Greek Turkey Burgers

IMG_6768

My boyfriend is Greek and due to that, I have been introduced to a lot of Greek foods, which I absolutely love. Greeks follow the Mediterranean diet which is basically a diet full of FRESH fish, organic animal products, fresh dairy, produce, and lots of herbs. If you were to take the essential Greek ingredients and put them into a burger – here you have it!  This recipe is SO easy to make, nutrient dense and the flavor combination is divine. To make these, see all the details below.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1lb Ground Turkey (you can use chicken, too).
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Mint
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Parsley
  • 1/4 Cup Diced Red Onion
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Feta Cheese
  • 1/4 Cup Crumbled Greek Crackers or Panko
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 2 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Oregano
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp Pepper

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Combine all ingredients into a large bowl. IMG_6760
  2. Using your hands, form into 4-5 burger patties (take 1/3 cup, roll into a large meatball than pat flat/shape into a burger.)
  3. Place in the freezer for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Heat your grill (or large skillet) and grill each side for 3-4 minutes or until cooked.
  5. DONE!

Recommendations:

  1. You can enjoy this with purchased or make homemade Tzatziki.
  2. Top the burgers on a grilled portobello mushroom or sweet potato to create a “bunless” burger.
  3. Enjoy as a protein source on top of your favorite salad (as seen in photo).

Enjoy! 🙂
