Guest Post: Greek Turkey Burger

Niki from HomeMadeville is sharing an unconventional recipe for a turkey burger with a Greek spin! I do love me some feta cheese! Here it is!

Hi Everyone.  I am so excited to be guest posting for Allyson at Domestic Superhero.  Speaking of super heroes…I want to share my Greek Turkey Burger recipe which is the Hercules of healthy eating.  The ground turkey is seasoned to perfection and paired with accompaniments that pack a punch in every bite.

Greek Turkey Burger with Sweet Potato Fries

Ingredients

For Burger:

1 lb. Ground Turkey

2 Tbsp Tiger Sauce

1/2 tsp Poultry Seasoning

1 tsp Parsley

1/2 tsp Salt 

1 dash Pepper

1 Tbsp Canola Oil for the pan

Accompaniments:

Fresh Spinach

Dried Cranberries

Crumbled Feta

Tzatziki Sauce

Bun

1.  Combine the ground turkey, Tiger Sauce, poultry seasoning, parsley, salt and pepper, then form into 4 patties.  I must say, the Tiger Sauce is the secret ingredient in all the burgers at my house!

 

2.  Heat the canola oil in a cast iron skillet on medium high heat, then carefully add your burgers.   

3.  Continue to cook on medium high until cooked through, about 5 minutes on each side.

4.  Dress your burger with the spinach, cranberries, feta, tatziki and bun.

Since part of my family is gluten free, a gluten-free bun is all that is needed for this meal to work for everyone.  We usually pair with baked sweet potato fries and fresh fruit.  This meal is so easy, we often serve it when we have friends over for dinner.  It seems to be a crowd pleaser, and is perfect on the grill too.

 

I hope you enjoy this healthy and delicious burger that will transform an ordinary dinner into a Mediterranean retreat.  Please come visit me at HomeMadeville and on social media.  I would love to get to know you there.

Lemon Rosemary Iced Teagaritas

Lemon Rosemary Tea-GaritaSQAURE

One of the things I love about summer, is the chance to create tons of interesting cocktails. I love using fresh herbs from the garden, and lately I have been playing with a lot of infused simple syrups. Last week I shared a Basil Simple Syrup, and now in this cocktail I used a lemon rosemary simple syrup. This cocktail is actually super easy to make, because I used the new product by Jose Cuervo, Iced Teagarita! Their new product consists of their classic lime flavored margarita, blended with Jose Cuervo Tequila and premium orange liqueur, then combined with refreshing iced tea- the perfect … ...read more

All opinions are mine alone. #KefirCreations  #CollectiveBias Until I moved to the south, I don’t think I really had a genuinely delicious biscuit that made me proclaim, ‘I love biscuits!’ But after being to a couple real southern restaurants, I learned what a real biscuit was supposed to taste like…fluffy, buttery, light and airy, and most of all delicious.  I have become obsessed with fresh biscuits, and I love making them at home.  If you have made biscuits at home, you probably know there are a … ...read more

Hey everyone, happy Friday! Before I go on, I also want to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my wonderful husband – 31 looks great on you!!  Did you have a good 4th of July?! Ours was pretty low key, but really fun. We went to our city fireworks on Friday night and my 3 year old loved it! It was the first year we took him and he had a blast and really enjoyed the fireworks! I am glad we waited until this point because I know before now he would have been scared of the loud booming noise! Here are some fun pics from our Friday night festivities!     Oh, I also had some DELICIOUS food! … ...read more

How to make Basil Simple Syrup

basil simple syrup square

Basil simple syrup is one of those things that I never thought to make before. I’m not sure why, because I make plenty of basil infused cocktails and love fresh basil. I also have found myself in the grocery store buying bottles of simple syrup.  Simple syrup happens to be the easiest thing to make, and I bet you didn’t know that. Once you make it yourself, there is no turning back. Since last weekend when I made this, I have already made 2 more types; Blueberry Basil Simple Syrup and Rosemary Simple Syrup.  Pretty much any fruit or herb can be turned into an infused simple syrup. … ...read more

Whipped Basil Feta Dip

Whipped-Basil-Feta-Dip-2.jpg

Since starting my garden a few months ago, I’ve had several things growing; tomatoes, zucchinis, bell peppers, sweet peppers, and various herbs including basil.  For some reason unknown to me, whenever I have grown basil in the past, it has always died. I blame it on the heat down here in Georgia, but I really don’t know if that is the case because I see other people’s plants doing extremely well.  So this year I tried to plant it more out of the sun, so it wouldn't be exposed to the sun all day long, which I thought was maybe too long. I think I was right because this year, my basil … ...read more
