Is there anything that says "Summer" more than a burger hot off the grill? Burgers, sun, and good times with friends and family are what summer is all about.  When families go to Fourth of July picnics or grill out, it is fun to make delicious foods that help to celebrate summer.  This Greek Turkey Burger recipe is a great addition to your summer grilling, and uses fresh ingredients.

Greek Turkey Burger Recipe

I love a good burger.  There is no denying that.  It's my go-to meal when I need to get dinner on the table in a hurry.  One of my favorite ways to add variety to burgers is by trying new combinations of toppings and mixed-in ingredients.  These turkey burgers were a new spin on the classic hamburger and they were a huge hit in our house.  (One that we'll be making again very soon!) 

I found a bunch of recipes on Martin’s Savory Recipe Center and this American Gobbler Burger  really stood out to me.  It's a Greek-style turkey burger with a juicy cucumber sauce topping and basil and tomato feta that is mixed right into the ground turkey.  Anytime cheese is mixed into the burger meat, it's a win in my book! The flavored feta adds a nice pop of taste, but what really makes this turkey burger flavorful is the cucumber sauce.  It's an easy sauce to whip up. (So easy in fact, that my two year old helped me make it!) The American Gobbler Burger is a Greek turkey burger that's easy to prepare in an affordable way!

There were so many recipes at Martin's Food Markets that look amazing.  They are affordable and easy to prepare recipes, and easy way to give variety to your guests/family at a Fourth of July picnic or anytime!  I love how Martin's Food Markets makes it easy to plan out a Fourth of July picnic.  In fact, the planning is done for you with quality food.  I found so many recipes that I want to try this summer.  The ingredients and products are easily accessible and affordable which is perfect for busy, big families, like mine.  

Anytime a shopping trip is made easier when there are four kids aged 8 and under in tow, it makes this mama smile.  When we hit the grocery store, I usually have all four attached in some variety to the shopping cart so it can be a bit of a spectacle to see us troop through the produce aisles. And, when you've got four kids, affordable foods is a must, making Martin's Food Market the perfect place for us!

(Yummy Greek-style Turkey Burger)

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 3/4 cup crumbled basil and tomato feta cheese, divided

Mix the ranch dressing and chopped cucumber in a bowl and place to the side.

My two year old helped me mix up the cucumber sauce.  We love cooking together. Cooking with kids is such a great way to add learning into the kitchen as they read and follow recipes, problem solve, motor plan, and build executive functioning skills.  I think that getting the kids involved in making the foods that they eat really encourages them to try new things like these turkey burgers.  

Combine the ground turkey with 1/2 cup feta cheese and black pepper. Shape into four 4-oz. patties and flatten slightly.

Grill or broil turkey burgers, using direct medium heat, 6 to 8 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches 165ºF.


How amazing does that crumbled basil and tomato feta cheese look?

Meanwhile, heat onion rolls only until warm. For each burger, spread 2 tablespoons sauce on each roll. Place burgers on rolls and top each with about 1 tablespoon of feta cheese.

Top the burger with slivered red onions and lettuce.  And enjoy!
