Greek Turkey Burger

Turkey burgers do not need to be the boring alternative.  Healthy swaps, made yummy, is what The Clean Cooks is all about.  With spinach on the inside and a cauliflower bun on the outside, you will have no problem meeting your veggie goal for the day!

1 lb. ground turkey — I chose 93/7. I wanted lean, but not too dry.

1/2 c. chopped green onion — about 4

1/2 c. feta cheese

1 TBS. minced garlic

1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper

2 c. chopped spinach– measured after chopping, pressed tightly but not packed

ground turkey

Combine turkey, green onion, egg, garlic, feta, and black pepper.

Add chopped spinach and combine well.

mixed turkey burger

Divide mixture into six patties.  I used one teaspoon of coconut oil or an olive oil cooking spray on the frying pan.

Cook for 5 minutes on medium heat.  Flip and press firmly with the spatula.  This helps to flatten the pattie a little and ensure the center cooks well.

Continue to cook approximately 4 minutes longer. Tzatziki Sauce is a perfect condiment for these burgers and can be found in The Clean Cooks post on Chicken Gyro Salad.
