Greek Turkey Burgers

Burgers are a staple at my house, we end up having them at least once or twice a week.  Recently, I’ve been trying to branch out and spice up my burgers a little more than having the same turkey burger with worcestershire sauce and either havarti or pepper jack cheese on top by making bacon cheddar stuffed burgers, thai tuna burgers, and spinach artichoke stuffed burgers which were both amazing! Seriously, go check those out! I took a bit of a different approach with this one, instead of having the ingredients stuffed in the middle, I mixed everything right into the turkey burger itself!

Now this burger was something that I had been so excited to make for a while since I got a can of sundried tomatoes a while back.  It only seemed natural to combine them with feta and spinach in this incredible turkey burger.  Instead of cheese on top, there is a creamy tzatziki sauce which brings the whole burger together! It really is a fun Greek spin on a grilled turkey burger recipe!

Can you make turkey burgers in the oven?

Yes, if you want to make turkey burgers in the oven, preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Then you are going to line a sheet pan with aluminum foil or spray it with non-stick spray.  Next, place the patties on the sheet pan and bake them for 15 minutes before flipping them and baking another 15 minutes.  The internal temperature should be 165 degrees.

This recipe calls for oregano but some other popular seasonings for turkey burgers include worcestershire sauce (my favorite thing to add to a turkey burger!), red pepper flakes, chili powder, etc.

Other tips and tricks on this greek turkey burgers recipe

  • Mixing the feta, sundried tomatoes, and spinach right into the turkey burger is a great way to get flavor in every bite but if you don’t want to deal with that, you can just put those ingredients on top of the burger instead!
  • My favorite kind of bun to use for a turkey burger is a brioche bun! I love how light and fluffy they are to bite into.

    My husband and I have been trying to eat less red meat so turkey burgers have been our go-to when we crave burgers. Typically we find turkey burgers to be a little bland but not this one. I just loved the ingredients you used, they added so much flavor. Great recipe, thank you!
