Mediterranean Turkey Burgers with Roasted Red Pepper and Herb Mayonnaise
Today was a very relaxing Sunday for us. The weather finally cooled down a bit and I opened up all the windows to let some fresh air through the house. I don’ t know about you, but days like today are my absolute favorites. We had no where to be, no where to go, the kids were content playing around the house. I was able to be productive with some cleaning and laundry and even was able to sneak a little nap in. I read some of my newest magazines that came in the mail and caught up on some blog surfing.
Today was a good day.
Usually on the weekends we grill. We haven’t in a while and tonight was the perfect night for it weather-wise. I have been wanting to make turkey burgers like this for a while so tonight I poured myself a glass of wine and went to work to create this delicious healthy Mediterranean Turkey Burger.
1.25 ground turkey
1/2 cup sundried tomatoes, chopped
2 cups fresh spinach, chopped
2-3 TB chopped Kalamata olives (if you aren’t an olive fan, just omit)
1/2 small onion, minced
1 tsp greek seasoning
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella (you can use a more if you’d like, I am trying to cut back)
salt and fresh ground pepper
whole wheat pita pockets, cut in half
Roasted Red Pepper and Herb Mayo (recipe below)
In large bowl, combine ground turkey, sundried tomatoes, spinach, olives, onion and seasoning. Gently combine. Add in cheese and gently combine. Form into 6 patties.
Spray both sides of each patty with nonstick spray and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on hot grill or grill pan and cook for approximately 5-6 minutes on each side or until done.
While burgers are cooking, place pitas on top rack of grill to warm up. Cut in half and open immediately after warming.
Serve with roasted red pepper and herb mayo in whole wheat pita pockets.
Roasted Red Pepper and Herb Mayo
1/2 cup light mayo (I use Hellmans)
1 roasted red pepper from jar , chopped small
2 teaspoons fresh flat leaf parsley and oregano, chopped
1/4 tsp greek seasoning
Combine all ingredients in small bowl.
I served these burgers with roasted sweet potato wedges tossed in Montreal Steak seasoning, minced fresh garlic and red pepper flakes.

Hi Aggie, I woke up this morning and checked my reader, and saw this delicious looking meal and instantly had a craving for it all. Guess what we’re having for dinner tonight?
Those turkey burgers look great Aggie! I love the spinach and cheese! I agree this weekend was great grilling weather for those of us in the Sunshine State!
Hi Aggie! It sure does = ) Pita and turkey, anything Mediterranean. YUM! Sorry I missed your last few posts = (
Every time I visit your site I feel so happy and whimsical, I love the new design.
This looks SO GOOD! Nice and healthy, plus delicious. Great combination. I found your blog a few days ago and I love your recipes. BTW, I’m making your Baked Chicken Parmesan tonight and will be posting my results later this week with a link to you. 🙂
Love the mayo, yum. And I don’t have a grill, but could easily do these indoors. Nice!
And yes, I love love Sundays like that. They’re the best. Glad you got to have one. 😉
Looks really nice. Bet I could make these with tempeh, being a vegetarian.
You should be able to get w.w.pastry flour in any grocery stores these days… just check near the “bob mill” flour section. They are normally near that speciality section.
oh my goodness that looks wonderful!!!
i put montreal on my sweet potato fries too– and paprika! so good
have a great night
What a great combination of flavors! They look great-I like that you mixed the spinach right in with the meat.
Aggie your burgers look fabulous. This is just the ticket for nights when we want to relax and not spend a lot of time preparing a huge meal.
I love turkey burgers, I’ll be giving these a try.
what a great meal… i’m not a big turkey burger fan but this one looks reallllly good. maybe something that i would actually have more than one time.
These look so good, Aggie! I am an olive fan, so mine would include them. That roasted red pepper mayo sounds terrific; I’d like that on just about anything! YUM!
Girl Japan! Thanks for stopping by…I’ve been trying to get over to your site but am having trouble…WordPress is asking for login info.
Yum- that looks like a great dinner and sounds like a perfect weekend.
Those Burgers look delicious. What exactly is in Greek Seasoning? I think this might be a turkey burger I could get my husband to eat. Your site is beautiful – I am glad you stopped by to check mine out. Enjoy your yogurt & berries.
