Day 146 : Greek Turkey Burgers

Just trying to eat a little healthier, while at the same time choosing SIMPLE recipes since lately it seems we are always busy.  Burgers of course fit the bill for simple, but aren’t really always healthy.  We’ve tried numerous turkey burgers over the years…. some good and some not as good, but these were definitely some good ones!  Unlike many turkey burgers these remained nice and moist, and full of flavor.

The recipe just calls for olives, but I suggest kalamata olives in keeping with the Greek flavors.  I would also suggest a Mediterranean Herb flavored feta if you can find it.  I tried cooking some of these in a skillet while I cooked the others on my foreman grill since there isn’t much room on there, but the skillet ones didn’t turn out very well.  I am not sure if it’s just that they were too fat, and had trouble cooking through (which is of course necessary for turkey) or if it’s just something with needing to get used to the new stove, but I ended up having to put them on the foreman to finish off.

I served mine on a regular kaiser bun, with mayo and lettuce.  You could put some onion, tomato, even a slice of cheese…. whatever you like really.
