I HAVE A CONFESSION:
I’m not the biggest burger person. When I see a burger on a menu I usually never pick the burger. My mouth doesn’t water at the sight of a burger, unless I find my way to a Shake Shack. Then I’ll likely scarf down their Shackburger with a side of cheese fries…but on to today’s topic: turkey burgers. Turkey burgers are a delicious + lean alternative to beef burgers. If they’re made right they can be juicy, flavorful, and have you wanting another. While experimenting with different meal prep options over the past few months, I sort of fell upon this Greek-inspired turkey burger creation, which you can grill or bake (your choice)! These patties are bursting with flavor and they won’t fall apart on you. If you’re not big on beef, give them a try!
Peep the recipe below.
Makes 4-6 servings, depending on patty size
- 1 lb ground turkey meat (I used white meat 94% lean 6% fat)
- 1 medium red bell pepper
- 1/2 medium sweet onion
- 2 tablespoons garlic and onion seasoning mix (The Gourmet Collection has my favorite)
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbles
- 1 pack brioche buns
- 2-3 campari tomatoes
- Taziki sauce (recipe)
- Finely dice the peppers and onions and place them in a large mixing bowl. You want them so small they're almost minced.
- With a fork, combine the ground turkey, pepper and onion mixture, seasonings and spices, garlic, and feta until everything is evenly distributed.
- Form the turkey burger mixture into 4 to 6 patties; size is completely up to you.
- Get your grill or your griddle nice and hot and spray with non-stick spray (otherwise they WILL stick)
- Grill for about 5 minutes on each side, top with fresh-sliced tomatoes and slather the bun with taziki sauce.
