{Stud Muffin} Greek Turkey Wraps

09 November 2012

 Since I don't eat red meat and Micah is trying to stay away from it, we are having to get pretty creative with turkey, chicken and fish. Micah is a huge fan of Greek food, and I approach it cautiously because of the heavy lamb use. To get me to try it, he made this one day and told me it was just a Greek version of a turkey burger. I jumped in happily, and after I had polished off a wrap, he informed me that all the flavors were Greek. I was pretty impressed, and because the recipe is fairly easy, he wanted to share with you guys. 


Turkey Patty
1 package ground turkey
1/2 bell pepper
1 slice of bread
1/4 cup of milk
1/4 red onion
1/4 cup green onion tops
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1 egg


Yogurt Sauce
1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt (I use Fage)
Juice from 1 large lemon
6 mint leaves
1 large basil leaf
1/4 cup diced cucumbers
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

4 Naan breads, sliced in half
Spinach leaves
Sliced tomato
EVOO

1. Fine chop mint and basil leaves for yogurt sauce

2. Combine all yogurt sauce ingredients in medium bowl and whisk together

3. Refrigerate sauce while preparing meal 

4. Heat oven on lowest setting and place Naan bread on pan to warm

5. Soak slice of bread in milk in large mixing bowl until ready to mix turkey ingredients

6. Chop onions, bell peppers and green onions into very fine mixture

7. Combine all turkey patty ingredients in bowl with bread using hands until evenly distributed

8. Heat large skillet on high with light coating of EVOO in pan

9. Form small coaster sized turkey patty around 1/2" thick and brown evenly until firm on both sides

10. Place in container on top of paper towel as finished to maintain heat

11. Assemble Naan wrap by spreading sauce on bread, add spinach leaves, sliced tomatoes and turkey patty and enjoy!
