1-1/2 Lbs. Lean Ground Turkey
1/4 C. Finely Chopped Pimento Stuffed Green Olives
1/4 C. Finely Chopped Large Black Olives
1/4 C. Finely Chopped Kalamata Olives
3/4 C. Finely Chopped Feta Cheese
1/2 t. Dried Oregano

1 T. Olive Oil
2 T. Softened Salted Butter
6 Split Kaiser Rolls
Toppings and Garnishes:
6 Slices Medium Thick Havarti Cheese
12 Thin Tomato slices
6 Romaine Lettuce Leaves
To Cook Burgers;
Combine all ingredients for burgers. Mix to just combine all ingredients, do not over mix. Form into 6 equally sized patties, place on plate and brush each patty top with olive oil. Cover with plastic wrap or foil and chill for 30 minutes.
Preheat gas grill for medium high heat.
Lightly butter each half of Kaiser rolls.
Remove burger patties from refrigerator. Place each patty on grill oiled side down. Oil other sides of patties. Cook for approximately 6 minutes on each side, flipping once. Just before burgers are done, put cheese slices on burgers to melt. Put buttered buns on grill to toast.
To Assemble Burgers:
Put toasted bun bottom on plate and layer with one slice of lettuce, 2 slices of tomato and the cheese topped burger patty. Add bun tops and serve.
Makes 6 servings.
The feta cheese makes these burgers moist, and though turkey can sometimes be bland…the olives give plenty of flavor with no need for additional garnish or sauce. These are nicely proportioned burgers which are filling, easy to make and healthy for your family.
