Let's Make It
Heat oven to 450ºF.
Mix turkey, tomatoes, parsley, garlic and 1/2 cup cheese just until blended; shape into 12 (1/2-inch thick) patties. Place on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake 8 to 10 min. or until done (165ºF). Meanwhile, combine remaining cheese and tzatziki; spread onto cut sides of buns.
Fill buns with burgers, spinach and peppers.
Cooking Ground Meat
Ground beef, veal, lamb and pork should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F, while ground chicken and turkey should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165°F. For accurate results, use a digital instant-read food thermometer, inserting tip 1/2 inch into center of meat. If the meat piece is too thin to check from the top, insert thermometer sideways into the piece of meat.
Substitute your favorite salad greens for the spinach.
If this recipe makes more than what you need, you can freeze part of the turkey mixture for up to 1 month. Thaw in refrigerator before using as directed. You can then shape the turkey mixture into patties as directed, or instead shape it into meatballs or a meatloaf and bake at 350ºF until done.
