Hummus Turkey Burgers with Feta Tzatziki Sauce

I mentioned in yesterday's post that I needed hummus for a recipe.  This is the recipe that I was talking about.  I actually made these burgers the Monday of Hurricane Sandy.  I was trying to use up some of the food in the fridge and freezer thinking that we'd lose power.  Luckily, we did not....and we had these yummy burgers to eat.  Turkey burgers can be dry and flavorless.  These burgers had a lot of flavor as is, with the hummus, coriander, and cilantro.  Then you add on the tzatziki sauce (my daughter ate hers without) and it's even more flavorful.  My son loved the sauce on burger and everyone ate theirs up. This is a meal where the sauce and the burgers can be pre-made the night before and cooked for dinner the next day.

Hummus Turkey Burgers
recipe from Edesia's Notebook

Yield:  4 servings

¾ cup Greek yogurt or sour cream
½ cucumber, peeled, seeded, and diced small
1/3 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1 clove garlic, grated
1 tsp dried dill
1 lb. ground turkey
¼ cup prepared hummus, plus more for topping if desired
¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 tsp ground coriander
4 hamburger buns

Combine Greek yogurt or sour cream, cucumber, feta, garlic, and dill in a small bowl. Mix well. Refrigerate until ready to be used.

In a medium bowl, combine ground turkey, ¼ cup hummus, cilantro, and coriander. Mix until just combined. Divide into 4 equal portions and form into patties.

Grill burgers over medium-high heat, about 7 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Place burgers on buns and top with lettuce, tomato, prepared tzatziki sauce, and additional hummus, if desired.
