From Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook


1 egg, slightly beaten

1/4 c fine dry bread crumbs or 3/4 c whole wheat bread crumbs

1 tbl milk

2 tsp dried Greek seasoning

1/4 tsp salt

1 lb ground uncooked turkey or chicken (we used turkey)

4 soft pita bread rounds or 4 whole wheat hamburger buns (we used whole wheat pitas that I had made from scratch)

1 recipe Greek Salsa

1/4 c crumbled feta cheese

1. pre-heat broiler.  In a medium bowl stir together egg, bread crumbs, milk, Greek seasoning, and salt.  Add ground turkey; mix weel.  Shape into 4 1/2 thick patties (we actually halved this and made 8).

2. Pleace patties on the unheated rack of a broiler pan.  Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat for 11 to 13 minutes or until no longer pink (165 F) turning once halfway through broiling time.

This was when I made the Greek Salsa:  In a bowl combine 2 tbl white wine vinegar, 2 tbl olive oil, and 1 tsp dried greek seasoning.  Stir in 1 cup finely chopped tomato, 1/4 cup finely chopped cucumber, and 1/4 cup finely chopped, pitted kalamata or ripe olives (we used canned black olives). 

3. Serve the burgers in pita bread.  Top with Greek salsa and sprinkle with feta.

This was awesome!  I loved the Greek Salsa.  It was really light and went well with the burgers.  We will be making this one again.
