Feta Turkey Burgers

I found a recipe in a magazine and changed the ingredients to use what I had on hand. I changed everything but the turkey, so this recipe is truly an original. This burger is packed with flavor and even my beef eating husband gave it two thumbs up.

Feta Turkey Burgers

1 Tbl. unsalted butter
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1 package (20.8 oz.) lean ground turkey
1 pkg. (3.5 oz.) reduced fat crumbled feta cheese
1.5 Tbl. Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp. black pepper
2 Tbl. light mayonnaise
5 whole-grain hamburger buns
fresh spinach leaves

Melt butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook for 8 minutes or until well browned; set aside.

In a large bowl, combine turkey, 2/3 of the pkg. of feta cheese, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and pepper. Stir until well combined. Form into 5 equal-size patties and flatten.

Spray large skillet and heat to medium heat. Cook burgers about 5-7 minutes per side or until nice and brown.

While burgers are cooking, stir together remaining feta and mayonnaise in a small bowl. Place burgers on buns and top each with some of the onions, cheese and mayo sauce, and spinach leaves. Enjoy!
