Greek-Style Turkey Burgers

  • 1cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1⁄2cup kalamata olive, chopped (I usually use chopped salad olives)
  • 1teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1teaspoon italian seasoning
  • 1teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1teaspoon dried basil (optional)
  • 1teaspoon onion powder
  • 1⁄2teaspoon garlic powder

  • Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Form into 4 patties, then grill.
  • I have served this on regular burger buns with tomatoes and mayo, and on pita with tahini, tomatoes and lettuce.

    I made these last week for my family and they were spectacular!!!! The ingredients were PERFECT!!!! They were a nice change to regular burgers… esp. since I dont eat a lot of red meat. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!!

    These were wonderful — a nice change from the usual bland turkey burger. I used fresh herbs instead of dried and minced onion and garlic instead of the powders. I also used Mediterranean Herb Feta. Pan fried on WW buns was the best!

    Mmmm! We made these last night and they were great! Instead of onion powder we used finely chopped onion which added a bit of fresh flavor along with the fresh parsley we used instead of parsley flakes. Also, since it was rainy, we pan-fried rather than grilled. They were wonderful! I would have maybe added even a bit more feta if I had more, but then again I’m a real cheese fan. We ate them on whole-wheat buns brushed with olive oil and toasted in the oven. They go very well with dijon mustard I found and are quite easy. mmmm….

    Wonderful, wonderful burgers. Even my picky husband thought it was phenominal. I did omit the onion powder because I didn’t have any, and the olives because I don’t like them. Great recipe, I know I’ll make it again.

    Very good, great for a nice, healthy lunch.

    Oh, these are so good! I used the basil, because we love it, and served these on toasted onion rolls. They are full of flavor, very delicious! Thanks for a great recipe, najwa!!

    I can’t get turkey mince here but have sucessfully made this recipe with both chicken and lamb mince. I only use half a cup of feta. A great (and low carb) recipe that is delicious and easy to make. I highly recommend it.

    These are great! If you are a feta cheese lover you must try this recipe. Delicious!

    Awesome!!! I added 1/3 up minced red onion, used fat free feta crumbles, kalamata olives, and used fresh basil and oregano from my herb garden instead of the dried herbs. Amazing! Don’t add salt!! The feta and olives add more than enough. Thank you for sharing!

    A wonderful burger najwa!! My husband and I loved the combination of herbs and spices. We love olives and feta cheese too so this was perfect for us. I served on grilled onion rolls. Thanks for this one.
