This turkey burger is seriously delicious. It turned out better than I ever expected. It is moist, packed with flavor, and comes in at under 200 calories. I think the magic happens when you add the feta and black olives, which keep the turkey from drying out like it traditionally does in a turkey burger. Served up with this simple yogurt feta sauce and it is one delicious and easy dinner. You can add cucumber to the yogurt sauce to make a feta tzatziki or leave it out all together. Layer in a toasted bun, wrap it up in lettuce, or serve it with a big salad.

I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I have never eaten a turkey burger until now. I was a burger snob who thought a "burger" meant ground beef and definitely had to be eaten with ketchup. Well, I am a changed woman! This is delicious! I would rather eat this than a traditional burger! The feta yogurt sauce is the perfect condiment. This is my new favorite, and I will fix it again and again!
