It’s been a rough week.
It may be y’alls Thursday, but technically it feels like Friday for me. While everybody was off barbecuing on the Labor Day weekend, I was at work.
I hate when I add an extra day to my work week because I feel thrown off the entire week. I keep thinking it’s a day before it actually is. It’s hard to stay focused and keep grinding when everything seems out of whack.
Thanks to my work ventures over the weekend, though, I was able to catch up on my blogging and TikTok videos. I had a backlog of almost 11 recipes, and now I’ve whittled it down to just two. Since I didn’t cook this weekend, I don’t have any extra recipes piling up.
One recipe in my backlog is this: Greek Turkey Burgers. I made them a few weekends ago with this new Greek seasoning I picked up at the store (Cavender’s). Holy moly, y’all. that seasoning is good.
The ground turkey tasted EXACTLY like gyro meat. I mean EXACTLY. It was so flavorful that I forgot it was even turkey!
Next to the seasoned meat, the next best part of this burger is the cucumber salad. It’s such a refreshing bite.
Greek Turkey Burgers
A simple turkey burger with Greek seasoning, served in a pita with a cucumber salad for topping.
- In a large bowl, combine turkey, milk, breadcrumbs, egg, Greek seasoning and salt. Mix well to combine.
- Heat one tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Form turkey into 4-5 patties.
- Cook burgers in hot skillet for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until browned. Check with a meat thermometer to make sure turkey is cooked to 165 degrees. Continue cooking for longer if not.
- Make the cucumber salad: combine tomatoes, cucumber, red wine vinegar, 2 teaspoons olive oil, olives, feta, oregano, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
- Build the burger: Place burger on a warm pita and top with cucumber salad.
