Grilled Turkey Burgers


One of the best things about Summer is being able to grill out all the time (something that we've been doing a lot around here). With the temps in the high 80s and super muggy, no one has any desire to heat up the kitchen. 
The other day we made this meal for dinner. It's a recipe that we used to make fairly often growing up, but since Adam doesn't like ground turkey, I haven't made it in years. Well, right now he's gone traveling for work, and there are plenty of turkey burger lovers around so we had this to eat and I'm happy to say it was as big a hit as it was years ago! 

Super Simple and Easy Turkey Burgers. 

You will need: 

3lbs of ground turkey (we had a lot of people, so we had 6 lbs total). 
2 tsp ground oregano 
salt and pepper to taste
half an 8-ounce jar (more if you really like them like we do!) of pitted green olives, drained and finely chopped
1 egg
1/2 cup of breadcrumbs

1 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt
1/2 a large cucumber, peeled and diced
1/2-1 cup of good olive oil

pita pockets-cut in half
lettuce-washed and chopped
one large diced tomato

To make: 

Mix the first 6 ingredients together well in a large bowl and then shape into patties (this should make about 6-8 of them). 
Cook the burgers on the grill, and while they are cooking, make the sauce.

To make the sauce mix the yogurt, cucumber, and olive oil in a bowl until it has a salad dressing consistency. 

When the burgers are done slice each one in half and place in the pita pockets, add lettuce and tomatoes, and drizzle dressing on top.
Serve with homemade fries on the side. 

Enjoy!
