Pinterest Test – Turkey Burgers

Posted January 8, 2015 by Kathy in Pinterest Test / 0 Comments

I am a huge fan of Pinterest.  It is so addictive and I can spend hours on there pinning everything that catches my eye.  On my personal account I have created 68 boards, 11 are for my blog or books (I recently created an account for my blog).  But the other 57 are boards for recipes, holidays (for decorating & craft ideas), fashion, and more.  I even have boards for my favorite shows (Outlander, Spartacus, The Vampire Diaries and True Blood).  My account is crazy but I can’t help it! So I’m finally going to put use to all the pins I have and share them on my blog.  This idea came to me when my daughter, Tyler, started printing out recipes for us to try.  We had fun cooking together so I thought it would be a great idea to add this to my blog.  This is a way to include my daughters on my blog and have fun trying out new things.  This new blog feature will include recipes, beauty tips, crafts, etc. (you name it – I most likely pinned it!).

 

This Week’s Pin is:

Turkey Burgers

Ingredients:
7 oz. plain greek yogurt
1 medium fresh lemon
¼ tsp minced garlic
¼ tsp dried dill
1.25 lb. ground turkey
6 halves sun dried tomatoes
1 medium red onion
2 oz. frozen spinach
¼ cup crumbled feta
1 tsp dried oregano
½ tsp minced garlic
⅓ cup bread crumbs
1 lg. egg
1 med. cucumber
6 hamburger buns
to taste salt and pepper

Instructions:
Prepare the yogurt sauce by combining the yogurt, ¼ tsp minced garlic, dry dill, juice of half the lemon and a dash of salt. Stir everything to combine and then refrigerate to allow the flavors to blend while you make the burgers.
Thaw the frozen spinach and squeeze out as much moisture as possible. Roughly chop the spinach to prevent long stringy pieces. Also chop the sun dried tomatoes and ¼ of the red onion.
In a bowl combine the ground turkey with the spinach, sun dried tomatoes, red onion, feta, ½ tsp minced garlic, dried oregano, egg, bread crumbs, ½ tsp of salt and some freshly ground pepper. Stir everything until it is evenly combined. Shape the mixture into six patties.
Cook the burgers on a counter top grill, a non-stick skillet or over open flame. Spread the yogurt sauce on both sides of a bun, add a warm burger and top with thin slices of red onion and cucumber.

Final Verdict:

I loved it.  My family thought it was ok. Next time I would make a smaller batch of this just for me.

I decided not to use the frozen spinach since my youngest daughter would have picked it out of the meat (she has done this before).  Also since I want to lose weight I ate the burger without the bun and added some slices of avocado.  This tasted great!
