Dan's Feta and Spinach Turkey Burgers

There are many qualities I love about my husband.  However, my absolute favorite is that the man can cook.

Yes, he can cook well.  (Even when he is recovering from having his hip replaced and got out of bed to cook dinner.)

My new favorite meal that he makes is his turkey burgers.  I swear every time I bite into one I fall more in love with him.

I try to put them on the dinner plan at least once every other week.  All I need to do is add a few sides and dinner is served (last night we also had roasted sweet potato fries and tomato / cucumber / onion salad).

Ina also loves them, but unfortunately, even though she ate half of one last night, she woke up a few times.  I am afraid she is trying to cut 4 teeth at once.  We can already see a new one on top!  

Sorry, back on track now...

Yesterday I tried to write down what Dan did so I could share Dan's best quality with all of you!

Sorry, you still have to make them.  And hands off the sideburns.  Those are all mine.

One more note - Cavendar's Greek Seasoning is what makes these so good, so don't skip out on that ingredient.

Have you tried it?  We pretty much add it to everything around here.  (Please ignore the mess on the kitchen floor.  Anything to keep Ina away from the wine rack, under the kitchen sink, and the dog bowl.)

If you buy the Cavendar's you won't be sorry.  

Here you go!


  • 1.25 lbs of ground turkey
  • 1 cup of fresh spinach, chopped
  • 2 oz crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tsp Cavendar's Greek Seasoning (divided)
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper

Directions: Mix all the ingredients, except 1 teaspoon of Cavendar's together in a bowl with your hands.  Split into five equal portions and form into patties.  Sprinkle the reamining teaspoon of Cavendar's on the outside of the patties.  

Fry in a skillet or throw them on the grill.  Either way they are great.

I eat them plain, but Dan loves to eat them on a sandwich thin with a healthy (or not-so-healthy?) dollop of mayo.  

I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!  

Have a blessed day!



  1. Great husbands are hard to find!! Glad I have one, too! :-) These turkey burgers sound great. I love to make a big batch and freeze them. I never thought to add feta cheese. Think I will try that for the next batch!!

    1. You must try it! Sometimes we add pepperjack cheese - whatever we have on hand. Good idea to freeze them. That way, I don't have to have Dan here! Hehehe.

  2. I think we might have to try these. I found a recipe to make our own Greek Seasoning blend that I'll have to give a try. The Cavendar's has MSG and some other nasty's that we try to avoid in our house.


    Thanks for the recipe :)

    1. Wow, I didn't even think of that. I really appreciate you pointing that out Lisa. Dan probably won't though. Hahaha. I am going to try that recipe!

  3. This is almost exactly how I make my turkey burgers, but I use the Salt Free Cavenders, and I add an egg to the meat mixture! Delish!!!! Next time, I'm going to add the spinach!!

  4. that looks so good! Love when a man can cook for sure!!!

  5. Oooh, I have some Cavendar's in my spice cabinet. Turkey burger heaven, here I come. :)


  6. Yay! I'm so excited to try these. I might try them with Ground Pork for my hubby. Bu first I need to find a ground pork that's not too grizzly for him! ;-) Thank you for sharing!

    So glad you appreciate that your husband cooks. That is a dream of mine! ;-)

  7. I need to try this! Thanks for sharing!
