Ground turkey 1/2 Pound (I used 94% lean ground turkey)
Crumbled feta cheese 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Chopped basil 2 Tablespoon (fresh)
Worcestershire sauce 1/2 Teaspoon
Salt 1/4 Teaspoon
Black pepper To Taste
Hamburger bun 2
Toppings 50 Gram (red onion, lettuce, tomatoes, condiments, etc)



1. In a mixing bowl, combine ground turkey, feta crumbles, chopped basil, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Mix well.

2. Divide the mixture equally into two half and shape them into patties.

3. Heat up a cast iron skillet over medium flame for a couple of minutes, and place patties in it. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side or until the center of the turkey burger reads 165 degrees F.


4. Place patty on bun and serve it with any accompaniments you want, and enjoy!


Don't make the patties too thick or they will take too long to cook.

Make a small test patty, cook and check to adjust seasoning.

You can also cook patties on the grill.

If you find that the burgers are browning too much before the interior is cooked through, you can put a lid on the pan.
