Ingredients

  • For the Patties:
  • 1 lb ground chicken or turkey
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp each salt and pepper
  • For the toppings:
  • Sliced tomatoes, cucumbers and red onions
  • Leaf or iceberg lettuce
  • Crumbled feta cheese
  • Tzatziki sauce

Directions
