Turkey Burger with Feta Cheese and Grilled Onions

There’s nothing like a day off from work. I’m not talking about weekends, I’m talking about a day off during the middle of the week when everyone else is working. Occasionally I take a day or two off to handle things around the house – cooking, cleaning, errands etc. The best part of a day off is being able to cook whatever I want – especially things that hubby won’t eat. Case in point – this grilled turkey burger with a big fat slab of grilled onions. I love turkey burgers – much better than hamburgers. It doesn’t take much to make them taste great and I don’t feel like they’re clogging my arteries like a cow burger.

A Few Things To Note

  • Grilling the onions makes them nice and sweet but be careful not to burn them.
  • I fixed this in a grill pan on the stove but you could also do them on the grill.
  • I prefer 93/7 ground turkey because it’s not as dry as 99% fat free turkey so I don’t have to worry about adding fillers to keep it moist.
  • I didn’t add any salt to these because feta is really salty but feel free to salt to taste.
  • Make sure to cook these all the way through. Half cooked poultry is an trip to the ER waiting to happen.
