The Burger: Greek Style

Greek turkey burgers with feta and red pepper
By: Alexa Keeler

Quite a departure from last month’s theme of tradition (where I made homemade souvlaki), this recipe is a modern Greek-inspired take on the burger, with old-style Greek ingredients.

Not only is this dish simple to make with minimal ingredients, it packs a surprising amount of flavour for how unpretentious it is (no Himalayan Salt Brick required).

Let’s begin!

Greek Turkey Burgers
Serves 12-14


2.2 lbs. extra lean ground turkey
2 eggs
3/4 red pepper, chopped very small
4 3 cm cubes of feta cheese, crumbled
3 cloves garlic (garlic lovers feel free to add 2 more)
Salt and pepper to taste


Baby spinach leaves
Cucumber slices
Lemon-Greek yogurt (1/2 cup Greek yogurt mixed with 2 tsp. lemon juice)


Mix all ingredients together and form into small patties. Cook over medium-high heat, covered for most of the time, for eight minutes on each side.

Serve with toppings on crisp ciabatta buns.
