Greek Style Turkey Burgers

A view of our living room set-up for dinner. We love our TV trays. That way we can watch The Simpsons while we eat. :-)

I have a TON of fresh dill that I am trying to use up (people are probably getting sick of me putting dill in all the food I serve). This evening dill is featured in Greek style turkey burgers. When I make turkey burgers I add random stuff from my refrigerator. These particular turkey burgers have feta, dill, garlic, kalamata olives, olive oil, salt and pepper. I didn't use a recipe so the amounts are rough estimates.

Tonight was my first ever attempt at roasting an artichoke. Seemed fairly easy according to the articles I read. The chopping and pruning at the beginning kind of sucked but other than that the prep was fairly painless. I put the artichoke in the oven thinking I had done everything right...HA! Well, to my surprise, I had not! I didn't remove the furry, hairy stuff in the middle of the artichoke!! OOPS! Needless to say, we couldn't eat the artichoke. I was a bit bummed, but I have to admit, it was rather funny. Luckily, I had a zucchini in the refrigerator that I sliced up and sauteed.

Even though I lost the artichoke, the turkey burgers turned out wonderfully. I used the super low fat ground turkey so I added lots of olive oil for fat.

1 lb. ground turkey

3 - 4 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled

1/4 cup kalamata olives, pitted and chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

Fresh dill



Combine all ingredients in large mixing bowl; form into burger shaped patties. Grill burgers on medium heat for 10-12 minutes (roughly 6 minutes/side). Serve with fresh spinach and tomatoes.
