Turkey Burgers: 

1 pound lean ground turkey meat

4 scallions, thinly sliced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

4 light multi-grain English muffins

Feta Yogurt Sauce:

1/2 cup fat-free Greek yogurt

2 tablespoons crumbled feta

1 tablespoon finely chopped dill

1 clove garlic, minced

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Cooking spray


  1. For the turkey burgers: Thoroughly combine the turkey, scallions, garlic, paprika, cumin and red pepper flakes in a medium bowl; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Form the mixture into four 3/4-inch-thick patties and season lightly with salt and pepper. 
  2. For the feta yogurt sauce: Combine the yogurt, feta, dill, garlic and lemon juice in a small bowl. Season lightly with salt and pepper. 
  3. Heat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Toast the English muffins, cut-side down, until golden and set aside. Spray the burgers on both sides with cooking spray and grill until browned and entirely cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Place each burger on the bottom piece of an English muffin, top with the yogurt sauce and sandwich the top piece of an English muffin.
