Food for Fuel: Greek Turkey BurgerSeptember 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.
