Mediterranean Turkey Burger

Did you know burgers are in the top, if not #1 spot, for most popular food in America? I think we can attribute fast food chains for a big part of that number. BUT they do also provide such a blank canvas for creativity. As much as I love a juicy burger dripping with cheese, bacon, sauce and all that goodness... I can’t eat it all the time and still chase my goals.


This turkey burger is the perfect way to step up your burger game and try something totally different … plus you can feel good about eating it. Topped with crisp veggies, sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese and a tangy yogurt sauce give this burger a refreshing Mediterranean flavor in every bite.
