Our friend Alecia was kind enough to share some recipes with us before she left.  This recipe for turkey burgers is great because the dried tomatoes will add some rich flavor.  And both the tomatoes and feta will also add moisture (as long as the burgers aren’t overcooked).  A rich garlic aioli would be a good balance as a sauce but it would add LOTS of fat and calories.  But a plain, Greek yogurt, blended with some chopped, roasted garlic would be a much better choice.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Kosher or sea salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup diced sun-dried tomatoes (if using 99% lean turkey breasts, recommend using sun-dried tomatoes packed in olive oil)
  • 1/2 cup low-fat feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons diced chives or green onions

Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and make into 4 patties. Recommend outdoor grilling or using a George Foreman type grill. Top burgers with your favorite condiments.

Note: Patties can be made ahead of time and frozen.
