I have only recently became a fan of feta. I think I had it once a LONG TIME ago and didn't have a good experience and just decided I didn't like feta. Plus, it sorta reminds me of dried up cottage cheese and I do not like cottage cheese. Except for in lasagna.
Then I went to a friends house for a party and fell in love with an unknown garlicky dip. I ate way too much before asking her what kind of dip it was. She said it was feta.
"But I don't like feta cheese!"
Clearly something about this dip made me completely rethink the whole feta thing. Not to mention the 10,000 recipes that I see on the Internet with people raving about feta cheese.
So it was time for me to try it again.
I saw these burgers from Tricia from Once A Month Mom. I LOVE sun dried tomatoes, I LOVE basil, but feta? What would they be like with this cheese that I claimed for so long not to like?
I decided to go for it. I trust her recipes and millions of other people love feta and that dip! Oh, that dip was awesome! So feta it was.
Oh my oh my! These little babies were good! They were so simple to make and just packed with flavor!! I had to control myself and only eat one. Luckily there was one left that I enjoyed for lunch the next day.
I made these along with several other recipes on my ground turkey freezer cooking day last week.
