Greek Turkey Burgers

Below is the recipe and steps to preparing this Mediterranean meal.

Extra virgin olive oil, for rubbing

¼ cup milk

2 slices whole wheat bread, crusts removed

1 lb ground turkey

1 tsp. (heaping) Garlic Puree

Kosher salt

Fresh ground black pepper

¼ cup Cucumber Yogurt Dip

4 whole wheat English muffins, split and toasted

½ lemon

8 (¼-inch-thick) slices beefsteak tomato

8 thin-sliced red onion rings

½ cup packed arugula

3 Tbsp. loosely packed chopped mixed herbs (dill, parsley, mint)

Line a small tray with parchment paper and rub it all over with olive oil.
Combine the milk with ¼ cup water in a large shallow bowl. Add the bread, using your hands to soak it. Squeeze out any excess liquid.
Combine the bread, turkey, and garlic puree in a medium bowl. Mix with your hands until just combined. Handle it as little as possible. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions. Shape each portion into a ½-inch-thick patty, place on the tray, and rub olive oil over each.
Preheat a gas grill or grill pan over medium heat. Season both sides of each patty with salt and pepper, then grill until soft to the touch for burgers that are just cooked through.
Spread the dip on 4 of the English muffin halves. Top with a patty followed by a squeeze of lemon juice, 2 slices of tomato, red onion, arugula, herbs, a sprinkle of salt and pepper, and the muffin top.
