Greek Turkey Burgers

This is so easy and quick. I prefer using 99% fat free turkey because the burgers stay together so much better. When using 97% fat free turkey, the burgers tend to fall apart pretty easily.

1 slice wheat bread (torn into small pieces)
1 slightly beaten egg white
1 tablespooon milk
1 envelope Italian salad dressing
1 pound lean ground turkey
2-3 oz. crumbled feta cheese
8 Pita bread rounds or sandwich pockets

Combine bread crumbs, egg white, milk and half of the salad dressing mix. Add turkey and cheese and mix well. Shape into 8 oval patties. Place patties on broiler pan. Broil on top rack for 11-13 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking time.

Greek Salsa: Mix together 1 teaspoon olive oil, 2 teaspoons basalmic vinegar, the second half of the Italian salad dressing. Add 1 chopped cucumber and 2 medium tomatoes.

Yield: 8 burgers
WW breakdown:
  • If you use 99% fat free turkey, each patty is 2 points. Using 97% fat free turkey, each patty is 3 points.
  • The salsa is only 1 point for the olive oil so depending on how much you eat, just estimate.
  • The pitas/bread is not included, so calculate based on what type of bread you use. I found some great whole wheat sandwhich pockets that are only 1 point.

I tried a great sausage rigatoni last night from the W.W. website. So good! Should I post it?
