I have been making this recipe since I was in college. It is always a hit with everyone and easy to make! Enjoy!
Laura's Greek Turkey Burgers
Delicious, Greek-style burgers! Paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free recipe that is sure to please the whole family!
- 1 pkg ground turkey
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 1 T grass-fed butter or ghee
- 1 t chopped garlic
- 4 cups spinach leaves
- 2 eggs
- 1 T fresh or dried basil
- 1 t fresh or dried oregan
- 1/4 t sea salt
- 1/4 T black pepper
Bring a large skillet to medium-high heat on the stove and melt butter. Add onion and garlic and, stirring often, cook until softened, about 4 minutes.
Add spinach to the skillet with onion and garlic. Stirring often, cook until spinach has wilted and excess moisture has evaporated, 3 – 5 minutes.
Remove skillet from heat. Once cool enough to handle, carefully blot away any excess moisture from the onion-spinach mixture with paper towels. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine turkey, eggs, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper. Using your hands, mix well. Add cooked veggies to the bowl. Using your hands, mix until uniform.
Evenly divide turkey mixture and firmly form into four patties. (Cover and refrigerate if not cooking immediately.) If you want sliders, make 8 patties!
Bring a greased skillet pan to medium heat. Add patties, cover, and cook for 5 – 8 minutes per side, until cooked through.
Eat your patties with a knife and fork or, if you like, wrap them up in some lettuce leaves with onion and tomato. Pictured above I served the burgers on top of spaghetti squash with marinara sauce! Enjoy 🙂
If you do consume dairy products, I would highly recommend adding 1/2 cup of feta cheese to the burger mix. It adds a great flavor to the burgers!
