Things I’ve been craving lately: #1 CHEESEBURGERS. #2 is Greek food so here we are with it’s love child, isn’t it beautiful? These Feta Stuffed Turkey Burgers are the perfect quick weeknight meal that won’t leave you hungry 🙌🏼 Although I could have used some ground beef or lamb for this recipe, I chose turkey because I’ve been going a little over board on the red meat lately (I don’t know what it is but I’ve been craving it like no other). Try it out with whatever ground meat of your choice and omit the feta for a Whole30 meal! I promise you are going to LOVE this one 🍔
Feta Stuffed Turkey Burgers
- 1 lb ground turkey or beed
- 1 egg
- 1/4 red onion minced
- 1 clove garlic minced

In a large bowl combine the following ingredients with your hands: ground meat, red onion, garlic, fresh basil, egg, and salt, pepper and dried oregano.
Form the meat into a patty, add about 1/2 tbsp crumbled feta cheese to the center and then fold it like a taco and reform the patty so the cheese is in the middle.
Cook on medium heat in @chosenfoods avocado oil for about 6-7 minutes each side.
Serve on sweet potato buns - Baked at 400 degrees for 10 minutes each side, coated in avocado oil and seasoned with @traderjoes everything but the bagel seasoning). Finish them on broil for 1-2 minutes to get them extra crispy!
