Arugula Feta Turkey Burgers

Oh my goodness…these Arugula Feta Turkey Burgers are my new favorite!! Ever since I went to Colorado this summer and discovered the Veggie burger, I have been on a quest for eating anything BUT your typical ground meat burger.  I’m up for all of the different kinds of meat and condiment combinations out there. 
On a blog called Eat.Live.Run. , I discovered a recipe for these delicious and healthy turkey burgers.  I am a huge fan of turkey and ever since high school I have packed myself a turkey and spinach sandwich for school everyday.  Well, now that I’ve found these turkey burgers, I grill up 4 to 5 burgers, freeze them and have a whole week’s worth of lunches ready for the week in less than 10 minutes!  
As you know, I am a huge fan of Greek food, in particular hummus, red onions, and FETA cheese!  I cannot get enough of it, so with these turkey burgers I can incorporate all my favorites in just one sandwich.  These burgers are moist, juicy, and flavorful from the feta, and pair perfectly well with extra arugula or spinach and a red onion sliced on top.  Hummus coats the Oroweat Sandwich Thin perfectly for my turkey burger and is full of healthy fats and proteins for a complete meal. 
Let me know what you think of these!  My husband never tried them because I didn’t give him the chance.  He is country boy, and likes his meat that way it should be (he won’t let you alter the classic “American hamburger”).  He also hates Feta cheese… he has no clue what good food he is missing!  Enjoy!
Combine feta, egg, arugula, and turkey together in large bowl.

Grill over medium-high heat on the stove for 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through.

Serve on a toasted Oroweat Sandwich Thin, sliced red onion, arugula, and extra Feta cheese.
Take a big bite and enjoy!
