What’s for Dinner??

Feta stuffed Turkey Burgers with ‘Garlic-y’ Green Beans... that is "What's for Dinner"!


Here’s a quick breakdown:

Turkey Burgers: In a bowl mix ground turkey meat, diced onions, minced garlic, and plain crumbled feta cheese (the more the merrier cheesier). Season the mixture—this is when your own creativity comes into play. Some seasonings I like to use are; Michelle’s Essence (of course) perhaps a touch of red pepper flakes for a little heat and don’t forget salt and pepper. Form the mixture into good sized burgers. Cook burgers in a sauté pan with a splash of vegetable oil over medium heat until they have a nice sear and are cooked all the way through, about 15-20 minutes depending on the size of your burgers.

*Insider Tip* don’t you dare clean that pan after your burgers are done! Use that delicious burger residue to toast your buns. Just place them face down in the left over fat until your buns are nice golden and tasty.

‘Garlic-y’ Green Beans: (I’m seeing a trend here with the ‘garlic-y’ veggies, clearly we love garlic!) Blanch your fresh green beans for 1-2 minutes, drain, and then put directly on ice. Once the cooking has stopped add a splash of olive oil to the pot with a hefty amount of minced garlic. Add your green beans and toss for a couple minutes until they are well coated with that garlic-y goodness. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Finally grab your toasted bun and build your burger with sliced tomatoes, a few spinach leafs and ketchup and mustard (and whatever else your heart desires). Add some of those yummy Garlic-y Green Beans to your plate and you’ve got dinner!
