Greek-Flavored Turkey Burgers

Bursts of feta cheese, red onion, and fresh mint add spark to these flavorful burgers.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 burger)


  • 1 none large egg white
  • 1 cup chopped red onion
  • 3/4 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup (about 1 1/2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • none Cooking spray
  • 4 none (1 1/2-ounce) hamburger buns, split
  • 1 none (7-ounce) bottle roasted red bell peppers, drained and cut into 1-inch strips


Place egg white in a large bowl; lightly beat with a whisk. Add onion and next 6 ingredients (through turkey); stir well to combine. Divide turkey mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add patties to pan; cook 8 minutes on each side or until done.

Place patties on bottom halves of hamburger buns. Divide peppers evenly among burgers; cover with top halves of buns.

Note: To freeze extra servings, wrap each uncooked patty individually first in plastic wrap and then in heavy-duty aluminum foil. Freeze for up to 2 months. To serve, thaw patties completely in refrigerator, and then cook and serve as directed.
