I teach high school Culinary Arts and Food & Nutrition and I'm always looking for new recipes for my students to try. Today we did a Pinterest lab and made Spinach Burgers (our healthy option). The kids gobbled them up and they were absolutely delicious! Whomever came up with this recipe is a genius! :) PS. They do have a bit of a kick to them, but you could easily cut back on the red pepper or omit completely.

Spinach Burgers
10 oz thawed and well drained frozen spinach
2 egg whites
1 egg
1/4 c diced onion
1/2 c lowfat shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 c bread crumbs
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Mix all ingredients well in a bowl. Form into 4 burger sized patties, or you can make smaller spinach balls. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium high heat and spray with cooking spray. Cook for 4-6 minutes on each side until browned. Serve on your choice of bread product, or eat them "naked".

These burgers are amazing. The recipe originally came from Better Homes and Gardens. I make a big batch of them, cook them, freeze them, and then reheat for easy yummy low calorie dish. You can also smash up saltines and replace the bread crumbs with them for an even more low calorie option. For those of you who like your food with some heat, I add hot sauce to the egg mixture and crushed red pepper, so that it mixes in evenly with the spinach and other ingredients.

Omgosh that sounds so yummy!

When you say 2 egg whites and 1 egg, does that mean 1 entire egg (white and yolk) or just the yolk?

Also would they be awesome as meatballs?
