Family friendly frugal meals – Turkey and feta burgers….

This week my meal plan is super easy seeing as I’m away on holiday.  I promised in my last meal plan to share a few recipes with you though so here’s the first one – Turkey and feta burgers.

I’ve start using turkey a lot more in my cooking as it’s so economical and everyone really enjoys it.  This is a recipe that I made up initially when some of the kids friends came round and I don’t have much in.  They sat and ate it in the garden and all came back for more so it can’t be bad, can it?

To make 8 small burgers you need:
500g turkey mince
Feta cheese – I used about 75g but you can add more or less to taste
Mixed herbs to taste

To serve:
Pitta bread
Some more feta cheese to sprinkle on
Cous cous

As you know I like simple recipes 😉

  1. For want of a more appropriate technical term, I’m going to use my favourite cooking word – mush.  You need to mush up the turkey mince with the crumbled feta cheese and the mixed herbs.  I’ve just used dried mixed herbs and a tablespoon worked great for me but as with the feta, you can add more or less.
  2. Form the mix into 8 burgers, making sure you that you squish the mixture together really firmly so it doesn’t break apart during cooking.  You can add egg to bind it if you prefer but I like it without.
  3. Grill on a medium heat, turning regularly until they’re all cooked through.
  4. I like to serve them in pitta breads with some more feta cheese crumbled on them and some cous cous on the side.

Lean on Turkey is all about inspiring families to use more fresh turkey in their weekly meals. I’m really surprised at at how good value the turkey was and how easy it is too cook.  It’s also high in protein, low in saturated fat and a good source of natural vitamins and minerals.  For more fresh turkey recipes visit
