Grilled Turkey Gyros
Ingredients
  • 1  egg, lightly beaten
  • 12  ounces  uncooked ground turkey breast
  • 1/4  cup  finely chopped onion
  • 1  tablespoon  fine dry bread crumbs
  • 2  cloves garlic, minced
  • 1  teaspoon  ground coriander
  • 1/2  teaspoon  ground cumin
  • 1/8  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/8  teaspoon  ground black pepper
  • 1  tablespoon  olive oil
  • 4  whole-wheat pita bread rounds
  • 1  cup  thinly sliced cucumber
  • 1  cup  diced tomato
  • 2  tablespoons  snipped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
  • 1  recipe Cucumber-Yogurt Sauce
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.

  • 2  cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/8  teaspoon  salt
Directions

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