Broiled Greek Burger with Lettuce Wrap
Broiled Greek Burger With Lettuce Wrap
YIELD: 4 SERVINGS
TOTAL TIME: 30 MINUTES
1 ¼ lbs. 90% lean ground beef
1 tsp salt, divided
½ tsp black pepper, divided
2 tsp crushed garlic, divided
1 scallion, trimmed and minced
1 tbsp capers, minced
3 oz. low-fat crumbled feta
1 ½ English cucumbers (about 1 ¼ lbs.)
½ cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt
8 large lettuce leaves
Combine the beef with half of the salt, pepper, and crushed garlic. Add the scallions and capers and mix well.
Carefully fold in the crumbled feta, and shape the beef mixture into 8 even-sized patties; set aside.
To make the tzatziki, grate the cucumber into a colander and combine it with the remaining salt, pepper and garlic. Allow cucumber to drain in the colander for about 10 minutes.
With a kitchen towel, squeeze excess moisture from the cucumbers and place them in a bowl with the yogurt and mix.
Broil the beef patties on high for about 5 minutes to an internal temperature of about 165 degrees F, flipping once to achieve even cooking and browning.
Server burgers on a large lettuce leaf with tzatziki.
