Greek Turkey Burgers – Kid Made and Approved

Here is a recipe that is easy and quick.  Tried on my kids and various guests and their kids.  Success!!!  Recipe for Burgers is adopted from Rachel Ray and Tzatziki Sauce from Wonderlust Kitchen
Now grab the kids and lets get cooking.  Our family cooking night is Monday nights.

Here are some tools to make cooking fun for the helpers.  These can be found on Amazon or Target – garlic press, veggie chopper, burger press.



Ingredients – Burgers:

  • 1.5lbs ground turkey or ground chicken or ground lamb
  • 1 Cup Tzatziki Sauce (see below, easy, fast, extra veggies)

  • 1.5 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1 Tbsp grilled seasoning

Ingredients -Tzatziki Sauce:

  • 1.5 cups full fat organic plain greek yogurt
  • large cucumber or more, seeded, diced, dried with paper towels, don’t skip this part or the sauce will be watery
  • 1Tbsp fresh chopped dill
  • 1 garlic cloves
  • 1/2tsp salt
  • 2Tbsp olive oil
  • 1Tbsp white vinegar

Instructions – Tzatziki Sauce (you can buy it at the store premade, I like to add extra veggies and its not hard to make):

  1. Have kids chop cucumber in the Veggie Chopper
  2. Have kids crush garlic in Garlic Press
  3. Mix all above ingredients

Instructions – Burgers:

  • Mix all the ingredients
  • Have kids make patties using the Burger Press – patties are made fast and perfectly shap


    Drizzle olive oil on patties and grill

    Serve with buns and extra Tzatziki Sauce, side salad, roasted potatoes, side of cut up red peppers, side of carrot sticks, side of strawberries.
