"Ground turkey makes a great burger. It makes an even better one with feta cheese and kalamata olives. Serve these tasty treats with sun-ripened tomatoes and Greek-style pita." — Lol

Good Lord Almight! These burgers are fantastic! After blending the ingredients, I let them set up in the fridge for about 1 hour before forming patties. Grilling was no problem after brushing the grill with a generous layer of olive oil. Forget the bun -- these burgers don't need it. Instead top with a layer of steamed spinich and serve with Sweet potato french fries. Visually stunning and absolutely delicious!!
After quickly scanning this recipe I think they should be called "Italian Turkey Burgers." My thoughts of Feta cheese is "Greek." So, I used 1 1/2 lbs ground turkey breast, 2 tsp. greek seasoning & 1/2 cup Mediterranian Olives packed in olive oil. I also mixed the feta cheese right in the ground turkey. Fried them in a skillet with a little olive oil. I then brushed extra virgin olive oil on whole wheat buns and lightly toasted them. Topped the burgers with baby spinach leaves and a splash of fresh lemon juice. Totally healthy and delicious. I served these with a healthy greek salad . FYI: greek seasoning contains: onion powder, mint, oregano, garlic powder & sea salt. Gives the turkey burgers a little more flavor than all oregano. Try it!!
At first I was hesitant about this recipe because I thought the burgers would be a bit too dry. I ended up using ground turkey breast meat and added about 1/4 cup of chicken stock to the mixture of meat, feta and olives before I formed the patties. They turned out to be juicy and wonderful, Definitely a keeper!
YUMMY, YUMMY, YUMMY! Who knew usually dry turkey burgers could taste so good? Made the recipe for Memorial Day cookout and everyone raved. Here are some tips for serving. I used fresh spinach leaves, sliced onion and roasted red pepper as a base for the burger in the pita - and topped it all off with a spoon of cucumber sauce. There are now brands of feta that have olives, sun-dried tomato, and basil already incorporated into the cheese - and this makes a wonderful alternative to plain feta. Also, if turkey burgers are a bit dry, use half to 3/4 the amount of turkey and supplement with lean ground beef. This does help make it a bit more juicy. This recipe is definitely a keeper! THANKS, LOl!
Love, love, love this recipe! I am a new Mom and still have (7 months) later about 15 lbs. of baby weight to lose. I decided to try the Atkins diet and was looking for different things I could eat. These turkey burgers are fantastic without any bun or dressing. I even heated them up in the microwave the next day for about 50 secs. and they were just as tasty, if now better. Thanks!
Excellent! Great way to liven up ground turkey!
I used black olives instead of kalamata olives with great results. I highly recommend this recipe! Thanks for sharing it!!
Fabulous! I served these in pita pockets with lettuce and tomatoes. Hubby loved them.
So good, but needed fresh garlic (Everything does!)
