Last week was all about salads and this week, well, it isn’t. Mostly because I love a good burger as much as the next girl and I’ve realized that I’ve kind of deprived you guys of burger recipes over the past four years. I am so sorry about that. I hope this recipe for Greek turkey burgers with feta will make up for that absence. Plus you can always eat your salad on the side.
There are so many components to food blogging, but writing has always been something that I’ve loved (if I had a penny for every poem or short story that I’ve written…). Once I have an idea for a story, a poem or a blog post, I just go. When I started my blog, I never really thought much about the writing component, to me it was more about the food and the recipes but I’ve slowly realized that writing is one of the things that I love the most about this blogging thing. It’s such a great way to explore different ideas, search for answers and ask questions, both small and big. It’s also the most time consuming part of the process. I’ve found that as the years have gone on, crafting a blog post has started taking longer and longer because it’s almost like putting together a puzzle. The hardest part for me is deciding what topic I feel like writing about. Staring at that blank screen is intimidating. Sometimes I feel like there is just nothing going on up in that brain of mine and I end up sitting for hours, picking at my split ends trying to figure out where to start. I don’t know how those bloggers who blog every single day do it, I would run out of things to say!
This recipe is just your classic burger recipe except I’ve taken the flavours of Greece (thyme, lemon and feta) and thrown them into a turkey burger. You’ll love how the patties are studded with feta, it’s absolutely divine. The ketchup in the patties is my little trick for keeping burgers moist and adding a wee bit of sweetness. Give these Greek turkey burgers with feta a try and let me know what you think.
Enjoy the flavours of Greece in this healthy turkey burger!
