Feta Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil Turkey Burger with Sweet Potato Fries

Since Monday night’s dinner included barely any carbs, I was sure Tuesday would make up for it! 
I needed a good burger and fries in my life pronto.
I order nothing but sweet potato fries when given the option.Quite comical as I never used to touch sweet potatoes growing up. Now, I can’t get enough! Making them yourself is no easy task. It takes time and patience to cut each fry to a similar size and I still can’t seem to get them perfectly crisp. Other blogs say the key is to spread them out from one another on a pan, perhaps I am working with too many. Any tips you can give, would love to hear!
When we crave a good burger at home, I typically like to make them from scratch using ground turkey meat. I have not used beef for over a year. Turkey is a healthier choice and just as delicious! Can you tell the difference? Cause I can not.

The sweet potato fry recipe I posted once before, here it is again.
As for the burger, I used this recipe because I simply love sun-dried tomatoes! Instead of spinach leaves, I substituted using fresh basil. Yum! I loved this recipe, especially for the sun-dried tomato mayo I used as a condiment and to dip my fries in. Recommend them both!

Ingredients
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 Cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 Cup sun-dried tomatoes, jarred in olive oil
1/2 Cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
Pinch of Kosher salt, fresh cracked pepper and garlic powder
Dinner rolls or sourdough buns
Sun-Dried Tomato Mayonnaise
1 Cup mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes, packed in olive oil, drained
Directions
1.  Heat oil into a large skillet over medium heat.  Place turkey, feta, sun-dried tomatoes, basil and seasonings into a mixing bowl.  Mix until just combined.  Form burger patties and place onto the skillet.    Cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown and cooked through. Do not double or triple flip your burger, once it enough!
2.  Place mayonnaise and tomatoes into a bowl; mix to combine. Spread over insides of warm rolls. Layer bottom roll with spinach and the burger. Close with top roll and enjoy!
Mine made 4 large burgers.

xo!
