Ingredients

    1 lb. 93% lean ground turkey
    1/4 c bread crumbs, plain
    1/2 c feta cheese, crumbled
    1 egg white
    1 T mint, fresh, chopped
    1 t oregano, dried
    1/4 t black pepper
    Cooking spray

Tips

Top with additional feta and arugula.


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.

  • Excellent with generous portions. Omitted the mint. Served in whole wheat pita with a slice of onion, greens, and some cucumber/garlic/cumin plain yogurt. Filling, tasty, and satisfying. Will make extra and freeze next time. - 11/12/12

  • My neighbor's 6yo grandson, who thought it was a "regular" burger, said it was the best hamburger he ever ate! We didn't tell him it was turkey! These were really good. - 11/22/11
