I like to make these Greek burger patties with ground turkey, but there are many ways to make them. You can use ground chicken, ground lamb or if you prefer beef burgers, you can use ground beef.
I make my own seasoning blend with dried parsley, dried oregano and crushed red pepper. If you prefer, you can use a simple Greek seasoning blend. You can also use fresh herbs. To make these burgers a little healthier, mix fresh spinach into the mixture before cooking.
Let’s make some Greek Turkey Burgers!
Step 1: Mix the ingredients
First, add ground turkey, onion, feta, egg, pork rinds, dried parsley, dried oregano, and crushed red pepper to a large mixing bowl. Then, mix until thoroughly combined.
Step 2: Form the patties
Next, form the mixture into six 5oz patties. I wet my hands to help the mixture not stick to them.
You can eyeball the size of the patties but I use a scale to ensure even cooking. 5oz patties are medium sized, to make large patties use a bit more of the mixture for each burger.
Step 3: Grill the patties
Then, heat a greased grill pan or grill over medium heat. Once hot, add the burgers to the grill or pan. Cook the burgers for 7 minutes per side on an uncovered pan or open grill.
Check that the Greek burgers are cooked through with a thermometer. They are fully cooked when the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. Finally, allow to cool slightly and enjoy!
How long will these ground turkey burgers keep in the fridge?
Once prepared, store these Greek turkey burgers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat in a toasted oven, oven, stovetop or microwave.
Can I freeze these turkey feta burgers?
Yes! You can freeze these keto turkey burgers and defrost later. They are perfect for a freezer meal prep session.
The best way to do this would be to mix the ingredients together, form into patties and freeze prior to cooking the patties. Then, defrost and cook as needed.
