For today's burger, I chose a turkey burger seasoned with something unexpected: hummus! We LOVE hummus around here, my husband could eat a whole container in one sitting, so I knew this would be a hit. I got the burger recipe from Fried Ice and Donut Holes, but changed it up a bit. (Tzatziki sauce recipe is from Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice.)
Hummus Turkey Burgers with Feta Tzatziki Sauce
¾ cup Greek yogurt or sour cream
½ cucumber, peeled, seeded, and diced small
⅓ cup feta cheese, crumbled
1 clove garlic, grated
1 tsp dried dill
1 lb. ground turkey
¼ cup prepared hummus, plus more for topping if desired
¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 tsp ground coriander
4 hamburger buns
Combine Greek yogurt or sour cream, cucumber, feta, garlic, and dill in a small bowl. Mix well. Refrigerate until ready to be used.
In a medium bowl, combine ground turkey, ¼ cup hummus, cilantro, and coriander. Mix until just combined. Divide into 4 equal portions and form into patties.
Grill burgers over medium-high heat, about 7 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Place burgers on buns and top with lettuce, tomato, prepared tzatziki sauce, and additional hummus, if desired.
Makes 4 servings.
