Spinach Artichoke Grilled Turkey Burgers

Our family, including our beloved Grandma Lorraine, who famously told us that “there’s not much in life that can’t be made better with butter,” has made developing the perfect batch of butter our family legacy. This goal is more than 125 years in the making, a passion passed on from generation to generation, including our children, who make up generation six.
The end result is a line high butterfat butter in multiple, dreamy flavors, from sea salt butter to the garlic herb variety.
You can grab the rolled version of our butter — or the classic sticks you’ll often find on store shelves — from your local market or specialty store, by using our location tool.
So, without further ado, here’s The Speckled Palate’s recipe for Spinach Artichoke Grilled Turkey Burgers:
Spinach and Artichoke Stuffing
- 14 oz. artichoke hearts, drained and rinsed
- 3 cups fresh spinach
- 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 2 tablespoons sea salt butter, softened
- 4 cloves garlic (roasted, if available)
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 2 lbs. ground turkey (93% lean)
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 6 burger buns, buttered with extra butter
- Make the filling. Combine the artichoke hearts, spinach, cream cheese, butter, garlic cloves, salt and pepper in the base of a food processor. Blend until incorporated. (If using a smaller food processor, work in batches.)
- Transfer to a bowl, cover and refrigerate.
- Form the burgers. In a bowl, mix the turkey with salt and pepper. Divide into 12 equal portions.
- Form each portion into a patty, making it 1/2″ thick.
- Dollop two tablespoons of the filling onto the center of 6 of the burger patties.
- Top each patty with filling with another that doesn’t, and gently seal the edges. Work quickly.
- Refrigerate burgers.
- Preheat grill. When hot, brush the grates with a little oil before placing the burgers on the grill.
- Grill the burgers over medium-high heat, flipping once.
- Take the burger’s temperature with a meat thermometer. We want the turkey to reach 165 degrees F.
- When the burgers are done, remove them from the grill, and turn off the heat.
- Place the buttered burger buns on the grill. Grill for 2-3 minutes, or until the buns are toasty.
- Serve the burgers with any extra stuffing on the buns, and enjoy warm!
