Bun-less Turkey Burger with Feta and Mint and Cucumber Slaw

I have discovered a new found love of feta cheese and pretty much can’t stop eating it. This love is a stark contrast to the first time I ever tried feta, which was in 7th grade at my friend Faye’s house. We were grabbing an after school snack and were standing in her kitchen when she told me must try this crumbly looking cheese. She opened up the container and I took a piece and thought I just ate someone’s smelly gym socks. It’s a true and odd story especially since feta typically isn’t very pungent, but boy how a food memory can take you back! bunless turkey burger feta oregano cucumber slaw www.keystothecucina.com 1 bunless turkey burger feta oregano cucumber slaw www.keystothecucina.com 3 This recipe is unique in that I didn’t sandwich cheese in the middle of the patties, rather I mixed and creamed the feta with mint and other seasonings and worked in to the meat. The meat will be a little more moist so be sure that when you place them on the grill pan not to mess with them or move them until they get a good sear on them and are ready to flip!
