  • Step 1

    Quarter the onion, and then add the onion, red peppers, and olives to a food processor. Pulse until they are finely minced.
  • Step 2

    Chop the parsley. Add the turkey, panko, food processor mixture, feta, salt, dill, oregano, and parsley to a bowl. Mix together until blended.
  • Step 3

    Form 4 equal sized balls (tip: weigh the batch and divide by four). And preheat a grill pan or skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray.
  • Step 4

    Drop the balls onto the heated grill pan and smash with your spatula to form patties (since the meat mixture can be sticky).
  • Step 5

    Cook thoroughly, flip when needed, about 10 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165F.
