"Fabulous! I made exactly as posted, except I added some Southern Seasoning and cooked them outside on the charcoal grill. I have never been a fan of how chicken/turkey burgers look, because of the light color. So I decided to cook them on the grill to give these burgers some color and enhance the flavor with the smoke. I halved the recipe (except for the garlic), and topped one burger with pepper jack cheese and left one plain. Both were delicious. Thanks for sharing!"
"This is an excellent recipe! I made it using ground turkey, I sauteed the spinach with onions and several different herbs. For the bread crumbs I used italian style panko and ended up using much more than the recipe called for because they weren't staying together."
"Definitely more than 5 stars!! I had to use turkey and it's normally so dry. The spinach (and I used 4 cloves of garlic) made the burger so moist. I also added dried sage and onion powder. Next week (when I make these again) I think I'll add some tabasco to the mixture. Yummy!! Made for Make My Recipe Tag Game 2011."
"very good I made this using ground turkey instead of chicken, I increased the garlic and added in seasoned salt and lots of fresh ground black pepper, I also added ion some cayenne pepper, thanks for sharing Booms!"
"These are very good! I made them with ground turkey and frozen (thawed and drained) spinach. They couldn't be easier, and the texture was lovely! I did add extra garlic and a few hefty shakes of salt and pepper after reading other reviews. I made them a few hours in advance and put them in the fridge and they held together fine on the Foreman Grill. Thanks for posting! Made for Best of 2010 tag."
"Deliciously different. The spinach kept the burger moist and they didn't shrink that much on me like they normally do. I had to use ground turkey, since the store had no chicken. :)"
"YUMMY! This is the best, low fat, healthy, and tasty. Have made twice the first time DH looked at it with skepticism but was quickly in heavy like. The second time I forgot to add the breadcrumbs and the Spinach Burgers were still great. As empty nesters we often have leftovers so instead of trying to reheat the next day I sliced them on to bread and served the same way you would a meatloaf sandwich. Both times topped with cheese once provolone and the second swiss, while both were very good the swiss went just little better with the spinach. This is a must try and has gone into our favorites recipe book."
"The BEST use of 3 ingred.! I made this two nights in a row. They are a pleasure to make and the result is more complex than you'd imagine. The one thing I do differently is that I chop the drained spinach in my Magic Bullet, and the green flecks are evenly distributed, resulting in an attractive patty that holds together beautifully. Thanks Boomette! Roxygirl"
"Very nice recipe! Trying to keep with our New Year's resolution of eating healthier and these burgers sure did help! Made exactly as directed, except I was able to make 5 burgers. I was pleased with how moist they were and they were loved by everyone in the house, including the "Beef and Potatoes" DH. Thank you so much for posting."
"Thanks so much for helping me out! I needed a nice lean burger, but only had beef that wasn't too lean. So I chunked up one chicken breast half and threw it into the food processor along with a handful of fresh spinach and one clove garlic. Whirred it up until nicely combined, made a couple patties and viola! a fantastic tasting chicken patty!"
"I was drawn to this recipe not as a way to "use up" spinach as several reviewers have said, but because I love spinach! Just loved the simplicity of the recipe: few ingredients and quick to make so a great midweek recipe! I doubled the recipe, so I'd have some burgers to put in the freezer, and was so glad to have done so as these burgers were every bit as moist and flavoursome as I'd anticipated. The burgers for the freezer I cooked for only about five minutes per side. The only changes I made were that - as a garlic lover - I doubled the garlic and I added some cumin. Made for New Zaar Stars Tag. Thank you, Boomette, for a great recipe that I know I'll make again and again, and each time the burgers will be slightly different, as each time I'll probably add whatever herbs and spices strike my fancy at the time. That's one of the great things about recipes with only a few ingredients: there's room to vary the recipe without it becoming overly complicated!"
"MMMM...yummo Chicken Burger! I, too, followed LUVMY2BOYS review and made a double burger with Mozz cheese. Thanks for a great burger recipe, Boomette! Made for MsSally's Grilling Event in Cooking Photos."
"What a great way to use up spinach!! Followed Luvmy2boys' idea - and cooked the spinach with onions first! Also used ground beef instead of ground chicken. Merci Boomette! :)"
"I really enjoyed this! I used lean ground turkey & parmesan cheese for the breadcrumbs. I cooked the spinach with some onion & garlic-added some oregano, salt, pepper & worchestershire to the patty for some flavor. I made a "wrap" out of this with some lettuce & pickles mixed together, mustard & some reduced fat feta cheese. It was delicious!! Great way to use up spinach! Thnk u for sharing this."
"Very good. I think the spinach added a lot of moisture and color to this recipe. My boys kept asking what the funny green stuff was but they ate them up! Made for Star Tag."
"These were great. Thanks so much for the low fat healthy recipe, that got some green stuff into my DH and me. He loved them and said over and over these are really good. I served regular burger style with a slice of 2% cheddar and lettuce, tomatoe and mayo. The only thing I may do next time, is add a little onion to the mix. I cooked mine in a little olive oil cooking spray."
"These were amazing. We made them by the recipe and then put them in pita bread with some provolone cheese and bbq sauce. Everyone in the house including the 1 year old gobbled them up. Thank you for posting."
"This was so easy and very moist. I did not need an egg to bind it together - the recipe as is was great. My husband sprinkled lots of garlic pepper on each side before cooking."
"I chose this recipe for the Winter 07 Zaar Tag game. I liked it very much because it suits my schedule (i.e., simple and fast) and it provided healthy fair (protein and greens with not much fat). I admit that I added a beaten egg to it in step one when mixing because I wanted to make sure it adhered together as a burger, even when sliced after cooking, as for placing in a salad; therefore, it may or may not need the egg as a binder. Since it was just my DH and I, the first night we served the patties in buns as if they were regular burgers -- mine with sliced cheese, and his without cheese but with dill pickles. The second day I took one to work and served it sliced and diced on a bed of greens with diced tomatoes, and drizzled with a favorite dressing."
