Feta Turkey Burgers

My husband and I are going through some major life changes... like a baby on the way (where is she anyways? We are waiting!), me quitting my corporate job to stay home full-time, responsible financial budgeting, etc. Some major daily changes are trips to Starbucks and spending MUCH less on eating out. Not that we did it a lot... but for us.. going out 2-3x a week ended up being like $600 dollars a month! We figured that money was better placed in our retirement fund and so I've become the cooking house wife a few more nights a week. But lately, he's been complaining that everything is just "too healthy"... and that leads him to wanting to go out to eat and sway from our budgeting plans. Dinner served on a silver platter upon walking in the door from work is just not unhealthy enough.. rough life! So in my attempt to please him.. I made these so-good-they-don't-even-taste-healthy Feta Turkey Burgers. But don't worry... healthy they are. Except for the bun part... I've learned to pick my battles. 

By the way... he knows he married a nutritionist, right? I caught him sneaking sugar cookies into our grocery cart last week. This is why I suggest leaving the kids and husband at home in my Meal Planning post. 

Top them with onions, pickles, tomato, mustard and wrap them up in lettuce and you've got your serving of protein and vegetables complete. Serve with a side of sweet potato fries and you're practically in heaven. 

Prep Time: 5 Minutes

Cooking Time: 15-20 Minutes (depending on how you like them done)

Servings: 4 Patties

Directions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, mix all ingredients with your hands. Massage together until firmly packed. 
  2. Separate into 4 patties. 
  3. Place on grill for 15-20 minutes depending on how well done you like your burgers, flipping occasionally. 
  4. Top with whatever you like! 

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb Ground Turkey
  • 1/4 Red Onion Chopped
  • 2 TBSP Minced Garlic
  • 1/4 Cup Feta 
  • 1 TSP Salt
  • 1 TSP Oregano
  • 1 TSP Pepper
  • Cilantro or Parsley Chopped
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 TBSP Worcestershire 

If you don't have a grill, it's too hot or cold or you simply just want to stay inside after a long day.. try them on a good ole' George Foreman. Multiple uses and a great alternative to grilling! 

 

We ate them with sweet potato fries because what goes better with a burger than fries? But if you are trying for lower carb... they would be deliciously paired with my recent parmesan asparagus side dish!
