Grilled Turkey Gyros

Directions

  1. For patties, in a large bowl combine egg, turkey, onion, bread crumbs, garlic, coriander, cumin, salt, and pepper. Shape mixture into 12 patties, flattening each to about 1/2-inch thickness. Brush all sides of the patties with olive oil. Wrap pita bread rounds in foil.
  2. For a charcoal or gas grill, grill patties and foil-wrapped pita bread on the greased rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat about 6 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into each patty registers 165 degrees F* and pitas are heated through, turning once halfway through grilling.
  3. Place three patties on each pita bread round. Top with cucumber slices, tomato, and parsley. Drizzle with Cucumber-Yogurt Sauce. Fold pitas around fillings; secure with toothpicks.

From the Test Kitchen

*Tip:

The internal color of a burger is not a reliable doneness indicator. A chicken or turkey patty cooked to 165 degrees F is safe, regardless of color. To measure the doneness of a patty, insert an instant-read thermometer through the side to the center of the patty.

Cucumber-Yogurt Sauce

Directions

  1. In a small bowl combine yogurt, cucumber, tahini, garlic, and salt. Cover and chill for at least 20 minutes.
