Feta Turkey Burgers, October 6, 2015

Tuesday night, I made feta turkey burgers and served them with veggies, yogurt dip, and kettle chips. It was a very simple and very yummy dinner!

Feta Turkey Burgers
1 lb. ground turkey breast (chicken is fine, as well as beef)
1 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Salt & pepper
4 oz. crumbled feta
Leaf or romaine lettuce
Sliced kalamata olives

Mix turkey, seasonings, and feta. Form into patties, making sure feta is mostly tucked into the meat, rather than jutting out in big hunks. Cook through until nicely browned, using either a grill, broiler, or skillet coated with cooking spray. Serve in pitas with lettuce and olives. The yogurt dip I made for the veggies turned out to be stellar with the burgers. Serves 4.

Yogurt Dip
1 c. Greek yogurt (0% fat is just dandy for this, but use a fuller fat version if you wish)
1 jalapeƱo, seeded, deveined, and chopped (add another, if you like spicy)
A big pinch of coriander
A medium pinch of cumin
A wee pinch of ground fennel seeds
1 shallot, chopped
A handful of mint, chopped
A handful of parsley, chopped
Several peanuts, chopped
A splash of key lime juice
A splash of olive oil, if desired

Mix together, either by hand, for a chunkier dip, or in a food processor/blender, for a smooth dip.
