More About This Recipe

  • I am SO Greeking out over these burgers, you guys. 

    These kiddies are eaaaaaaasy easy easy. Total weeknight meal. Total friends-coming-over-in-thirty meal. Total hey-hubby-you-wrangle-dinner-while-I-wrangle-our-ankle-biters meal.

    You can pull this together blind-folded. You could pull this this together with one hand behind your back.

    Wait, no you can't.

    Eh, let's make them!

    Start by whisking up a super simple tzatziki sauce using Yoplait plain Greek yogurt, a little diced cucumber, some lemon juice, garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Voila.

    Then grab (or make!) some jarred olive tapenade. But jarred is easier and faster and doesn't make your brain hemorrhage.

    Pat out some turkey patties and throw them in a pan! Season with salt and pepper and get some good feta crumbles all melty on top. Oh mama.

    Then you just layer and garnish!

    Spread some of that yums tzatziki sauce on the bottom bun, then a burger patty, then some tapenade, then some more diced cucumber and chopped tomato! And mint leaves. Mint just gives that punch in the face that's so lovely.

    What's "gobble gobble" in Greek?

    See you at the bottom of that burger.

    *Bev won't actually see you at the bottom of the burger. She'll see you on the side. For more musings, visit her blog Bev Cooks and her Tablespoon profile.
