Turkey Burgers:

Vegetable oil, for greasing

1 1/2 pounds ground dark meat turkey

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/3 cup feta cheese, crumbled (preferably goat's milk feta)

2 scallions, minced

Tzatziki Sauce:

1 cup Greek yogurt

1/2 cup grated English cucumber (about 1/4 small peeled cucumber)

1 tablespoon finely minced dill

1 clove garlic, minced or finely grated

1/2 lime, juiced

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


5 pita pockets or flatbreads

1 to 2 small avocados, thinly sliced

1 head butter lettuce, leaves separated


  1. For the turkey burgers: Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat until hot. Clean and oil the grates.
  2. Place the turkey, salt, pepper, feta and scallions in a medium bowl. Mix with your hands until combined. Form into 5 football-shaped patties.
  3. Grill the patties until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F, 5 to 6 minutes per side. Remove the patties to a plate.
  4. While the turkey patties cook, make the tzatziki sauce: Stir together all of the ingredients in a small bowl. Taste and adjust for seasoning, if necessary. Refrigerate until ready to serve, up to 3 days.
  5. Lightly grill the pitas, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
  6. To assemble: Cut the grilled pita pockets in half. On each of the bottom halves, place 4 to 5 avocado slices, then a turkey patty. Dollop with a generous amount of the tzatziki. Top with a couple of the lettuce leaves. Close the burgers and serve warm.
