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
1-2 tsp of Greek Seasoning
1/4 cup finely chopped/minced red onion
1/4 cup bread crumbs (this will help the burgers not be as sticky before cooking and make them easier to handle, however I usually leave this part out)
1 Cup Tzatziki
(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 5-6 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 Tzatziki and I am lazy so I usually just put minced onions (1 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.
-My mom and I both love these. I often make a big batch for lunches for the week and eat them over salad with Tzatziki. They reheat great!
-I used to nanny and make dinner for the family once a week. To make these more kid friendly, I mixed everything together except for the onions and cheese. Then I divided the meat, put the onions and feta in the adults and just put cheddar in the kids (they were super picky) and everyone was happy.
