Goin' Greek!

     Today we re-visited an old favorite- Greek Turkey Burgers.  The Tomato Feta relish is really what makes this dish.  The burgers by themselves are pretty bland- but together, its a dynamite combo!   

Greek Turkey Burgers
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 pound ground turkey
1/3 c. whole wheat bread crumbs (toast, cool & crumble)
1 Tbs buttermilk or sour milk
2 tsps Italian seasoning
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 medium tomato diced
1/2 cucumber diced
1/2 cup feta cheese crumbled
salt and pepper to taste

1) In mixing bowl combine the egg, turkey, crumbs, buttermilk, Italian seasoning and garlic powder.  With clean hands, mush together and form into 4 patties. Salt and pepper to taste.
2) In another smaller bowl, combine tomato, cucumber and feta.  Mix and refrigerate.
3) Preheat outside grill or oven broiler.
4) Grill turkey patties- about 5 minutes on each side.  Turkey should be cooked through and not pink.  Serve with tomato feta relish on top.
