Turkey Feta Burgers are a great grilling summer treat or a great skillet-cooked burger anytime of year!
My Great Aunt Fran had us over for a lovely lunch and conversation a few weeks ago. It’s always fun to go over there, because I learn so much from her. She’s the one that really got me to start sewing. She raised six kids, and was a Home Economics Teacher for twenty-five years! She has a lot of tricks up her sleeves for frugal living and tasty treats.
For the main course of our lunch Aunt Fran served a Turkey Spanakopita Burger. I had to look Spanakopita up in the dictionary because I had no idea what that meant. Spanakopita is a Greek pie made of phyllo (pastry that is flaky and layered) that consists of feta cheese, spinach and seasonings. I called it a turkey feta burger because that’s what it is, too, and ours wasn’t baked in a phyllo.
The Verdict: What a great mix of flavors. We have made this at home and served with our own guests, too. I like serving it wrapped in lettuce and covered with a slice of raw milk cheese best. The kids like to add mustard to it. Thanks Aunt Fran, for sharing!!!
