Feta and Olive Turkey Burgers with Tzatziki

These burgers were AMAZING! They are super flavorful, and I actually recommend not eating them with a bun. I think it just takes away from the tastiness. Next time, I will have my burger on lettuce with the tzatziki sauce, sans bun. I highly recommend that you try these this spring! I served them with Alexia Spicy Sweet Potato Fries. Recipe adapted from Pinch My Salt.



Ingredients:
Burgers
2 medium cloves garlic
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 1/2 lb. ground turkey
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons sweet paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/3 cup crumbled feta
1/3 cup chopped green olives

Tzatziki
1 cup plain Greek strained yogurt (I recommend Fage)
1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded, and shredded
3/8 tsp salt
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 small garlic clove, minced or pressed
1 tbsp finely chopped dill

Directions:
Prepare the tzatziki by placing all the ingredients in a bowl and stirring to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Make a paste with the garlic and salt by combing together with a mortar and pestle.

In a large bowl, add turkey, garlic/salt paste, parsley, dill, olive oil, paprika, cumin, coriander, cayenne, feta and olives. Using your hands, combine the ingredients until well incorporated. Break the meat into 6 equal balls and shape into 1 inch thick patties. Place the patties on a plate or sheet pan and freeze for 10-20 minutes.

While the burgers are freezing, prepare your grill. Grill the burgers over medium heat until cooked through, or until an instant-read meat thermometer reads 165.

Serve burgers with pita or lettuce, topped with tzatziki sauce.

Normally I just have plain burgers, but I love feta and olives, so I bet these are wonderful. Thanks for the new-to-me idea!

This was delicious - it will definitely be repeated soon! I love that it is so flavorful and unique - not like the typical burgers that we make!
