Feta Stuffed Greek Burgers

May21

As my cyber friend and fellow (is there a female version of fellow?) Canadian blogger commented yesterday-“You had me at feta”.  I am feta crazy and was so impressed when I went to a cocktail party of a dear friend of mine who now resides in BC:  Her munchie table was laden with huge white bowls of single items-snaps peas in one, succulent olives in another and the piece de resistence, an enormous platter of columns of feta.  Please check out the amazing blog from yesterday’s commenter.  She is listed on my blog role as “More than Burnt Toast” but if you go there, please come back and visit me again every so often…..

155Yesterday I came upon this recipe that I have not yet had a chance to make but has me salivating so I am sharing with you in case you do not have all of your long weekend groceries purchased.

In a large bowl mix 1.25 lb. of lean ground turkey thighs with 1/4 c bread crumbs, 1/2 c of kalamata olives, pitted & chopped, 1 t lemon zest, 1 T lemon juice, 1 egg, s&p.  Shape the meat mixture into 4 equal balls.  Insert your thumb into the centre of each meatball to create a pocket.  Put 2 oz. of feta in the centre of each and close meat around cheese.  Flatten balls into 4 patties.  Grill 5-7  mins. each side over medium heat, or until internal temp reaches 175 degrees F.  Serve with Greek pita, tzatziki sauce, tomatoes and cucumbers.  Used by permission: Granny’s Poultry

    Once again, you had me at feta:D There is something about earthy and satisfying flavours of feta paired with kalamata olives that would make this burger stand out.
