Greek Turkey Burgers
When you are short on time, these Greek turkey burgers come together fast for a delicious dinner.
- 1 lb. ground turkey
- 1/4 cup onion finely minced
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 1/2-2 cups fresh baby spinach chopped
- 3 tablespoons chopped sun dried tomatoes packed in oil & herbs
- 4 slices mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup feta cheese
- 4 whole wheat buns
In large bowl, mix all ingredients together, excluding the cheese. Form into 4 large patties, place onto plate and cover in plastic wrap.
Store in refrigerator for 2 hours or so before cooking (ideally). You can cook these right away, but the garlic flavor won't be as strong.
To cook the burgers, grease grill rack or skillet with oil or non stick cooking spray. Heat grill or skillet to medium heat. Place burgers into pan/onto grill and cook about 6 minutes per side or until there is no more pink meat! If you're unsure, cut one of those babies open just to double check. Turn heat down to low and top with mozzarella and feta cheese.
Cook patties another minute or until cheese has melted. Place patties onto buns and top with spinach and mayonnaise and/or any other desired toppings.
You don't want your grill to be super hot because odds are you will char the outside and have a raw inside. Thats why I use a moderate heat. If you want, you can char the outside to get nice grill marks and then finish cooking them in the oven. If you choose to cook the burgers completely on the grill, the once you place them on, cover them up and leave them alone! If you keep moving them around, they probably are going to fall apart! So resist the urge and don't touch!
