Oxmoor House
6 servings (serving size: 1 burger)

A small amount of pungent goat cheese flavors the creamy spread. Double the spread and use it on grilled chicken or turkey sandwiches.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 6 ingredients and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl, mixing gently. Divide turkey mixture into 6 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/4-inch-thick patty. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add patties to pan; cook 8 minutes on each side or until done.

Step 2

Combine remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper, yogurt, and next 4 ingredients (through mint) in a bowl, stirring well. Spread 1 1/2 tablespoons yogurt mixture on the bottom half of each bun; top each serving with 1 lettuce leaf, 1 onion slice, and 1 patty. Place top half of bun on each serving.

This was a good burger, but for me it needed some tomatoes on it. My husband really loved it especially the goat cheese spread. I thought it was ok I'm not much of a cheese person though.

Really tasty - enjoyed the flavorful burger and the delicious spread. My 7 year old even ate some burger (no spread) and liked it even with the greens in the burger. Will definitely make this again.

I really liked the burgers. The spread was ok for me but the burgers were great. Loved the spinach in them.

Delish! I didn't have fresh oregano so I used ground and I'm sure it would be even better with fresh. The lemon zest gives it a bright, fresh flavor.

These were okay, but there are so many better turkey burgers out there. The spinach was a bit overpowering compared to the rest of the ingredients. You can definitely taste the mint in the goat cheese spread.

These were really good, my husband said they were the best turkey burger (he loved the mint). The lemon in the burger was really nice although the goat cheese spread was more herby then cheesy. I added a little more goat cheese for more flavor but I don't think it made a huge difference. The burgers and spread had a really nice flavor to them and everyone at the dinner party enjoyed them.

A nice change from ketchup and mustard, the goat cheese spread with herbs is light and flavorful. I really liked the spinach and lemon zest in the burgers. Great way to sneak in vegetables! I served it with simple oven fries with olive oil drizzle and salt and pepper.

Tasty recipe! Good, solid turkey burger that grills well - plenty of moisture in burger so it does not get too dry on grill. Sauce adds nice balance to burger. We served the burgers with grilled sweet potatoes and asparagus.

So boring - we had to leave out the goat cheese as our town mysteriously ran out of it in EVERY grocery store - not worth the effort. Try a different turkey burger recipe.

I also thought the turkey patties would dry out because the cooking time I thought was a bit long but they came out juicy. The patties themselves have great flavor with the herbs and the creamy spread is a nice compliment.
