Spinach Feta Turkey Burgers

You guys know how much I love simple, easy, delicious recipes. This one is definitely easy, simple, and delicious (especially if you recruit a husband to do the grilling for you...), but it's also healthy! 

Recipe adapted from here.

1 1/4 pound lean ground turkey (it comes in 1.25 lb packages at my grocery store, but if you just have 1 lb that's fine too!)
1 cup old-fashioned oats
2 large egg whites
10 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
6 oz crumbled feta cheese
8 Havarti cheese slices (or whatever toppings you want on your burgers!)
8 whole wheat buns (or whatever buns you want to use!)

1. Mix the turkey, oats, egg whites, spinach, and 1/2 cup of the feta (save the rest of the feta) in a large bowl. Don't be afraid to use your hands!
2. Divide the turkey mixture into 8 parts, and shape each one into a patty.
3. Grill over medium high heat until cooked through (about 6 minutes on each side, depending on how hot your grill is). Add havarti cheese slices for the last couple minutes of grilling time (so the cheese gets nice and melty).
4. Serve burgers on wheat buns, topped with the extra feta crumbles.
