    Superquick, followed the recipe except added clove of garlic to the sauce. Microwaved the onion in a bit of broth to soften. Served the tomato-cuke-olive salad but with non-fat Greek dressing. Not bad.

    We love this, make it often, and make the burgers exactly as the recipe states. Instead of the mayo-based sauce I make one using plain Greek-style yogurt, diced cucumber, cumin and lemon juice.

    Tasty, Tasty! Used chicken instead of lamb, and used Lavash bread instead of Pita (Lavash only 50 cal per serving!) What a tasty dish. This would be a great addition to a summer BBQ or a Fall tail-gate party. The pepper added a hit of heat, and spices combined made the kitchen smell heavenly. With the changes, I got the calories down to 349 per serving.

    I didn't make the recipe exactly, added roasted red peppers to the meat mixture and some other things, but the pita burger idea is great. I also made a cucumber raita instead of the mayo. But the recipe sparked my imagination for sure!

    DH said almost as good as our local gyro place. I did use greek yogurt, cucumber, garlic and lemon juice for the sauce. Even my 4 year old liked this! Yum

    Too me these were a little bland. The meat had good flavor and the sauce was excellent, but it was more a lunch recipe to me, instead of dinner.

    Made this w/ ground chicken breast instead of turkey and lamb. The sause was modified severly!!! Made w/ plain Greek yogurt instead of mayo...added tons of freshly chopped garlic and ingredients listed. Definately needs the garlic!!

    I made the burger as directed and it was very tasty. I subbed greek yogurt for mayo and added garlic, to make it a bit lighter. If I were to make it again, I would add in chopped tomatoes to the salad

    Like another member, I added some minced garlic. Also, minced fresh ginger instead of dry. I used turkey only, so to hold form, I added 1 egg and 1/4 cup PANKO crumbs. Greek yogurt instead of mayo. Served with: baby romaine, tomato slices and slices of FETA. The cinnamon is a great ingredient in this recipe. Really really tasty!
