Suggestions on What to Serve with the Popeye’s Spinach and Hamburger Recipe

  1. Although served in a burrito, this recipe would make a great tasting burger.
  2. A potato salad or nice crisp salad with lettuce, baby spinach leaves, grape tomatoes, and croutons would make a great addition to this wonderful recipe.
  3. Use this recipe as a spinach dip (Add cream cheese if you’d like.) and serve it with crackers or chips.
  4. Add dill pickles on the side and a tomato slice if you decide to use the recipe for a popeye burger.

Other Options for Spinach Burgers

  1. Serve open-faced Popeye spinach burgers.
  2. Choose raw spinach leaves instead of the canned spinach as an option for hamburgers.
  3. Make a spicy spinach burger by adding these ingredients: tsp paprika, tsp black pepper, chopped red peppers, and hot sauce.
  4. Add parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, and an egg together in a small bowl. Whisk egg mixture with seasoned lean beef and raw chopped spinach in a large mixing bowl to form large hamburger patties. Transfer burgers to a large skillet and cook until done to perfection.
  5. Cook the raw spinach burgers on a gas grill or a charcoal grill.

This is one of the best spinach recipes I’ve had. In fact, my picky eater five-year-old grandson actually ate a whole burrito with the Popeye burger filling. When the kids like it, you know it’s good.

You can’t go wrong by adding green beans to any hamburger meal. And that’s even if the burger already has the green spinach vegetable included.

My dad always kept his weight down by consistently exercising and, I do believe, eating green beans often. We ate green beans often when I was living at home. In fact, we ate them so miuch that when I married, I didn’t cook green beans probably for two years.



  1. How you felt about green beans was how I felt about green peas. My mom served them all the time. When I made them for my family, they wanted to know why I didn’t make them more often. I love all of the options for serving this meat and spinach mixture. This is my kind of recipe–versatile.
