There are so many different types of burgers it’s almost ridiculous. The type of meat, the sauce, the toppings, the choices for each are endless. My favorite is the classic burger but once in a while the cravings strike for a healthier option. A healthy burger might sound like an oxymoron but with a little creativity, you can create a delicious one like this Greek turkey burger. Turkey burgers might have a bad reputation for being dry and bland but this version is anything but. Stuffed with feta cheese, spinach, and sun-dried tomatoes and finished with tzatziki, this burger definitely hits the spot.
