How to make pear feta turkey burgers.
This recipe is so simple and really easy to make. In fact, you’ll be in and out of the kitchen in less than 20 minutes. Impress your family or friends with this tasty, fun, and creative dinner!
First, you are going to want to get a large mixing bowl out and add in your lean ground turkey. Next, add in your finely chopped baby spinach, diced shallots, dijon mustard, garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper. Mix together with clean hands until everything is fully combined.
Next, add in the finely cubed pear and crumbled feat. Gently fold in with your hands until fully combined and form 4 to 5 equal-sized patties. I used about a 1/2 of meat for each patty.
Now it is time to cook them! Add avocado or olive oil to a non-stick skillet and heat to medium. Add in your turkey burgers and cook for 5 to 6 minutes on the first side. Flip and cook for another 5 to 6 minutes on the second side. If you are using an outside grill, heat the grill to medium and cook burgers for 4 to 5 minutes on each side.
Once your healthy turkey burgers are done cooking, it is time to assemble your burgers with toppings and buns of choice. I love using baby gem lettuce, sliced tomato, extra pear slices, some tzatziki, or even some extra Dijon mustard. You can even add ketchup if that is what you prefer. Or, add on top of a loaded salad!
