Bursts of feta cheese, red onion, and fresh mint add spark to these flavorful burgers.
1 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
4 (1 1/2-ounce) hamburger buns, split
1 (7-ounce) bottle roasted red bell peppers, drained and cut into 1-inch strips
How to Make It
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.
Good, moist, flavorful. I made exactly as directed except that cut the mint by 50% and used a yogurt & shredded cucumber dressing on the buns. They'd be a little dry w/o something on the bun besides the burger & peppers. Served with the great CL lemon orzo salad, which gives you another carb and lots of tasty vegetables.
I love these! Quick and easy to make. I have changed it up at times and made them into meatballs instead of the patties, as I've also had a hard time keeping them together. When I do that I make a cucumber/dill/feta/sour cream sauce that complements it very well.
i was very pleased with this recipe and would definitely make it again. it was full of flavor. i don't like feta so i substituted mozzarella and used about half the onions the recipe called for. i also made pesto and topped the burgers with it. it hit the spot!
My husband and I loved these. I used a bit less onion and mint, and Panko bread crumbs (all I had in the house). I didn't have roasted peppers, so I used a pepper-eggplant-garlic spread from Trader Joe's. Delicious. I'm serving them again tonight for guests.
