Cooking: 15 minutes
Total: 30 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

  • lbsground turkey,(93% lean)
  • 1tbspgarlic,minced
  • 1tspground cumin
  • 2tspdried oregano
  • cupKalamata olives,finely chopped
  • 3ozfeta cheese,crumbled
  • 1cupspinach,finely chopped and packed fresh
  • pinchsea salt and black pepper
  • Olive oil spray

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 420 degrees F.

  2. Add all the ingredients to a large bowl and mix together thoroughly.

  3. Scoop out a large fistful of meat, roll it into a ball, then flatten it to form a patty around 1½ inches thick. Repeat with the remaining meat to make 5 large patties of equal size.

  4. Once the patties are formed, use your thumb to make a shallow indentation in the middle of each patty to prevent them from forming a dome as they cook.

  5. Set a large oven-safe nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and spray lightly with olive oil. When the skillet is hot, add the patties.

  6. Cook on one side for 3 to 4 minutes, until the edges are brown and seared, then flip the patties over.

  7. Cook for an additional minute, then place the entire skillet in the oven to cook for 9 to 11 minutes or until the internal temperature is 165 degrees F.

  8. Enjoy these as a burger with a toasted whole wheat bun, butter lettuce, cucumber slices, thin red onion slices (optional), sliced tomato, and a little Greek yogurt instead of mayo. Or pair a patty with salad, rice, quinoa, or even roasted vegetables!
