If you’re getting bored with standard turkey burgers, try this souped-up version bursting with flavor from traditional Greek ingredients like roasted red peppers, feta cheese, garlic, and oregano.
- Prep time
- Total Time
- 1.25 pounds ground turkey (at least 90% lean)
- 1 roasted red pepper (patted dry with paper towels), finely chopped
- 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 2 cloves garlic, minced (may substitute ½ teaspoon garlic powder)
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano (may substitute 2 teaspoons fresh oregano, finely chopped)
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
In a large bowl add the ground turkey, roasted red peppers, feta, garlic, oregano, onion powder, and red pepper flakes (if using). Season with black pepper to taste. Mix the ingredients together until they are fully incorporated. Divide the meat mixture into four equal portions and shape into patties.
Coat a large sauté pan with oil spray and place over medium-high heat. (Alternatively, preheat an indoor or outdoor grill pan coated with oil spray.)
Place the burgers in the pan and cook for 5 minutes per side, or until the burgers are no longer pink in the center.
