Greek Turkey Burgers

Turkey Burgers are not something I would ever choose on a menu.  I find them to be dry.  Bland.  But Greek Turkey Burgers, that is another thing entirely.

I’m not sure I had even tasted a turkey burger before marrying my husband.  But he convinced me that when you are craving a burger, sometimes a turkey burger can satisfy the craving for a lot less calories.  Adding the spinach didn’t get me all that excited at first but I also discovered later it adds some moisture to the meat.  And the burger has feta cheese.  Everything tastes better with feta cheese.  The lemon yogurt sauce on top makes this burger perfection.  To me, it just tastes like summer.

First, take your refrigerated ground turkey meat (I find room temperature makes it fall apart a little more) and frozen spinach, feta cheese, and dried oregano, dill, cumin, salt and pepper to a bowl.  Gently mix ingredients together until just combined.  Divide into four equal patties.  {Note: Sometimes I double this recipe and freeze the other half for next time.}

Lightly oil grill before placing burgers over medium heat.  Grill burgers 4-5 minutes per side until juices start to run clear.  Be sure to grill your buns so they are golden and crispy!

While the burgers cook, mix up the lemon yogurt sauce.  In small bowl, mix plain Greek yogurt, lemon juice, lemon zest, dill, salt and pepper.  Keep in refrigerator until serving.

Finally, when the burgers are ready, start to assemble.  Place burger on grilled buns and top with lettuce, tomato, red onion and even cucumber!  Slather top bun with Lemon Yogurt sauce.  Greek Turkey Burgers with Lemon Yogurt sauce are a light and refreshing meal that is healthy, satisfying and a perfect meal to enjoy during the summer!
