Our friend Jessica White with Wander Woman – Kansas shared this recipe with us and we are so glad she did! Check out one of her new favorite ways to prepare her Pheasant, Feta & Spinach Burger!

“During the summer I love to be outside, especially to grill. That was when I thought of a great recipe to use up some of my pheasant; grilled feta and spinach pheasant burgers. These burgers have great flavor, are super simple to put together, and everyone enjoys them. I like them so much that when I saw a recipe contest from the National Wild Turkey Federation, I did not hesitate to submit my new, favorite recipe to them.”

Pheasant, Feta and Spinach Burger Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ lbs pheasant breast (about 5 to 6 breasts)
  • 1 ½ cups fresh spinach chopped
  • 5 oz crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 TBS garlic powder
  • ¼ cup Italian bread crumbs
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ¼ tsp salt

Optional Toppings: Red onion, lettuce, cucumber, mayonnaise, brioche buns


  1. Remove breast meat from the bird and be sure to thoroughly clean any feathers or shell pellets you can find.
  2. Cut the pheasant into chunks and run meat through a grinder.
  3. Combine ground meat, chopped spinach, feta, garlic powder, black pepper, salt, and bread crumbs in a bowl.
  4. Mix the ingredients well then portion the meat mixture evenly into uniform patties
  5. While patties are setting, preheat your grill to medium heat.
  6. Make sure the grill grates are clean and oiled to prevent sticking.
  7. Grill your pheasant patties until no longer pink and juices run clear, about five minutes per side.
  8. Serve patties on the brioche buns with the toppings of your choice.
