Our Greek Turkey Burgers turn out so juicy and flavorful, thanks to the spinach, feta, and sun-dried tomatoes mixed with the ground turkey. Toss these on the grill or cook them in a skillet or the air fryer for an easy, nutritious burger!
I’ve always been a huge fan of Mexican and Italian cuisines, but I only discovered my love for Greek food a few years ago. You can bet that I’m making up for lost time and enjoying the bright, vibrant flavors of Greece as often as possible!
These Greek turkey burgers are a summer favorite around here and you won’t believe how juicy and moist they are. Plus, they pack in loads of flavor thanks to the salty feta cheese, the zippy sun-dried tomatoes, and the vibrant Greek seasoning. We snuck some spinach in there too, because it makes us feel like proper adults who care about things like eating their greens. 😉
These Greek turkey burgers are perfect just as they are, but to really make these special, you’ll want to top them with our homemade tzatziki sauce, a creamy sauce made of Greek yogurt, grated cucumbers, and dill. It’s the perfect swap for mayo on a burger like this.

Ground Turkey – These homemade Greek turkey burgers start with lean ground turkey. Turkey gets a bad rap for being dry, but with our tips and tricks these will turn out so moist and flavorful.
Fresh Spinach – Some chopped fresh spinach will add color, nutritional value, and flavor to the turkey burgers!
Sun-Dried Tomatoes in Oil – We’re obsessed with the bright, zippy flavor of sun-dried tomatoes and they really pop in these burgers.
Feta Cheese – All good burgers have cheese and this time around we crumble it up and mix it right in with the meat. The result is a juicy burger with salty punches of cheese in every bite. Totally irresistible, if you ask me.
Greek Seasoning – We use and love Cavender’s Greek Seasoning. It’s perfect for these turkey burgers! If you’re using a different brand of seasoning you may need to add salt to the recipe, depending on how salty the blend is.

How To Make Greek Turkey Burgers:
Mix: To get started you’ll make the turkey burger patties by adding the ground turkey, chopped spinach, minced sun-dried tomatoes, crumbled feta cheese, and Greek seasoning to a mixing bowl. Stir it until well combined!
If you don’t have any Greek seasoning available you can use ½ teaspoon oregano, ½ teaspoon garlic powder, and ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper as a substitute.
Shape: Form the turkey mixture into 4 patties a bit larger than your hamburger buns.
Cook: To begin preparing the burgers start heating some oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When it is shimmering, add the turkey burger patties and cook on each side until browned and cooked through.
It’ll take about 5 to 7 minutes per side. Check with a meat thermometer to be sure the spinach & feta turkey burgers hit a safe temp of 165 degrees.
I love using this meat thermometer for making sure the meat is fully cooked! Easy for beginners & absolutely worth the low cost.
Serve: When the turkey burgers have finished cooking you can start assembling the sandwiches!
We like to toast our buns in a skillet (spread them with a bit of butter first) and then spread some tzatziki sauce on the buns and top the burgers with lettuce, cucumber, red onion, and tomato! Serve these Greek turkey burgers alongside some Greek fries or a side salad with our Greek dressing!
This Greek pasta salad would also be a great choice for a side!
Grilled Turkey Burgers:
If you’re the type who prefers grilling to cooking in a skillet when it comes to burgers, this recipe will work great for you too! You can grill these Greek turkey burgers just as easy as you can sear them in a skillet.
Prepare the turkey burger patties per the instructions in this recipe and grill them for about 5 to 6 minutes per side depending on their thickness. I’d recommend using a meat thermometer to be sure they reach 165 degrees!
Air Fryer Turkey Burgers:
These spinach & feta turkey burgers are just as good air fried as they are pan fried or grilled! Plus, clean up is a breeze when you use an air fryer.
Prepare the turkey burger patties per the recipe instructions and then air fry at 360 degrees for about 14 minutes, flipping halfway through. Check with a meat thermometer for a safe temp of 165 degrees before serving!
Yes, you could prepare the turkey burger patties ahead of time and refrigerate until you are ready to cook. They should be okay in the fridge for 1 to 2 days depending on the freshness of the meat.
You can keep any leftover Greek turkey burgers stored in your fridge in an airtight container for about 2 to 3 days. They can be reheated easily in the microwave or on the stove.
