Greek Turkey Burgers

It's been a while since I've posted a recipe. I've been cooking a lot, but with babysitting and starting home school, it's been a little hectic around here and blogging has taken a backseat. I'll hopefully schedule some posts this afternoon for your reading enjoyment. ;)

So, here's something I made recently. My family really enjoyed it for something a little different.

Greek Turkey Burgers
from Pampered Chef Main Dishes

1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp onion, finely chopped, divided
1 lb lean ground turkey
1 (8 oz) container nonfat plain yogurt, divided
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 egg white
1 garlic clove, pressed
1 tsp dried oregano leaves, divided
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
2 medium tomatoes, sliced
2/3 cup cucumber, thinly sliced
6 pita bread rounds
6 lettuce leaves

  1. For burgers, combine 1/4 cup onion, ground turkey, 1/4 cup of yogurt, bread crumbs, egg white, garlic, 3/4 tsp of oregano, salt and pepper; mix lightly but thoroughly.
  2. For sauce, stir remaining 2 tbsp onion and 1/4 tsp oregano into remaining yogurt; set aside.
  3. Form turkey mixture into 6 oval patties, 1/2-inch thick. Lightly spray skillet with Pam or brush with olive oil; heat over medium heat until hot. Cook patties 10-12 minutes or until meat is no longer pink in center, turning once.
  4. Cut one third off top of each pita bread to form a pocket. Fill each pita with lettuce, tomato, cucumber and turkey burger. Top with reserved yogurt sauce.

You can substitute dill or mint for the oregano. Enjoy!
