Spinach Cheddar Burgers

*Updated from the recipe archive!

Summer is gone, but it’s still warm enough to grill. The shortest day of the year is almost here, so it’s time to get those grills fired up one last time. I’ve been making these burgers for years now and they never disappoint. They work well with ground beef, pork, turkey or chicken.


20 oz (1.25 lb) lean ground pork, beef or turkey
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 (10oz) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 packet dry onion soup mix


Quite simple, really. Mix the ingredients together very well, form into 6 or 7 patties and grill or broil until well done. The cheese crisps up very nice and adds a great texture to the burger. I usually dress the burger up with a slice of cheese, shredded cabbage (far superior to lettuce in my opinion) and ketchup.

When I don’t have grill access, I’ll cook it in a pan on medium heat. It takes a little longer too cook all the way through, but it comes out super crispy.
