Greek Turkey Burgers

    Since I am revisiting my recipes and making them healthier, I thought this one was a great place to start. Between the saltiness of the feta, the sweetness of the roasted peppers, and the slight kick from the chilies and paprika, these are seriously delicious, and a huge family favorite. I basically added extra veggie power by throwing chopped spinach and diced chiles into the burgers and cutting the amounts of feta and paremsan cheese I originally used. And I skipped the bun all together and served it on a bed of fresh spinach and lettuce with just a drizzle of Balsamic Vinaigrette. Much healthier and ohhhhh sooooo delish! Why don't you give it a try and let me know what you think?

Greek Turkey Burgers


You Need:
  • 1 (20 oz) package lean ground turkey breast

  1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients, mixing very well.
  2. Divide into equal sized patties. (I usually get anywhere between 5 and 7 patties depending on how big I make em)
  3. Coat a pan with non stick spray and place over medium to medium high heat.
  4. Cook patties for 7-8 minutes on each side or until no longer pink in the center.
  5. Top each burger with cheese.
  6. Serve on your choice of buns. I love mine served without the bun, on a bed of spinach and lettuce with a drizzle of Balsamic Vinaigrette..
