When you get in a dinner rut of making the same meals over and over, one easy way to change things up is to simply reinvent one of those meals! For today’s recipe, I thought I’d take a classic go-to dinner, hamburgers, and do a little something different with it drawing inspiration from the aisles of my local Grocery Outlet.
I found this 3-lb chub of Jennie-O Fresh Ground Turkey Meat priced at $5.99 at my Grocery Outlet – that works out to just $1.99 per pound!
Grocery Outlet always has amazing cheeses at ridiculously low prices, including Feta. That’s when I got the idea to make Greek-style turkey burgers! I picked up some additional ingredients I thought would work well with this plan including Kalamata olives, sun dried tomatoes, and fresh cucumbers. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 lb Ground Turkey
- 1/4 cup chopped Kalamata olives
- 1/4 cup crumbled Feta cheese
- 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes
- 1 tsp minced garlic (about one clove)
- 1/4 tsp dried oregano
- Salt & pepper, to taste
- Lettuce, tomato, cucumber, Greek-style dressing – to top your burger
- Hamburger buns
Start by mixing the olives, sun dried tomatoes, Feta, garlic, salt, pepper and oregano in a deep bowl.
Next, work in the turkey meat and press into patties using wax paper. Fry them up in a little olive oil in a skillet.
Once your turkey meat is cooked thoroughly, it’s time to build your burger! There are so many ideas here, but I opted for lots of fresh veggies like spinach, tomatoes, and cucumbers – all from my Grocery Outlet! I also happened to have a Greek style dressing on hand so I used that in place of mayonnaise. Delicious! I hope today’s recipe has given you some inspiration to break the dinner rut by making some simple tweaks to a meal you regularly make.
