Pita Patties, Yogurt, feta, and mint add a taste of Greece to this flavorful but slimmed-down (and heart-healthy) summer favorite

Recipe Ingredients for Turkey Burgers

1/2 cup plain fat-free yogurt
2 tablespoons plain fat-free yogurt
2 green onions, green and white parts separated and thinly sliced
1/2 cup mint leaves, finely chopped
1 pound lean ground turkey
1 ounce feta cheese, finely crumbled
1 teaspoon ground coriander
2 whole wheat pitas, cut in half
2 tomatoes, thinly sliced

Recipe Directions for Turkey Burgers

  1. Prepare outdoor grill for covered direct grilling on medium.

  2. In small bowl, combine 1/2 cup yogurt, white parts of green onions, and half of the chopped mint.

  3. In large bowl, with hand, combine turkey, feta, coriander, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, green parts of green onions, remaining mint, and remaining yogurt. Mix well, then form into 3-1/2 inch round patties (each 3/4 inch thick).

  4. Place turkey patties on hot grill grate; cover and cook 12 to 13 minutes or just until meat loses its pink color throughout, turning once. (Burgers should reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.) During last 2 minutes of cooking, add pitas to grill. Cook 2 minutes or until warmed, turning once.

  5. Open pitas. Divide burgers, tomato slices, and yogurt sauce among pitas.
