Pita bread makes the perfect container
for almost any hand-held food including traditional hamburgers.
A tangy and refreshing yogurt sauce completes this Greek-inspired
Pita Burgers with
- 1 pound lean ground beef
1/3 cup chopped unpeeled cucumber
1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
2 teaspoons pepper-herb mix (see below)
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 pita breads, halved
1 medium tomato, cut into 8 thin slices
- Combine cucumber, yogurt, ½ teaspoon
of the herb mix and salt in a small bowl; set aside.
- Divide ground beef into 4 equal portions;
shape into patties 4 inches in diameter. Sprinkle remaining 1½
teaspoons herb mix over both sides of patties.
- Meanwhile, heat a large nonstick frying
pan over medium heat for 5 minutes. Pan-broil patties 6 to 8
minutes, turning once. Season with salt, if desired.
- Heat pita halves in toaster until lightly
toasted. Place a beef patty in each pita half; add 2 tomato slices.
Add cucumber sauce to serve.
2 tablespoons dried basil leaves
1 tablespoon lemon pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon dried savory leaves
1½ teaspoons rubbed sage
- Combine all ingredients. Store, covered,
in an airtight container. Shake before using to re-blend spices.
Makes 4 servings.
