I'm always looking for a good turkey/chicken burger and this is WONDERFUL. Juicy, full of flavor and not a bland thing about it. Serve with a yogurt cucumber sauce if you like. Works very well on the George Foreman.

Excellant!!!! My husband (who doesn't eat feta or spinach) LOVED it!!!! So did my 6 yr. old (the only one who wasn't impressed was my 3 yr. old). The only change I made was to add a handful of dried breadcrumbs. I topped this with tzatziki and served with roasted veggies. Thank you and God Bless!

Excellent burger! I made as directed using a 20 ounce package of ground turkey breast, it yielded four huge burgers. I used the leftover half of red onion (chopped) and combined it with 3 chopped roma tomatoes and some feta cheese and used it as a yummy topper! I will be making these again. Riff, thanks for posting!

These were delicious on the BBQ......just added 1/2-3/4 cup breadcrumbs to keep them together....served with Tzatziki sauce with or without a bun
