Turkey Burgers with Herb Sauce Recipe

A tangy sour cream sauce complements these moist ground turkey burgers stuffed with feta cheese. “It’s not always easy to cook for two,” notes Lily Julow, Lawrenceville, Georgia, “but burgers make it a cinch. This recipe can easily be doubled, too.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1/3 cup sour cream, divided

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 lettuce leaves

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the onion, parsley and 1 tablespoon sour cream. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well. Shape into four thin patties. Top two patties with feta cheese; top with remaining patties and press edges firmly to seal.

"This was the first time I've tried turkey burger in any way. This recipe is a great change of pace from hamburger. It's definety a keeper. I did end up frying it in a pan, as it was some what mussy for Bar Be Que. the sauce was also good, but I did use it sparingly."
