4 servings

1 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed

  • 1 pound 93% lean ground turkey

  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high. Squeeze excess moisture from spinach. Combine the spinach with turkey, feta, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper in a medium bowl; mix well. Form into four 4-inch patties. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the patties until cooked through and no longer pink in the center, 4 to 6 minutes per side. (An instant-read thermometer inserted in the center should register 165°F.) Assemble the burgers on the buns, topping each with 1 tablespoon tzatziki, 3 cucumber slices and 2 onion rings.

  • To make ahead: Prepare patties, wrap individually and refrigerate for up to 8 hours.

  • Tip: To oil a grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)
