veryyum lofat burgers

These Greek turkey burgs have been a favorite of mine for a few years. They're
so super yummy and um piquant n shit. The recipe's from Cooking Light,
summer '97.

So so yum.

Greek Feta Burgers

1 10-oz pkg frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained, and squeezed dry
1 T lemon juice
1/4 t pepper
1 egg white, lightly beaten
3/4 lb ground turkey (orig. recipe called for lamb; ew.)
1/2 c crumbled feta
1/4 c chopped fresh mint or 4 t. dried mint flakes
Cooking spray
4 onion buns
1/2 c. diced tomato
Cucumber-Dill Sauce (combine 1/4 c peeled, seeded, diced cuke, 1/4 c
plain lowfat yogurt, 1/2 t chopped fresh or 1/8 t dried dill, 1 minced garlic
clove, stir well.)

Combine first 4 ingredients in bowl, stir well. Add meat, cheese, and mint;
stir well. Divide mixture into 4 half-inch-thick patties. Grill or broil 5 min.
per side (CL says to spray grill rack with cooking spray.) (or, I guess,
George 'em!) Place patties on buns with 2 T chopped tomato and 2 T
cuke-dill sauce.
