Hello, lovely blog followers!

What better way to start this new  phase of less-recipe-centered food blogging with a…recipe.  Whoops!  Whatevs, it’s worth it.

I’m sure you’re familiar with every turkey burger in the world, and trust me there’s a few.  But one of my favorite types are those of the ethnic variety (well, my idea of an ethnic variety), and thus my undying love for Mediterranean-inspired burgers knows know bounds.  But sometimes I like to be semi-hipster, and as such, Mediterranean Turkey Meatballs were born.  Meatballs are essentially mini hamburgers (and we all like mini things, am I right??), and though many people enjoy meatballs on pasta, these are best served in pita wrap form.  With copious amounts of Tzatziki (aka crack), feta, cucumbers, tomatoes, avocados, and whatever your foodie soul desires.

They’re packed with yummy Mediterranean goodness like sun-dried tomatoes, herbs, red onions, and MORE!!! They’re mini.  They’re covered with Tzatziki.  They’re hipster hamburgers.  What more could you want in a meal and/or appetizer??
