This is an awesome turkey burger with garlic, pesto, feta cheese, and seasoned salt. Even my husband liked it and he typically will only eat traditional burgers!

Wow! These were the BEST turkey burgers I've ever had. To be honest, I was iffy about using a recipe that was new and didn't have a picture but I'm glad I did. I already had all of the ingedients in bulk (and thanks to Costco, it's actually fairly inexpensive for ingredients like Pesto and Feta cheese). I don't have an outdoor grill, but I baked them at about 400 for 10 minutes and then broiled them until they were browned (about 8 minutes). I toasted the buns and topped it with a sauce that I make which is equal parts mayo and dijon mustard mixed with about a teaspoon of fresh garlic and a dash of crushed red pepper. These are the best burgers I've ever had. Thank you SO much for this recipe!

This recipe deserves 5 stars prepared as directed, but I made some changes when I cooked it for friends. This is my best reviewed food item. I replace a little more than half the bread crumbs with Italian bread crumbs. I use a little less feta. I don't add the extra salt while cooking. And the two things I force on anyone eating this are: 1) Must use english muffins for bread 2) Must top with chopped dried cranberries. This is easily my favorite turkey burger, and some of my friends prefer this recipe to beef.

These burgers were great with some adjustments. First I didn't use the feta. I know the recipe said Mediterranean-Style burger. I make Mediterranean burgers. They are made with feta cheese, olives, and tzatziki sauce. These are Pesto burgers. After they were done, I put on Provolone cheese and smeared pesto on a toasted bun. Garnished with boston lettuce and tomatoes. Wonderful.
