2 Tbsp Sun-Dried Tomato Dipping Oil – divided
1 lb. ground turkey (I don’t use ground white breast meat – too dry)
1 cup firmly packed fresh baby spinach, rough chopped
1 Tbsp plain or Italian seasoned bread crumbs
4 oz. feta cheese (large chunks) 1/2 tsp dried oregano or 1-1/2 Tbsp fresh oregano
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1 small clove mincd fresh garlic or 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Salt to taste (be conservative – feta is salted)
Combine all ingredients (starting w/ turkey) except feta in mixing bowl. Use 1 Tbsp sun-dried dipping oil in mixture. Add feta last so it stays in chunks. Form 4-5 patties. Let them set up in refrigerator for 1 hour. Heat the other Tbsp sun-dried tomato dipping oil in skillet and saute patties for about 6 minutes on each side (or till internal temp. is 165 degrees). Great on pita or burger buns, lightly toasted.
– Any kind of hummus you like …
– flavored (roasted red pepper is great) or plain mayonaise mixed with a bit of sun-dried tomato dipping oil and capers.
– Thin-sliced cucumbers.

Variation: Gourmet Dipping Oil works beautifully too.
