    This was pretty good... too heavy on the onion tho. Liked the yogurt sauce, but if you have your own tzaziki recipe you like, use that.

    It turned out pretty good i would just use less onions in the recipe.
    Super easy, quick & delicious! Will definitely add this to my “weekday recipes” - very fast to make after a long day at work. I broiled the patties in the oven and they came out juicy and flavorful. In the yogurt sauce, I omitted the sugar, but added salt, pepper and a nice squeeze of fresh lemon. I prefer a more tart, traditional, tzatziki-style yogurt sauce... It was perfect! The fresh tomato, onion and lettuce gave it a fresh crunch. My husband is Greek and this dinner passed the test with flying colors! Will definitely make again and again. A nice change from the weekday meal “norm”.

    It was quick and easy to make. My picky husband loves it so it gets 5 stars from me! I think the yogurt would taste better with a little salt.
