These are great burgers to throw on the BBQ or your indoor grill!  I love Greek food, and the flavor combo of these Greek Turkey Burgers is amazing.  Definitely is a top contender for my favorite turkey burger recipe!  I usually put my husbands burger on a thin bun (not gluten free), and for myself, I use either a gluten free bun or simply use a lettuce bun.

I felt these burgers wouldn’t be complete without a healthy tzatziki sauce to go on the side. It really is a must in my opinion, and it comes together in only 5 minutes!  I hope you make these for your next turkey burger!
