While turkey burgers don’t always elicit an overwhelming response to the “What’s for dinner?” question in my house, a few tips have elevated my turkey burger game and have made this next flatbread recipe my household’s new bff: best flatbread Foldit.
We already know how healthy turkey meat is, but the reason I really love it is that it’s also quite versatile and takes stronger, herbal flavors so well. That means bring on the herbs! Dried oregano, loads of fresh mint, and a bit of garlic make a Greek style patty that shimmers with flavor inside the flatbread. I can grill these up, or just broil them in the oven if it’s still a bit too cold outside. This burger is a great way to transition into a lighter, summertime diet, too, without feeling a pinch of hunger.
Instead of the usual heavy mayonnaise routine, I make a yogurt and feta based sauce that includes garlic, lemon, and more mint to lighten things up without skimping on the flavor.
People who follow Mediterranean style diets have increased longevity and live happier lives, (or so I have read,) but I ask: how could adding olive oil, lean fats, green herbs, and feta cheese be bad, especially folded up in a whole grain flatbread? This turkey burger has it all, and likely will make you happier for eating it. And that counts for something.
Dried herbs work just fine in this recipe, so I don’t worry about searching for fresh if I don’t have time or patience. The moisture of the turkey and the yogurt will revive them.
So whether you make this best flatbread foldit for your f, your bf, your fbf, or your bff, you can be sure they’ll love it down to the last b. (That’s bite!)

Greek Turkey Burger Foldit
- 1 Flatout Foldit or Hungry Girl
- 1/4 pound ground turkey
- 2-4 fresh mint leaves, chopped, (or 1/4 teaspoon dried)
- 1 teaspoon fresh oregano, chopped, (or 1/2 teaspoon dried)
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon feta cheese, crumbled
- 1 tablespoon plain yogurt (Greek style is good)
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1/4 lemon, juiced
- 1 slice tomato
- 1 slice red onion
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- Nonstick cooking spray
In a small bowl, combine ground turkey meat with half of the garlic, oregano, and salt and pepper. Mix well. Form into a patty and thoroughly cook on a grill, grill pan, or under a broiler, using nonstick cooking spray if necessary.
To make the sauce, mix together the remaining garlic, yogurt, olive oil, feta, mint and lemon juice in a separate bowl.
Heat Foldit flatbread in a pan, using the non stick cooking spray as needed, about 30 seconds on each side, until warm and flexible. Remove from pan, then pile on the turkey burger, tomato, red onion, and feta yogurt sauce. Fold in half.
