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:)
