How to make Low Carb spinach feta Greek burgers

Print this recipe
There's nothing I love more than a good, juicy burger. Unless it’s a juicy low-carb burger that’s loaded feta cheese. These are bursting with flavor because they're loaded with cheese and authentic Greek seasonings. This recipe is perfect for your next cook-out, but it also makes an easy weeknight meal.
I love how these burgers sneak in a hearty dose of vegetables in a way that hardly anyone will notice. The spinach not only makes them good for you, but keeps them moist, too. Serve these wrapped up in lettuce leaves with whatever burger fixings you like and everyone will leave the table satisfied.
