Ingredients

  • FOR THE GARLIC-DILL MAYONNAISE:
  • ⅓ cups Mayonnaise
  • 2 Tablespoons Minced Fresh Dill
  • 1 Tablespoon (or A Splash) Of White Wine Vinegar
  • 1 clove Fresh Garlic, Squeezed Through A Garlic Press
  • 2 pinches Kosher Salt
  • 1 pinch Black Pepper
  • FOR THE TURKEY BURGERS:
  • 1-¼ pound Ground Turkey
  • 2 Tablespoons Minced Fresh Parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • ¼ cups Minced Kalamata Olives
  • ¼ cups Minced Roasted Red Pepper
  • ¼ cups Minced Onion
  • ¾ cups Crumbled Feta Cheese (I Used Low Fat)
  • 1 clove Fresh Garlic, Squeezed Through A Garlic Press
  • Olive Oil, For Drizzling Into Your Skillet
  • 2 whole To 3 Whole Greek Pita Breads (pocket-less), Quartered
  • OPTIONAL FOR TOPPINGS:
  • Lettuce
  • Cucumber Slices
  • Tomato Slices
  • Red Onion Slices
  • Garlic Dill Mayo

Preparation

For the mayo:

In a small bowl combine the mayo, minced dill, vinegar, pressed garlic clove, salt and pepper. Mix until combined, cover bowl with plastic wrap and stick it in the fridge for at least one hour.

For the burgers:

In a large bowl combine the ground turkey, minced parsley and dried herbs. Add the minced olives, roasted red bell pepper and onions to that as well. Add the crumbled feta and pressed garlic and mix by hand until everything comes together.

Form into 4 (or 6 depending on how many you are serving and what size burgers you want) patties.

Heat a large griddle (you can use a skillet or grill too just make sure they are well oiled) to 375 F. Spread olive oil over top and cook each burger for 6-8 minutes on the first side. Flip and repeat for 4-6 more minute or until the burger is fully cooked.

Spread some of the garlic dill mayo on one side of each of the pita bread quarters. Top with the Greek turkey burger, lettuce, red onion, cucumber and tomato. Top with another pita quarter.

I really liked this one. My burgers got a little dry, but the flavors were really good.
