Food for Fuel: Greek Turkey Burger

September 10, 2008 at 9:34 am | Posted in Food, Nutrition, Poultry, Sandwiches, Wraps, and Burgers, Vegetable Side Dishes | 2 Comments

I like to try a lot of new recipes, so when I repeat a recipe, it’s usually because it’s both easy and really, really good. And that’s how I feel about this one. Turkey burger? Good! Greek food? DELICIOUS!

But in typical Jess fashion, I changed it a little. For simplicities sake, I left out the breadcrumbs and egg white and just mixed everything else with the ground turkey. I also put the feta on top of the patty instead of mixing it inside (in the hopes that the delicious cheesy taste would be more noticeable).

On the side, I had sweet potato fries and Dijon mustard, because one must have fries with a burger. I also made a Greek salad with baby spinach, tomato, cucumber, kalamata olives, and roasted asparagus. I whipped up a quick yogurt dressing to go with it:

  • 1/2 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
  • Heaping teaspoon dried dill
  • 1 clove minced garlic (in retrospect, I would have pressed it for more flavor)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Dash of salt
  • Squirt of lemon juice

Probably used about half the dressing on the salad, so I will get to enjoy the rest later.
