Greek Turkey Burgers

  Today’s recipe is for turkey burgers with a Grecian twist.  While the Greek economy may be a little iffy lately, I don’t think anybody is questioning the value of feta.
  Here’s what we’re making:
  This is a recipe I tried in the hopes of stocking up our freezer with easy to thaw and eat meals for the busy semester ahead.  It would have been successful in that…except for cats.
  The recipe made around 11 burger patties.  After we were done eating, the Mr. put the extra patties on a cookie sheet to freeze individually and took them to our chest freezer.  Last night he took them out to be bagged.  G distracted him and he walked away, leaving the cookie sheet on our workbench.  The cats ate every. single. burger.
  SO, if you have any doubt about how good these are; I like them, the Mr. likes them, G likes them and the cats REALLY like them.
  Here’s what you need:

1 lb. ground turkey
1 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup chopped Kalamata olives
2 tsp dried Italian seasoning
1/4 cup finely minced onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 clove garlic, finely minced
freshly ground black pepper to taste

  The original directions are linked to below the picture above.  I followed them pretty closely, but it being the middle of winter here in Michigan, we obviously didn’t use the grill.  Everything in the list above gets mixed together in a bowl and then formed into patties.  We pan fried the burgers and topped them with Greek salad dressing and mayo.

  I am so angry at the cats you guys.  As if it wasn’t bad enough that G steals my food every time I eat, now my critters are eating my food before I can even prep it?

  Somebody needs to fess up.  It’s clear there’s an orchestrated effort to starve me to death.
