Spinach & Feta Turkey Burger + Feta Fries

I’d definitely say I’m a foodie – I love eating out and trying new restaurants – but I secretly like playing chef at home. The kitchen is everything at home and I’ve actually picked my last three apartments because of the kitchen! It’s funny because I’m actually really self conscious about my cooking so you know I really care about you if I cook for you. I get the majority of my recipes from Pinterest but I do have a few cookbooks at home – like the Greek cookbook I pulled this tzatziki recipe from.

 

My latest experiment were these Spinach & Feta Turkey Burgers and Feta Fries. I made enough with this recipe to have lunch at work for a few days! Next time I redo these, I’d definitely add more salt to the burgers and less garlic to the tzatziki. The brioche buns I just got from my local Whole Foods.

 

Spinach & Feta Turkey Burger

 

  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 oz feta cheese
  • 1/4 C chopped spinach
  • 1 lb ground turkey

 

  1. Mix eggs, garlic, feta cheese,k spinach, and turkey until well combined; form into 5 patties
  2. Pan fry until cooked or grill 15 – 20 min

 

I might have cut the fries a little thin because I like my fries crispy, but I kind of wished that I cut them thicker. That or just deep fried them like a fatty!

 

Feta Fries

 

  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1 potato
  • black pepper
  • 1/8 C olive oil
  • 1/8 C feta

 

  1. Preheat oven to 400F
  2. Peel potatoes and cut into fries
  3. Add potatoes, olive oil, garlic powder, and oregano
  4. Mix until fries are well coated
  5. Lay evenly on baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes
  6. Flip fries, place back in oven and bake for 10 min
  7. Remove and sprinkle with feta

 

The recipe I used for Tzatziki I got from this recipe book I bought at a bookstore in Santorini. I thought Tzatziki was a sauce, but it’s actually listed under “Salads”! Either way, I love me some tzatziki!

 

 

Tzatziki

 

  • 8 oz greek yogurt

  2. Mix yogurt and cucumber in a bowl, add garlic
  3. Pour in olive oil and vinegar alternating mixing with a mixer
  4. Season to taste and serve
