The burger craze is at a high pitch and I could not be happier- Gourmands and Executive Chefs agree, a burger is the soul of good food- I love to be creative and use ground lamb or turkey. This Greek burger is perfect to make in a slider version for Super Bowl Sunday.

Serves 4

1 ½ ground turkey breast

4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled

½ cup finely chopped red onion

1 tsp. oregano

2 Tsp. lemon zest

Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper

Cooking spray

½ cup grated cucumber (English cucumber is best)

6 ounces fat free Greek yogurt

1-2 TBSP. fresh chopped mint

4 French hamburger rolls or mini rolls

Stir together first 4 ingredients. Shape into patties

Heat griddle pan and season burgers with salt and pepper. Spray pan with cooking spray

Add patties, cook about 4-5 minutes on each side until done.

Stir together cucumber, yogurt, mint and lemon zest and salt in a small bowl

Top burgers and serve with shredded iceberg lettuce and sliced tomato
