Turkey, Spinach, Feta Burger With a Olive Mayonnaise

“Simple ingredients make this a quick healthier burger with tons of flavor. The olive mayo gives this a nice change from the average ketchup and mustard toppings. I like just a fresh tomato slice, but you can really add anything you want. I really enjoying use a good onion roll, which even gives more flavor to this burger, but you can use whatever you have on hand. For me ... a good burger bun or roll can make all the difference between just a burger and a GREAT burger.”

  1. Burger -- In a medium size bowl, mix the shallot (grated does make a difference, you get the juice which gives lots of flavor, grate right over the bowl), eggs, garlic, oregano, pepper, feta and mix well. Then slowly add the meat and mix to combine. I add the meat last because you don't want to over mix which can make it tough. Form 8 patties and transfer to a baking sheet and freeze for about 20-30 minutes. They won't freeze, but they will firm up which makes them very easy to cook.
  2. Olive Mayo -- As your burgers are in the freezer, make your olive mayonnaise. To a small bowl or measuring cup, add the chopped olives, olive juice, mayo, lemon juice, pepper and refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Grill -- I like to use a grill pan or a saute pan for these. Spray or brush a little oil on the grill pan or saute pan and heat to medium high. Grill your burgers. Approximately 5 minutes per side until golden brown. Being turkey, I want to make sure the burger is done.
  4. Don't forget to grill the buns along side the burgers.
  5. Serve -- Spread your olive mayo on each side of the toasted bun. Add your burger and top with a fresh tomato slice. Feel free to add any other toppings, but the cheese in the burger has tons of flavor.
