Feta Turkey Burger

If you have yet to follow Fit Minded Mom, your missing out. Her blog is honest, and fun, and most importantly inspiring. As a matter of fact, she was the inspiration behind the feta turkey burgers my family enjoyed for supper last night. I had full intentions of following her recipe to a T, but was missing several of her ingredients (spinach) and had a couple of things in the fridge that I needed to use before they went bad (mushrooms). So with a couple of tweaks to a recipe that looked perfect, this is what I came up with.

Ingredients

1lb of lean ground turkey meat

1 egg

1/4 cup of crumbled feta cheese

Worcestershire sauce

1/2 cup of sliced white mushrooms

1/2 sliced medium onion

1 handful of breadcrumbs

Salt & pepper (I used a spice mixture my husband made for a barbeque last week that included cayenne, thyme, oregano, S&P- I think the cayenne gave it a little something special)

Extra virgin olive oil

Preparation

  1. Combine turkey, breadcrumbs, spices, a couple drizzles of worcheshire sauce, and egg in to a mixing bowl.
  2. Add feta and mix well to create four patties.
  3. Heat a skillet over medium heat and add olive oil.
  4. Cook the patties two at a time until done.
  5. While the patties are on the grill, heat a separate skillet over medium-high heat and drizzle with olive oil.
  6. Saute the onions and mushrooms for several minutes until they begin to soften and then add a couple of tablespoons of worcestershire sauce.
  7. Cover and continue to saute until both the mushrooms and onions are soft.
  8. Place turkey patty on a bun and top with mushrooms and onions or serve with a large salad.Image

My husband is typically not a fan of the turkey burger. To bland he says. But this one he approved of. It was DE-LISH!!
