The best part… it only took 15 minutes to prepare from start to finish! This is a great option for a busy week night meal because it has minimal ingredients and leaves little mess to clean up.

Greek Pita Burgers with Tzatziki Sauce

My boyfriend decided to make us dinner last night and whipped up these tasty little greek burgers. He found this recipe on Betty Crocker and we changed a few things to make it a healthy meal. I am a big fan of greek food and I love tzatziki sauce. I never thought about making my own sauce but it was really easy! This recipe was a nice change from our usual burgers and it was a fairly simple meal to prepare.
