These turkey burgers are a great, lean, flavorful dinner.  The only problem with this one is it takes A LOT of prep, so I only make it when I have a lot of time to prepare for all of the chopping, shredding, and mixing.  If you like this one, check out other healthy options at Fit Mom Angela D!

Recipe Review

I’m always a fan of anything “Greek”… pasta, pizza, if it has feta or olives, I’m in!  File this recipe under “only-make-if-you-have-a-lot-of time”, but absolutely delicious!  It’s light, but filling, and has a great mix of healthy vegetables and dairy with the addition of feta.  The Tzatziki sauce is delicious and can be paired with a lot of other options.  This one is a winner for me!
