A Turkey Burger You’ll Actually Like!

turkey burgI admit, I’ve always scoffed at a burger made of anything other than beef. Veggie burgers certainly never appealed to me, if I was going to eat a burger it had to be a juicy hunk of red meat. However, my mom’s recent addition of turkey sausage to her Sunday sauce inspired me to explore the meat that I had once thought only served a purpose on Thanksgiving and occasionally as a cold cut. I was happily surprised by the outcome. The burger was still juicy and the addition of herbs, feta and avocado made the meal feel extra special!

Turkey Burgers with Herbs and Feta
1.3 lb ground turkey
2 T chopped fresh parsley
2 scallions chopped
1 t dried oregano
1/3 cup feta cheese
1/4 t salt
1/8 t ground black pepper
2 T olive oil for the pan
Burger bun of your choice (I went with whole wheat to be “healthy”)
1 avocado sliced (or any other toppings you like)

1. Add the olive to your pan and put on medium heat

2. Combine the parsley, scallion, oregano, feta, salt and pepper in a bowl

3. Add the turkey meat and gently combine until just mixed (don’t over-mix or you won’t get a juicy burger!)

4. Add the burgers to your pan and cook until the center temperature reaches 165 degrees F (usually 7-10 minutes on each side)

5. Add the bun and toppings of your choosing and enjoy!
