Mediterranean Burgers

Believe it or not, the original recipe for these was in our local grocery store flier and I have changed it to suit myself, but it's still pretty amazing. Even k-ster speaks highly of it.

I use ground turkey for these because I don't eat beef.  I have never made them with beef so I can't imagine how they would taste. 

Mix in some feta and make patties, like these and set them on the grill, medium-low.  You can probably make them in your oven, but I don't know about that.  I'm a grilling gal when it comes to burgers of any kind.

You are supposed to use Ranch dressing from a bottle for this next part, but you know me better than that!  Instead, I buy these packets of dressing mix because the others have MSG in them.

Mix it with some plain, thick, Greek yogurt and some cucumber.  I use about half of packet of dressing mix and I usually use more than this 6 oz. container of yogurt, but it's all I had.  Mix them together and let them sit while your burgers are cooking. 

The pièce de résistance is these "miami" onion rolls. I  don't know what you people in Miami do differently, but OMG these rolls are amazing.  They really do justice to these burgers!

Split the rolls, put a burger on the roll and then slather on some of the yogurt dressing.  It's yogurt, so slather away.  Sometimes, turkey burgers can be a little dry, so this dressing takes care of that in an instant.

Nothing like "moming up" a burger with broccoli!  I can't help it!  I think you need a vegetable at every dinner.  So I steamed some broccoli and squeezed some lemon juice on it.  Yummmmmm.
