How to make healthy Greek Turkey Burgers

These turkey burgers are simple to make by combining ground turkey with the Greek ingredients listed in the recipe card below.

Once the mixture is mixed, form them into patties and then grill on an outdoor or indoor grill (as I’ve done here– it was too hot to grill on this day, so I used my favorite Griddler). You can also cook them in a large cast iron or nonstick skillet coated with 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

Here are the easy steps:

  1. Combine ground turkey and turkey burger ingredients (see recipe at the bottom of this post) in a large bowl until well combined.
  2. Form the mixture into 4 patties, using about 1/2 cup for each.
  3. Heat the grill (or skillet) coated with oil to medium-high. Once hot, add the burgers.
  4. Cook for 5 minutes on one side, then flip the burgers and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover the grill or skillet so the insides become fully cooked.
  5. Once cooked, prepare the tzatziki sauce.

Greek Turkey Burgers FAQ’s

How long does it take to cook Greek Turkey Burgers?

How do you know if the turkey burger is cooked through?

Be sure that the internal temperature of the turkey burgers reaches at least 165°F before removing from the grill or skillet. You can the temperature with a digital instant-read meat thermometer/

Can you substitute store-bought tzatziki?

Absolutely! While it’s incredibly easy to make your own tzatziki sauce in about 5 minutes, using store-bought sauce saves you a few minutes!
