A ‘Betta’ Feta & Spinach Turkey Burger.

Today I was craving a good burger. Everyone likes a good burger. I’m a turkey burger kinda gal, and tonight I made a turkey burger that trumped all the other burgers I’ve ever made. Mostly because its the first burger I’ve actually ever cooked on my own (which explains the over-adequately doneness of these babies), but also because it was so flavorful and moist I could have eaten the burger all by itself. The secret: FETA CHEESE. Inside of it AND on top.

One of my favorite mottos: Feta makes everything betta.

It truly does. Especially turkey, which tends to be a little lower on the flavor scale. Another great thing about these burgers: they’re so easy and don’t use very many ingredients. All you need is:

  • 1 lb. of ground turkey
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • A couple handfuls of spinach (frozen would work too)
  • 3/4 cup of feta
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Toasted buns, lettuce, ketchup, and mustard for serving
Mix the turkey, egg, spinach, and feta together and make them into 5-6 patties. Cook them in a skillet or on the grill about 7-8 minutes each side, or until you think they’re done. (Mine were suuper done, but better done than raw, right?)
Top the burgers with a little more feta (or alot), and serve them on the toasted buns with lettuce, ketchup, and mustard. (Or other toppings of your choice, but I seriously doubt you’ll want to add anything else.)
I enjoyed mine with an ice cold Grapefruit Izze and an episode of Reba. (: Happy Betta Feta Burgers y’all!

    Hmm…I might just try these. Our college kids have recently discovered “feta”. The cheese choices they had growing up were rather limited to the unprocessed blocks. Feta is probably betta.
