Greek Turkey Burgers

We typically go for classic burgers around here – beef patties with American cheese and ketchup – so this recipe was a quite a bit outside of our norm. I’m really glad we went outside our comfort zone with these because we both really, really loved them. The burgers were nice and juicy and the Tzatziki Sauce topping gave them a really light, fresh taste.

These are super quick to make, which makes them a great weeknight dinner for the summer months – they’ll definitely be a regular around here!

(from LaaLoosh)
Serves 4

For the Tzatziki Sauce:
1 container (6 oz) Greek  plain yogurt
1/4 c. shredded cucumber
 3 T. chopped red onion
1 T. chopped fresh dill weed
2 t. fresh lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 t. salt

For the burgers:
1 lb. lean ground turkey
1 c. crumbled feta cheese (4 oz)
1/3 c. chopped red onion
1 T. chopped fresh dill weed
1 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
3 garlic cloves, minced

In small bowl, mix 1/2 cup yogurt and remaining sauce ingredients; refrigerate until serving.

Heat gas or charcoal grill.

In medium bowl, mix all burger ingredients and remaining yogurt. Shape mixture into 4 patties, about 1/2 inch thick.

Place patties on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 8 to 10 minutes, turning after 5 minutes, until thermometer inserted in center of patties reads 160F degrees.
