Chile Feta Turkey Burgers
- 1.25 lb ground turkey
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup coconut flour*
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 2 tsp cumin
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp onion powder
- ¼ tsp garlic powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- ½ cup roasted green chiles (canned or fresh), minced and drained
- ½ cup feta cheese, crumbled
First, in a large bowl, combine the turkey, egg, and coconut flour, and mix by hand.
In a separate bowl, mix the chili powder, cumin, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt. Blend these spices with a fork, then add them to the turkey combination. Add the green chiles, add the feta crumbles, and mix this all together until well incorporated, but not over-mixed.
Take baseball-sized portions, form into 1” thick discs, and be sure to make the center thinner than the edges, as the burgers will puff while cooking.
Place on an oiled grill, or under a broiler, for 4-5 minutes each side. Makes 6 4” burgers.
*Most turkey burgers use breadcrumbs as a binder. I’ve discovered that coconut flour is an awesome alternative, and it caters to the growing number of gluten-free eaters!
