The ingredients required for this recipe are mostly kitchen staples. There may only be a couple you have not purchased before:

- Feta cheese- crumbled or block chopped up
- Garlic salt
- Burger buns
- Burger toppings
How to make the Carrot and Sweet Potato Fries
This meal can be ready all at the same time if you get the fries started first. Wash, peel and cut the sweet potatoes into “fries”. On a large baking sheet, toss them in oil, cumin and salt.
Roast at 375 degrees for 45 minutes, turning halfway through. The pan of fries should stay on the top in the oven (when the burgers go in) to help the sweet potatoes and carrots crisp up a little bit. Once your burgers are out of the oven broil the fries for a couple minutes if you like them more crispy.
How to make the Feta Turkey Burgers
To make the burgers, combine all ingredients and form into patties. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and spary with non-stick spray. Then, cook for 3-4 minutes per side to get them crispy (like they would on the grill).
Next, move them into the oven on a baking sheet to finish cooking through. The will be cooked through when the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
Bake at 375 degrees about 15-20 minutes depending on the size of your burgers. Serve the burgers with our without buns and with lettuce, tomato, onion, mustard, etc. Add a scoop of fries and enjoy!
If you make a double batch, like we tend to, store them in a container in the refrigerator and heat for 1-2 minutes in the microwave (flipping halfway). The leftover burgers will be good for 3-5 days.
