Turkey Burgers with Basil & Feta w/ Cabbage-Radish Slaw

13 Aug


I used the basil that was in my HighCross Farm CSA box and made the most incredible turkey burgers EVER! 

I also decided to make a low-cal cole slaw using the awesome head of cabbage that was in my CSA box. 


Turkey Burgers with Basil and Feta

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 oz feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 c plain bread crumbs
  • A handful of basil chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ground black pepper to taste

Mix all together in a bowl and form into four 4 oz patties.  I grilled mine on the stove top using cooking spray to save calories.  You can cook them on the grill, pan fry or even bake these if you like. 

Put on a whole wheat bun with a little Dijon mustard and you will be in heaven…trust me.


They come out so moist.  You will want to eat all four. 

Cabbage-Radish Slaw

  • 4 c shredded cabbage
  • 3-4 radishes, cut into match sticks or grated
  • 1 small shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • S & P to taste
  • 1-1.5 tablespoon cider vinegar

Whisk the sour cream, vinegar, shallot, sugar and S & P and pour over cabbage and radish.  Easy as that! 

Its a good combination of sweet and tart.  I love that it’s not heavy or overly creamy like most cole slaws tend to be. 

If you wanted you could throw in a little celery seed.

I could eat this every day.

    Oooh, thanks! This was very good, and easy! It was a great way to use up some ground turkey in my freezer.
    I can’t wait to try that omelet too!
