I took my favorite Greek flavors and stuck them in a turkey burger, topped it with creamy hummus and feta cheese…and then placed it all on a pita. It’s a Greek Turkey Burger and it should be on your grill this weekend!
This recipe makes four half-pound burgers.
2 pounds of ground turkey
about 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
1 1/2 teaspoons of dried oregano
a liberal pinch of salt & pepper
1 box of frozen spinach, defrosted and all of the excess liquid squeezed out
1 cup of sun dried tomatoes, chopped (I drain a small jar of them)
the zest and juice of one lemon
Crumbled feta cheese, hummus, chopped red onion, olives and/or capers to garnish
4 pieces of pita bread
Preheat your outdoor grill or indoor grill pan to medium-high heat.
Add the EVOO, dried oregano and liberal pinches of salt and pepper to your ground turkey. Add in the chopped spinach, chopped sun dried tomatoes, lemon zest and lemon juice too. Divide turkey into four sections and make four patties. Grill patties about 8 minutes per side or until cooked through.
Add your cooked burger patty to a piece of pita bread and then top with your favorite Greek toppings: creamy hummus, crumbled feta cheese, chopped red onion, olives and/or capers.
Kensington said these burgers tasted like big meatballs to her…to me, they were little bites of Greek deliciousness.
Happy Friday! Enjoy a burger (or two!) this weekend!
