Why I Made These Mediterranean Turkey Burgers

I love big flavors. B I G. I also really appreciate Mediterranean taste combinations…sometimes I think I was born in the wrong part of the world.

The sun-dried tomatoes, brininess from the olives, and zingy oregano make this recipe is a nice departure from the boring old hamburger.

What Kind of Turkey to Use for Turkey Burgers

Ground turkey breast can be notoriously dry, so in these Mediterranean Turkey Burgers, I opt for the 93% lean meat instead of the 99%. Trust me, the little bit of extra fat keeps it moister, and the flavor is so much better.

They key to adding veggies into a burger like this is to chop everything very very small so. If you don’t, big chunks of veggies will steam inside the burgers, and the patty is likely to fall apart.

Can You Make This Into Meatballs?

And you could very easily take these Mediterranean Turkey Burgers and roll them into little meatballs instead. If you opt for that, bake in a 375°F oven for about 15 to 20 minutes or until cooked through.
