Feta-Avocado Turkey Burger Pitas

Here’s a tasty Pita Burger to enjoy on this last (unofficial) day of summer.  Turkey burgers stuffed with feta cheese and avocado enjoyed in a tasty whole wheat pita with lettuce, tomato, and a cumin-mayo to give ’em just a bit of kick.


If you prefer, you can serve these burgers on a plain old wheat bun or even naked, or wrapped in lettuce.  But we’ve had enough plain old buns and enough naked burgers this summer.   The pitas are a nice change-up while still keeping them healthy. 

Happy Labor Day!  See you later, summer.
Feta-Avocado Turkey Burger Pitas
For the turkey burgers:
1 lb ground turkey burger
1 avocado, diced
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 tsp garlic salt
3 tbs bread crumbs
3 tbs diced green onion
salt and pepper
Served with:
1 pkg whole wheat pitas 
2 tomatoes, sliced
1 head of lettuce, separated
Spicy Mayo
1/3 cup light Mayo
1-2 tsp cumin (depending on how strong you like it)
In a large bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients together, mixing with your hands until evenly incorporated.  Shape into 6 patties.  Season both sides with salt and pepper. 
Lightly brush each side of the patties with extra virgin olive oil.  Place patties on the grill (high heat), cooking about 6 minutes each side until cooked through.  
Spread some of the spicy mayo in each pita pocket and place a turkey burger in each.  Garnish with lettuce and tomatoes.
