Juicy Greek Turkey Burgers with Tzatziki Sauce

Lauren Adler Dear, a very soon to be RD, provided this post for you.  Enjoy!

Summer is the perfect time to get your grill on and try out some new recipes. Turkey burgers often come out dry and flavorless, but these Greek burgers are bursting with flavor! Serve them with Kate’s Simple Greek Quinoa recipe for a delicious FODMAP-friendly meal.

First combine the ground turkey (I use half white meat and half dark meat). Then add lemon, dill, feta, olives, and pepper to taste.

Form into burgers and throw them on the grill (or a grill pan like I did). You can even freeze the leftovers and use them for an even faster weeknight meal.grilling burgers

For the tzatziki sauce just combine one cup Greek yogurt with dill, lemon juice, and chopped cucumber. (The small amount of lactose in the serving size of tzatziki should not pose a problem for most FODMAPers, but feel free to substitute a plain lactose free yogurt)

I packed up the extra tzatziki in individual containers to take for lunch during the week (it’s always good to plan ahead!).yogurt

Serve and enjoy!
