Greek turkey burger

Everything tastes better on the grill. That is the truth! These turkey burgers put most of the toppings inside the burger, allowing you plenty of room for other fun toppings and keeping the meat nice and moist.  I love ground turkey because it tastes so good and is a great alternative to red meat, but I find it does dry out awfully quick on the grill so adding all of the ingredients gives it a helping hand on the hot grill.

You can skip the bun altogether to save some carbs for something better. Might I suggest some Mediterranean orzo salad?

You’ll need:

  • 1 lb. lean ground turkey
  • 1 green onion chopped
  • 1/2 t. pepper
  • 1 t. salt
  • 2 T. parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 c. feta crumbles
  • 2 T. lemon juice
  • 1 t. crushed garlic
  1. Mix all ingredients with hands and form four patties.
  2. Grill about 4 minutes on each side.
  3. Top with fresh tomatoes, olives, or dare I say: more cheese???
