Delish Greek Turkey Burger


Last night, Laura & I made an amazing - and healthy - Greek Turkey Burger. Laura found the recipe from a cookbook created by Bethany from 'Real Housewives of New York' (just to be clear, I do *not* watch that show). 

Besides being healthy, the burger was amazing! We paired it with a simple mixed greens salad with feta cheese & balsamic vinaigrette. Laura elected to add cucumbers to both the burger & salad.


Recipe: 

1 pound lean ground turkey
1/3 cup & 1 tsp chopped fresh parsley
3/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 3/4 ounces crumbled feta
4 whole-wheat hamburger buns
4 slices red onion
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 tsp lemon juice
  1. In a medium bowl, combine the ground turkey, parsley, pepper, salt, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, garlic powder, and feta.  Make 4 equal patties of ½ cup measure.
  2. Put the patties on a broiler pan lined with foil and sprayed with cooking spray.  Broil the patties for 5 to 6 minutes on each side, or until done.
  3. Place each burger on the bottom half of the bun, top with onion slice.  In a medium bowl combine the yogurt, 1 tsp parsley, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.  Top the burgers with the sauce and garnish with more parsley, if desired. Cover with top of bun.
