Instructions Checklist
  • 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°F* and pitas are heated through, turning once halfway through grilling.

  • 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.

*Tip:

The internal color of a burger is not a reliable doneness indicator. A chicken or turkey patty cooked to 165°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.
