Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 lb. 93% lean ground turkey
    1/4 c bread crumbs, plain
    1/4 c feta cheese, crumbled
    1 egg white
    1 T mint, fresh, chopped
    1 t oregano, dried
    1/4 t black pepper
    Cooking spray

Directions

Mix all ingredients until just combined. Overworking the mixture can result in tough burgers. Heat a non-stick skillet to medium low heat. Divide the meat mixture into 4 round balls. Flatten the burgers with your hand and press your thumb in the center of each burger to keep the meat from rising too high as it cooks. Spray skillet. Cook the burgers about 5-6 minutes per side, flipping only once, until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.

  • Very good. We really enjoyed it. - 4/22/13

  • Wonderful! Added some diced scallions to the burgers and red onion on top when serving. Used whole wheat sandwich thins instead of pita and they were GREAT. Also, don't fear the mint - it adds a lot. - 8/9/11

  • Made this for friends. A 5 yo grandson came and was told that the adults were having Turkey Burgers but that I made a regular hamburger for him. He devoured his "hamburger" and said it was the best hamburger he'd ever had! Arnold's, and grilled squash & onions w/SP fries rounded out the meal. Tasty! - 6/14/11

  • I make a burger much like this, using parmesan reggiano instead of the feta and no bread crumbs... but this is just as good. Thanks for sharing! - 5/30/11
