As the long weekend rolls in, I am rolling out… of town that is.

Yep, me and the family are headed to Palm Springs for a little fun in the sun tomorrow, BUT I couldn’t leave before without sharing these deeeelicoius burgers with you guys.

Greek Style Turkey Burgers have been a favorite of mine for quite some time now so I’m super excited to have finally had the chance to share them in a video post.

Remember the Tzaziki video from last week?  Well, you may wanna revisit that recipe before making these burgers because topping the Greek Style Turkey Burgers with Tzaziki is a match made in heaven and absolutely delicious.

Hope you all have a chance to kick back and enjoy the long weekend!

And if you have any burger favorites up your sleeve, I’d love to hear about them:).

Greek Style Turkey Burgers

Yield: Serves 4

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. of extra lean ground turkey
  • 1 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp. of dried oregano
  • ½ tsp salt and some fresh ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup of non-fat plain yogurt
  • ½ cup jarred roasted peppers, chopped up
  • ¼ cup of Kalamata olives, chopped up
  • 1/3 cup of feta cheese, crumbled

*Serve w/ Butter lettuce leaves and Tzaziki

Directions:

Place turkey in a large bowl and add garlic powder, oregano, salt, pepper, and yogurt.  Using your hands, combine until everything is well incorporated. 

Add peppers, olives and feta cheese to turkey mixture and gently work into the meat until the ingredients are evenly distributed.

Form four patties.  I like to keep them nice and fat! 

Heat  grill pan over a medium heat and drop burgers on the pan.  Grill for about 6 minutes or until cooked through.

Place burgers inside a few leaves of butter lettuce and top with a couple of tablespoons of Tzaziki.  Enjoy!

Serves 4.

    Yum! We made these and loved every bite. I didn’t have roasted red peppers and was pressed for time so I just chopped a pepper up and added it to the meat. We ate ours in pita pockets with some tomato and cucumber slicess.We will definitely be having these again soon.

    Just made these! AMAZING!! I skipped the tzaziki sauce, and used the creamy garlic dip sauce from the spicy sweet potato wedges recipe. Tasted great! Another favorite at my apartment. Yum, thanks Dani!

    Hi Dani,

    I do a recipe-of-the-week on my blog which I present also on radio & I came to your site today looking for clean-food inspiration. I’m thinking I’d like to make your turkey burgers..but give them a little twist here and there and probably make them chicken burgers too. I’ll give the tzatziki-from-scratch a go too (I usually just buy it).. Yours looked so nice on the video. Eventually I’d like to be like you! Eating well MOST of the time.. it’s what my body loves the most. I’ve not been well in the last 12 months.. so a good diet would be so beneficial. I used to be a regular viewer of your recipes on You Tube.. (back when I posted my own video’s). LOVE your video’s..and your website. Anyway, I will include a link to your site when I blog the chicken burgers!
