Turkey Burgers with Feta, Oregano and Thyme

Last night was a WILDE adventure out on the town! We went to the Wilde Roast on St. Anthony Main in Minneapolis. The atmosphere was energetic, the view breathtaking (right on the Mississippi River!), and the food…oh the food! (Visit the website and peruse the menu http://wilderoastcafe.com).

K had rosemary and chicken flatbread with gorgonzola cheese and a white sauce. E had tortilla-crusted tilapia with lime and spicy mayo, served open-face on a ciabatta roll. Both choices were delicious! But what looked incredible was the Chi Chi LaRue turkey burger which one of our girl friends ordered. It was a juicy turkey burger with avocado, corn salsa, and cheddar jack cheese, served with sweet potato waffle fries. We decided that we need to order this on our next visit to the Wilde Roast.

But, we could not wait for next time and put our own double dipper twist on the Chi Chi LaRue tonight. We put feta, oregano, and thyme in the burgers and topped them with fresh avocado. And of course, we made crispy sweet potatoes to accompany the burgers. They weren’t fancy waffle fries, but they tasted just as good. The Wilde Roast has competition.

Happy double dipping!

  • 1/2 pound ground turkey
  • 2 tbsp. Feta
