Greek Turkey Burgers

I had been wanting to make Greek Turkey Burgers forever, so I finally mustered up the effort to make them a little while ago and they have now earned their place on my list of favorite meals. This is a really easy, delicious and pretty healthy meal that you can easily tweak to your personal tastes.

Greek Turkey Burgers with Tzatziki Sauce

1 package of Turkey meat (Serves 4)
1 cup crumbled feta
1 cup of plain Greek yogurt (I just used an individual serving)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp dill
1 tsp parsley
1/3-1/2 cup finely chopped/minced red onion

(you can also just use Greek seasoning in place of the herbs)

1. Mixed together all of the ingredients above and form into patties
2. Either on a grill, pan, etc. cook on each side for about 5 minutes on medium or until internal temperature is about 160 degrees F
3. Put on burger and add a generous spoonful of Tzatziki Sauce.

I have not quite mastered my recipe of Tzatziki sauce yet, I just put minced onions (1-2 Tbsp), chopped cucumbers (2Tbsp) and lemon juice (~1 Tbsp) and mixed it with a individual serving of Greek yogurt. It was super tasty/quick/easy but not super authentic.

-I have made this a couple of times and I have still not mastered on how to keep the burgers together, one always falls apart on me. I have heard putting an egg in the mix helps but I have not tried that yet.

    This sounds good.

    You did a great job on this. Sometimes people try to include too many flavors to turkey, but these are spot on. Tzatziki sauce is a wonderful pairing and I like the touch of dill in the burgers. Unique and tasty-well done!
