Feta Turkey Burgers

From Russellville Community Market

<p>These incredible burgers are the result of throwing ingredients around in the kitchen and seeing what tasted good! :) I hope you&#8217;ll like them too.</p> <p>As a note, you can replace the Ground Turkey with ground beef (found here on the market)f, ground buffalo (found here on the market), ground elk (also on the market), or just about any meat you can find. Also, the Feta Cheese can be replaced with blue cheese crumbles if you desire and the cheese quantity can be reduced if needed.</p>
