These Spicy Turkey Feta Burgers are healthy, juicy, and full of harmonious flavors, like jalapeno, garlic, and feta. They are an ideal main course at your next BBQ.
Summertime always takes me back to my childhood/teenage years, and days spent floating the river in small town Montana. We would sit on tubes, drink soda ;), and make our tan lines more prominent. It was the ultimate ‘summer of no responsibility’ activity.
Afterwards, we would pack six to seven people in my best friend’s Volkswagon Bug and head back to town. We traded our parents’ barbeque schedules and would decide who’s dinner we would crash because floating the river all day is tough work and requires some burgers and corn on the cob.
If I had to estimate, I would say my dad barbequed 4-5 nights a week in the summer. It was a relief for my mom and us kids. Burgers on the grill meant fewer dishes to wash.
Not to put my dad’s grilling skills down, but he made pretty plain burgers. On the rare occasion, he would surprise us with cheese and onion stuffed burgers. After three months of barbecued meat, a plain old burger can get a little boring, even for the girl who LOVES hamburgers.
Now that I’m an adult and have responsibilities during the summer months, I really appreciate barbecues. It creates less of a mess, and to be honest, Chris does the majority of the grilling. I can’t say I’m a grill master by any means.
These grilled Spicy Turkey Feta Burgers were a lovely change from the typical ketchup and mustard smeared patties. You can adjust the amount of heat by cutting out or adding in more jalapenos and rep pepper flakes. You could even cut out the red pepper flakes completely and replace the jalapenos with mild green chiles if you don’t like spicy food at all.
