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
- 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
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!
