These delicious burgers are made with bulgur, keeping them juicy and healthy. The burgers can be topped with Mediterranean condiments such as tzatziki or more traditional toppings - either way, the flavour is fantastic!
Pour ½ cup (125 mL) boiling water over dry bulgur and leave 5-10 minutes until water is absorbed.
Beat egg and mix with ground chicken in bowl. Sprinkle in dry mustard, pepper and salt and mix well.
Shape into 6 equal size patties. Store burgers in the refrigerator until ready to grill.
Spray BBQ grill with vegetable oil cooking spray and preheat on medium heat. Grill burgers with the lid closed until a thermometer inserted into the centre of the burger reads 165ºF (74ºC) - about 9 minutes per side.
To serve, place a lettuce leaf on bottom of bun and top with yogurt sauce (below). More traditional eaters can enjoy their burger with the usual accompaniments.
To make sauce stir together plain yogurt, mayonnaise and ground coriander.
Stir in fresh minced parsley, chopped tomato and thinly sliced green onions.
Bulgur wheat adds fibre and nutrients to traditional burgers and is not detectable.
