spinach “burgers”

I promised something a bit more “booty-friendly” and here it is! These are high in protein, low in carbs and absolutely delicious. Now, if you’re not fond of green things.. stick around. I have something pink and fluffy later.

Mix well in a bowl like this:

Now, form into burger-sized patties. (or you can do spinach balls)

Heat a non stick skillet over med-high. Spray with a bit of cooking spray.

Some may have to wait their turn, depending on your skillet size.

 

Serve on your choice of bread product, or eat them “naked”.

I you want to know how I like them, it’s with onion and ranch on a pita. maybe even a splash of hot sauce. That’s the ticket!

This post was published earlier, but…. I upgraded my wordpress and it didn’t get along with my site theme. Bummer. Oh well…up and running now! Woo-hoo!

  1. I would love to try these but would omit the salt for my dad and maybe substitute feta cheese for the regular cheese because I think Feta is less in sodium. These look wonderful!

  2. I just made these right now. I completely followed the recipe except probably added more egg whites since it was from a carton. So the done product looked like Egg Foo Yung with Spinach. LOL However when I tasted it, it was perfect. The bread crumbs balanced everything out. I’ll definitely make these again but maybe omit the cheese since trying to cut the fat wherever I can.

  3. I’ve made these twice before (making a quadruple batch tomorrow because they are THAT good) and I freeze them after cooking every time. Also I can’t stand cooked spinach but these burgers are delicious, so don’t hesitate to make them even if someone in your household says they don’t like cooked spinach. Five stars!

  4. You wouldn’t happen to know the nutrition facts in these would you?? These are amazing!! 🙂 they are becoming apart of my food choices every single week.
