Feta & Olive Turkey Burger




Share on Tumblr

Recipe By Chef Jim Coleman

A burger lover will never miss the beef in this version. The vegetables keep the meat moist, so feel free to use a low fat feta cheese. If salt is your issue, reduce the amount of olives and use a low sodium feta.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • ½ cup kalamata olives, pitted and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 roasted red pepper, chopped
  • Ground black pepper to taste

Directions

    1. Preheat the grill for medium high heat.
    2. In a large bowl, combine turkey, feta cheese, olives, oregano, red pepper and pepper. Mix together and form into patties.
    3. Lightly oil the grate. Place patties on the grill. Cook for 10 to 12 minutes, turning halfway through.
