Turkey Burgers with Spinach

Turkey burgers are a staple in our house all year round but I especially enjoy making them when I can grill outdoors. Adding sauteed garlicky spinach is a great way to add moisture, boost flavor and fill your family’s dinner with vitamins and nutrients.  Leafy greens are a vital component to a healthy diet and most of us aren’t getting enough of them.   If you’re worried about picky eaters, you could certainly mince the spinach and hide it a la Jessica Seinfeld but I’m not a huge fan of hiding healthy food from kids.  Of course, my 8 month old didn’t join us for burgers this evening so who am I to say?

My picky husband ate two of these and gave rave reviews. In our house, that the same as a 2 year old’s approval.

Your grill is waiting.

Turkey Burgers with Spinach
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4
  • 4 c spinach
  • 1 clove garlic - grated
  • 1 tbs worcestershire sauce
  • 20 oz ground turkey breast
  • 2 tbs onion - grated
  • 1 tsp grill seasoning (such as McCormick's Montreal Steak Seasoning)
  • 4 sundried tomatoes packed in oil - minced
  1. Pre-heat the grill to high.
  2. Heat medium frying pan over medium-high heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Add garlic and cook 30 seconds before adding spinach and Worcestershire sauce.
  4. Saute for 5 minutes until wilted; set aside to cool in a medium bowl.
  5. Once spinach has cooled, use a paper towel to remove any excess moisture.
  6. Add ground turkey, grated onion, grill seasoning and sundried tomatoes.
  7. Form into burgers and grill until well done (about 4-5 minutes per side depending on thickness.)
Grated Onion: Using a cheese grater, hold onion and grate directly over bowl so that onion juices land in the turkey mixture. These juices provide a delicious onion flavor without adding large chunks of onion to the burger.
