Feta Cheese Turkey Burger Recipe

Feta Cheese Turkey Burger w/ Hummus and Spinach

A much healthier alternative to the infamous quarter pounder with cheese you can get from McDonald’s. It’s no secret that McDonald’s food is HORRIBLE for you. This healthy alternative has much fewer calories and is a good source of the different nutrients you need in your daily diet.

Now I don’t know about you but when I eat Mickey D’s I bloat up like one of those floats at the thanksgiving day parade. McDonald’s is highly indigestible with no nutritional value. And you can never really be 100% sure what’s in their burgers! When you cook your own food at home you can take account of every nutrient you are putting into your body. As well as choose the right ingredients for a clean and healthy lifestyle.

Feta Cheese Turkey Burger w/ Hummus and Spinach

Ingredients:

  • 4oz- Lean Ground Turkey – 160cal
  • 1 tsp- Oregano
  • 1 tsp- Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp- Onion Powder
  • 2 tbsp- Fat Free Feta Cheese – 35cal
  • Cooking Spray – 2cal
  • 1 tbsp- Hummus – 35cal
  • 4-5 leaves- Spinach – 3cal
  • Whole Wheat Hamburger Bun – 130cal

-In a medium sized bowl mix together the first 4 ingredients. 4oz of turkey for each burger. After you’ve mixed in all your spices evenly start to mix in half of the feta cheese leaving the rest for garnish.

-Roll together in your hands the mixed ingredients and flatten to give the shape of a burger. Lightly spray your pan with cooking spray. On medium heat cook your patties for about 5 minutes on both sides.

-Spread half of your tablespoon serving of hummus on bottom bun and the other half on the top bun. Place burger on bottom bun and add the rest of your feta cheese on to the burger. Top your burger with the leaves of spinach as well as your bun and you’re ready to eat!

This burger goes great with sweet potatoes fries which are also a healthier alternative to the kind of fries you find at McDonald’s!
