Sherri's Story

This is my healthy version of my greek stuffed burger. It's just as tasty but alot less fat and calories.

Some of my changes were:
ground beef/lamb...ground turkey
feta cheese...fat free feta
greek yogurt...fat free greek yogurt
caramelized onions...grilled onions

I'm revising some of my favorite recipes so that they will be healthier. Happy Cooking! sw:)

Sherri, don't forget to join up in my group called "Some Like It Hot"....all about those wonderful spicy peppers you love. Almost everyone of your recipes have some type of spice to it. I will have to get back over here and add some more of your recipes to that group. Hope you have a great weekend.

I will have to surprise my husband sometime soon and make these hamburgers. We love feta cheese and of course that mint you added in makes it even more authentic to Greek recipes. These sound delish Sherri!
