  • Author: Optavia
  • Total Time: 30 Minutes
  • Yield: 4 Servinge 1x

Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ lbs. 90% lean ground beef
  • 1 tsp salt, divided
  • ½ tsp black pepper, divided
  • 2 tsp crushed garlic, divided
  • 1 scallion, trimmed and minced
  • 1 tbsp capers, minced
  • 3 oz. low-fat crumbled feta
  • 1 ½ English cucumbers (about 1 ¼ lbs.)
  • ½ cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 8 large lettuce leaves

Instructions

  • Combine the beef with half of the salt, pepper, and crushed garlic. Add the scallions and capers and mix well.
  • Carefully fold in the crumbled feta, and shape the beef mixture into 8 even-sized patties; set aside.
  • To make the tzatziki, grate the cucumber into a colander and combine with the remaining salt. Allow cucumber to drain in the colander for about 10 minutes. With a kitchen tower, squeeze excess moisture from the cucumbers and place in a bowl.
  • Broil the beef patties on high for about 5 minutes to an internal temperature of about 165 degrees F, flipping once to achieve even cooking and browning.
  • Server burgers on a large lettuce leaf with tzatziki.
