    Greek Turkey Burger Bites

    Ever thought about making burgers as an appetizer or as a potluck meal for friends and family? Try making your favourite burger into bite-sized portions. They might be small in size, but they won’t be small in flavour. These burgers also pair well with a Greek salad for a delicious mid-week lunch or dinner.

    Fresh is best

    Squeeze fresh lemon on patties while cooking to give them the fresh zing of citrus.
