“For a cheaper version of lamb burgers, I substitute ground turkey. Serving it in a pita pocket is a fun and different twist on the regular burger in a bun.” —Nichole Helms, Piqua, Ohio

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup shredded seeded peeled cucumber
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons snipped fresh dill
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • MINI BURGERS:
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 4 pita breads (6 inches), halved and warmed
  • 2 medium tomatoes, thinly sliced

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the onion, parsley, oregano, salt and pepper. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well. Shape into sixteen 2-in. patties.
  3. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack. Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the grill for 2-3 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Serve in pita halves with tomatoes and reserved sauce.

    We absolutely love these. The yogurt sauce is to die for (even without dill - not a fan). I made these twice so far, and the second time I added some crumbled Feta, but they are just as tasty without it. Will definitely be making these regularly.

    Loved these. My husband was raving over them. I made lots and froze them in smaller quantities so we could have them many more times.

    I've made other greek style burgers that were more flavorful. They weren't bad, but nothing special.

    Very delicious! I used dried herbs instead of fresh b/c that's what I had, and used feta cheese in with the dressing. Definitely satisfies a Greek craving!

    Delicious! Healthy, too. When my husband and I tried them, our local grocery store was out of pita bread, so we ate them on mini hambuger buns, which also works well...mini greek sliders!

    We totally love these. Our kids, however, balked at the green pieces in the burgers. I also do not like dill, so we used parsley in both the sauce and the burgers. Tasted quite yummy all around!
