Spinach-Feta Turkey Burgers

Today is National Burger Day, so in honor we’re offering this delicious lightened-up turkey burger option. These are perfect as you start to get bored with the same-old burgers – serve with a bun, in a pita or bun-less, with traditional burger ketchup or traditional Greek Tzatiki sauce for a more “exotic” twist! Delicious with lettuce, tomato and onion as you’d dress up any old burger, as well.
