I found this recipe and will be making these bad boys for dinner this week. I have no doubt in my mind that they will be tasty. I regularly use a little cheese in my turkey burgers [so not a big jump, plus feta ... nom.] & who doesn't love avocado?? I foresee these being a new alternative to the normal way I make them.
Feta-Avocado Turkey Burger Pitas
For the turkey burgers:
1 lb ground turkey burger
1 avocado, diced
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 tsp garlic salt
3 tbs bread crumbs
3 tbs diced green onion
salt and pepper
1 pkg whole wheat pitas
2 tomatoes, sliced
1 head of lettuce, separated
1/3 cup light Mayo
1-2 tsp cumin (depending on how strong you like it)
1. In a large bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients together, mixing with your hands until evenly incorporated. Shape into 6 patties. Season both sides with salt and pepper.
2. Lightly brush each side of the patties with extra virgin olive oil. Place patties on the grill (high heat), cooking about 6 minutes each side until cooked through.
3. Spread some of the spicy mayo in each pita pocket and place a turkey burger in each. Garnish with lettuce and tomatoes.
