The Greek-inspired combo of crumbled feta cheese, red onion and dill makes the meat flavorful and keeps it moist.
You could serve this burger without any condiment, but a dollop of tzatziki or squirt of Sriracha would cool it down or spice it up nicely.
1/2 medium red onion
2 small cloves garlic
4 stems fresh dill
450-650 g ground turkey
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
4 whole-grain hamburger buns
Green-leaf lettuce leaves, for serving
Heat a grill pan or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.
Meanwhile, cut the red onion into thin slices, reserving 4 of them for serving.
Finely chop the remaining red onion slices, garlic and dill; together is okay.
Transfer to a mixing bowl, then add the ground turkey, salt, pepper and feta.
Grease the palms of your clean hands with a light coating of cooking oil spray, then use your hands to gently blend the mixture. Form into 4 equal patties that are 3/4- to 1-inch thick.
Grease both sides of each patty lightly with cooking oil spray, then place in the pan.
Cook for about 4 minutes on each side, nicely browning the exterior and making sure the interior is cooked through (165 degrees on an instant-read thermometer).
While the burgers are cooking, you can toast the buns and gather condiments.
Place lettuce leaves on each bottom bun, then the burgers.
Put a slice of red onion on each burger, then finish with the top buns. Serve warm, with condiments.
