Opa! It’s grilling season and there’s no better way to enjoy this time of year than with a big, juicy burger. While you can’t go wrong with a classic hamburger (or cheeseburger – everything’s better with cheese), the Test Kitchen wanted to add a little somethin’ somethin’ to your grilling game this year.
These greek turkey burgers are anything but your basic burger. Mix ground turkey (a lean meat, perfect for swimsuit season), feta cheese, chopped onion, oregano, salt and pepper together, then form into four patties. Grill for about five minutes on each side until the meat is no longer pink and the juices run clear.
Serve these Mediterranean burgers in a warm pita pocket with lettuce and tomato. We topped ours with a simple, homemade cucumber sauce but you could use your favorite store-bought tzatziki or substitute the usual suspects like ketchup and mustard. Watch the video below to see just how easy it is to make tzatziki at home using your Hamilton Beach® blender.
The feta cheese is a salty, cheesy surprise when you bite into the burger while a dollop of cool cucumber sauce is a refreshing (and welcomed) touch in the spring and summer heat. Serve these burger with hummus and veggies, a light tabbouleh, or cucumber salad for a lighter version of your favorite summer sandwich.
With the Indoor Searing Grill, you can enjoy outdoor grilled flavor anytime you want, regardless of the weather.
