I am SO tired of flavorless and dry turkey burgers... which lead to me experiment on how to take my favorite Greek salad flavors and pack them into a juicy turkey burger made from scratch. This recipe is a favorite for meal prepping or batch cooking. I love doubling the recipe and freezing a batch so that I can quickly create a healthy meal on stressful days instead of stress ordering steak and cheese spring rolls with a side of food coma. It's an easy recipe - just mix all the ingredients together and cook the turkey burgers in the oven. As always, these Greek turkey burgers are gluten free and dairy free. I usually serve mine with an iceberg lettuce wrap or over a bed of mixed greens topped with Trader Joe's Garlic Spread, thin red onions, olive tapenade and cucumbers.
Which kitchen tools are needed?
- Cutting board

What to serve with Greek turkey burgers:
