Greek Turkey Burgers with Tzatziki Sauce

I am in love with this tzatziki sauce. I seriously can (and do) eat it straight from the bowl. If you’re unfamiliar, tzatziki is a cold sauce made out of greek yogurt, cucumbers, and other amazingness. It’s super great on sandwiches (like this one), fish, or as a dip, or straight up.

Also, this turkey burger is amazing. Seriously. Maybe my favorite yet. Get yourself the regular ground turkey, not the breast — it makes all the difference in the world.

Serves 4

For the burgers:

Here’s what I used:

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, drained of any oil with paper towels
  • 1/2 cup fresh baby spinach leaves, chopped
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

Here’s what I did:

  1. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat for several minutes until very hot.
  2. Combine the turkey, feta, sun dried tomato, spinach and seasonings in a mixing bowl until just combined.
  3. Spray the grill pan with non-stick spray, form the meat mixture into four patties, and cook for 7-8 minutes on each side until the internal temperature reaches 165 degress. Let rest on a plate covered with foil for 5 minutes before serving.
  4. Garnish with tzatziki (recipe below) and additional spinach leaves and serve on sandwich thins.

For the tzatziki:

  • 1/2 packet Truvia
  • 2 tbsp fresh dill, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Here’s what I did:
