Healthy Grilling: Spinach & Feta Turkey Burgers

ph: greenlitebites.com


There are few things I love more than a good summer grilling party.  However, all those burgers, hot-dogs, and sausages are full of fat.  Here is a great (and delicious) option to keep things low-fat from www.greenlitebites.com.

Ingredients:
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 cup Old Fashioned Oats
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 10 oz frozen chopped spinach
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta
1. Defrost spinach; squeeze as much liquid as you can out of it by using your hands and a strainer.
2. Combine all ingredients in large bowl using your hands (don't overwork).
3. Form patties.
4. Grill.

How easy is that?!  I like to eat mine sans bun to lower my carb intake.  Another turkey burger option I want to try is adding sundried tomatoes- yum!

Note: When making mine, I like to add some minced garlic or garlic powder.- can't get enough of garlic- and a little salt and pepper.
