Mediterranean Turkey Burgers

Serves: 4

In lieu of ketchup and mustard, whip up an easy yogurt sauce for a new take on the turkey burger.

Dovetailing Tip: Cook an additional 1 pound ground turkey to be heated and seasoned on day 4 for Turkey Sausage and Broccoli Pasta.

Total Time:


1 7 ounce container 2% plain greek yogurt (about 3/4 cup)
1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese (about 2 ounces)
1 persian or kirby cucumber, grated
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

lettuce and tomato slices, for topping
potato chip, for serving


Combine the yogurt, feta, cucumber, mint, half of the garlic, 1 tablespoon water, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Combine the turkey, the remaining garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a medium bowl. Form into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil, then add the patties and cook until browned and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

Spread the yogurt sauce on the buns. Sandwich with the burgers; top with lettuce and tomato. Serve with potato chips.
