JUICY TURKEY BURGER - GREEK STYLE

The challenge with a burger made with turkey or chicken is the result can be dry. This is because the meat lacks the right amount of fat compared to beef where 20% fat is ideal. Our recipe, inspired by NYTimes Cooking is to add a bit of our robust extra virgin olive oil. It's healthy and best of all, it makes for a juicy no-beef burger, one that's great for grilling.

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 medium onion, minced (2 tbsp)
1 pound lean ground turkey
1 tbsp Traditional dark balsamic 
1 egg, beaten
3/4 tsp salt
 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper 
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
4 quality hamburger buns

Optional: Add 1/2 tsp Purple Stripe Garlic Powder
1/4 cup tzatziki (store bought or homemade) for topping

DIRECTIONS:

    In medium bowl, place onion, balsamic, salt, pepper and garlic powder if using. Mix together well with fork or fingers. Shape into four balls, then press into 1/2 inch rounds. Heat grill on medium high. Cook for 5 minutes per side. Serve on toasted buns with toppings of choice, including tzatziki. Alternatively, spray non-stick skillet with olive oil and cook on medium, 5 to 6 minutes per side.
