Turkey Burger Gyros

This is one of my absolute favorite recipes. I adapted this recipe from one I found when looking for turkey burger ideas. I’ve always loved gyros, and these burgers offer a lot of the same flavors but are quick and easy to make at home. Thinly slice the burgers and serve them on warmed pita bread topped with lettuce, tomato, onion, and homemade tzatziki, and you have a delicious spin on a Greek favorite.
