Grecian Garlic Turkey Burgers

I got this idea from The Best Life Diet's Greek Turkey Burger recipe. I was hesitant to try it, but I went ahead and added in some extra ingredients for flavor. If you really want to impress people, or more importantly yourself, make your own Greek Seasoning Mix using fresh herbs (spearmint, parsley, oregano, along with onions and garlic)

Grecian Garlic Turkey Burgers with Yogurt Sauce in Whole Wheat Pita

· 1 package Ground Turkey
· Greek Seasoning Mix (McCormick makes this) – to taste
· Roasted Red Peppers - dice about three
· Fresh Ground Peppercorn – to taste
· Fresh Ground Garlic Sea Salt – to taste
· Chicken demi-glace – about 1 TB mixed 2 TB hot water to make a paste
· Balsamic Vinegar – about TB or to taste
· Breadcrumbs – to soak up the vinegar and demi-glace
· Garlic Paste – Trader Joe’s has a good one. About 2 TB – more to taste
· McCormick Grinders Garlic Sea Salt

Mix all of the ingredients. Form Patties. Coat in breadcrumbs. Spray pan – I use a non fat butter flavored spray. Cook!

Yogurt sauce: Mix nonfat yogurt, diced cucumbers, diced onion, salt, and pepper.

Toast pita and fill with sliced patty, yogurt sauce, and fat free feta. This turned our really well. It was flavorful and filling. It almost tasted like a gyro, I may even use ground lamb next time. This will definitely be put in my meal rotations.
