  • 2 tbsp oregano tomato basil, or Italian seasoning
  • Sea salt/pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tbsp minced garlic

  • (Can choose to sauté chopped bell peppers, onion and sundried tomato in 1 tsp olive oil prior to mixing with rest of ingredients for added flavor).

  • Place patties on a flat top, grill or in a skillet with olive oil on medium heat.

  • Store in an air-tight container and refrigerate up to 5 days or store in freezer for later use.

    Rachael’s Greek turkey burgers are mind blowingly good! They are a staple in our house and I am always craving them. Made the recipe as is and they’re perfect.

    The best turkey burgers!! These are a staple in our house! We make every week and are always craving! So healthy and delish and packed with spinach and feta!!

    Had a craving for a chicken burger that had feta and veggies. I used the recipe and swapped the protein with 1 lb ground chicken and kept the veggie amount the same while halving the spices and it was beyond delicious. Will definitely be making this again on repeat.

    Love this recipe! We use it quite often. I double the carrots and celery and add minced onion flakes to it and use Uncle Ben’s Wild Rice. After a couple hours check it to see if it needs a little bit more water added.

  5. I made this on the stove top with slightly less sugar and I was amazed at how delicious this recipe was. Will definitely be making again and again. Thank you!
