Greek Turkey Burgers - delicious burgers in pitas with feta and homemade tzatziki sauce! Plus, the best tips for keeping turkey burgers from drying out!

LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!

I repeat, LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!

Omg, you guys. I have never been excited for the last day of school. I have had a year and I am ready for 3 months of fun.

I’m gonna swim in all the pools, I’m gonna sleep stupid late every day, I’m gonna have ice cream every night, and I’m gonna eat all the burgers.

Okay, let’s talk turkey.

I tend to choose turkey over beef when it comes to burgers. Less calories, less fat = more cheese on top.

My favorite way to do turkey burgers is with the Jennie-O Lean Seasoned Turkey Burgers. They’re already portioned out and shaped AND seasoned with a bit of onion and garlic. So it saves you a lot of time, especially if you’re cooking up a bunch.

When I want to add a bunch of stuff to the burger itself, I go for the Jennie-O 93/7 Lean Ground Turkey. It’s lean but not so lean that it’s going to get dry on you.

Speaking of dry turkey burgers, let’s talk tips. Because it really is easy to dry out a burger if you aren’t careful.

First up, don’t keep flipping the burger! Just leave it alone! For the turkey burgers, I start with 9 minutes on each side and then use a meat thermometer to check for doneness. If it’s not at 165F, I let it go a few more minutes. But don’t keep flipping it back and forth!

Don’t squish your burgers with the spatula while they’re cooking. You’re squeezing all the juices out when you do that.

If you want to add a little extra moisture to your meat mixture, a couple tablespoons of olive oil or some sauteed onions will do the trick.

And finally, let your burgers rest for a few minutes before you serve them up. It allows all the juices to redistribute and get delicious and stuff.

So for these, I used those Jennie-O Lean Seasoned Turkey Burgers that I love so much. I cooked up some of those, tossed them in some split pitas with lettuce, tomato, and red onion. And then sprinkled some feta on top. Plus, a healthy drizzle of homemade tzatziki sauce.

I’m addicted to tzatziki sauce.

And I know what you’re thinking.

“Amanda, you don’t like cucumbers.”

I know.

But tzatziki sauce is one of the greatest things on earth.

Happy Monday, guys!

I hope everyone takes a minute today to remember all the men and women (and dogs) that gave it all.

I’ve got a crazy busy week so I’m gonna use today to get ahead on some work stuff. And maybe force my kids to help me clean the house. And I need to finish cutting the grass because I totally gave up halfway through on Saturday after getting attacked by the mutant ants that live in central Texas.

And then I think I’m going to grill some burgers!
