Today's delish recipe is from the beautiful Monique over at Ambitious Kitchen. You can browse Monique's recipe index on her site here or stop by her Facebook page here.

When I saw Monique's Grapefruit Brulee with Yogurt and Blueberry Sauce, not only did my stomach begin to growl, but I also realized I had to have her "over" to "play" (remember asking your  mom if you could ride the bus over to a friend's house? Yeah, kind of like that).

And so, without further ado, here's some tasty goodness to get your belly grumbling at 10am (I'm cruel. I know).

 


Ingredients: (Serves 4)
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped white onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 egg
  • red pepper flakes
  • 6 tablespoons (1 1/2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 (1/4-inch-thick) slices tomato
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 2 whole wheat pitas, cut in half
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. To make the burgers combine first 7 ingredients. Divide mixture into four portions and shape into a 1/2 inch-thick patty. Place your patties on foil, and lightly spray patties with cooking spray. Sprinkle some red pepper flakes on top of each patty if you'd like a little spice. Place into oven and bake your burgers for about 20 minutes, flipping them halfway through.
  3. Remove burgers from oven once done and immediately place into half of a pita. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons of feta cheese, tomato, and avocado slices.
