Looking for an easy meal prep option or grilling idea for this weekend? These Greek Turkey Burgers are delicious, juicy, and flavorful! I just love how the flavors of oregano, parsley, garlic, and feta come together! Feel free to toss in a couple tablespoons of fresh mint or dill if that’s your jam ;) 😉 I’ve made these with and without mint, and with and without spinach – both are so good! I could even imagine some chopped kalamata olives or sun-dried tomatoes in these.

Did you know? Turkey meat is rich in B vitamins, including B3 (niacin), B6 (pyridoxine), and B12 (cobalamin). These vitamins (respectively) support energy production and cell communication, the production of amino acids and neurotransmitters, and the formation of DNA and red blood cells! (source)

Greek Turkey or Chicken Burgers

Choosing the best meat

You can use ground turkey like I did, or ground chicken or ground beef. However, whichever meat ground you choose, I don’t recommend using anything leaner than 93% or your burgers will come out rather dry and dense. I also try to buy “organic” or at least “no antibiotics ever” when purchasing poultry. “Organic” poultry must be both naturally raised and free range (having access to pasture). Their feed also has to be certified organic – free of GMOs, pesticides, and chemical fertilizers.

Making the burgers

These burgers get their flavor from finely diced red onion, fresh minced garlic, fresh parsley, dried oregano, and crumbled feta cheese. You can substitute one teaspoon of garlic powder and one tablespoon of dry parsley flakes for the fresh parsley, but the flavor won’t be as fresh and authentic. There are a few optional things you can add in, such as chopped spinach, kalamata olives, or sundried tomatoes, but they are seriously delicious without! If you can’t have dairy, you could swap the dairy feta for some vegan feta, olives or sundried tomatoes.

The burger fixings

I served my burgers on gluten-free hamburger buns (you could also use mini pitas) with cucumber, red onion, and tomato. I also whipped up an easy tzatziki (yogurt cucumber dip) that I’ll post below with the burger recipe. Store-bought tzatziki would be scrumptious too!

Okay, here’s the printable recipe for these Greek Turkey Burgers! I’d love for you to comment below and/or rate this recipe if you try it 🙂
