Spinach & Feta Turkey Burger

It’s that time of month for the Recipe ReDux theme recipe! What were all the Recipe Redux-ers up to this month?

A Play on Patties: While St. Patty’s Day will be over by the time The Recipe ReDux rolls around this month, we’re celebrating the ‘patty’ all month long. We’ve seen images of stacked patties go crazy on food photo sharing sites like HealthyAperture.com; so stack ‘em up! Think healthy tuna burgers, potato patties, or veggie stacks.

Honestly, right now I have been so busy, I just remembered tonight about Recipe ReDux. It’s quite alright because I has just the ingredients I needed to whip up a tasty “patty”.

  1. Mmmm this sounds delicious! Turkey anything is amazing 🙂 I made a white and green turkey chilli yesterday, tasty-thing! I was quite amused when I read St. “Patty” haha! *facepalm* x

  2. I love me some turkey burgers! Yummy! I may need to add 1/2 cup of feta cheese ;). I just read your about page, and I’m so excited to meet a fellow dietetic intern! When will you be done? Mine ends in July! Can’t wait to finally become an RD. I’m sure you can relate ;). I look forward to following you, Julie!
