Grilled Turkey Burgers with Tzatziki and Feta


  • 1 ½ pounds ground dark meat turkey
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • 1/3 cup feta cheese, crumbled (preferably goats milk)
  • 2 green onions, minced
  • Vegetable oil, for oiling grill
  • Tzatziki sauce
  • 5 pita pockets or flatbreads
  • 1-2 small avocados, thinly sliced
  • 1 head butter lettuce, leaves removed


  1. In a small bowl combine the ground turkey, salt, pepper, feta and green onions. Mix with your hands to combine everything. Form into 5 football shaped burgers. Set aside while you preheat your grill. 

  2. Preheat your grill to 375°F. Clean and oil the grates.

    Grill the burgers 5-6 minutes per side, or until cooked to 165°F. Remove the burgers from the grill and lightly grill the pitas, 1-2 minutes per side. 

  3. To assemble: cut the grilled pita pockets in half so they can fold over themselves like a sandwich. On the bottom of the pita place 4-5 slices of the avocado, then the burger followed by a generous amount of tzatziki. Top off with a couple leaves of the butter lettuce and the other half of the pita. 

    Serve warm.
