Za'atar Pita Burgers

Za'atar Pita Burgers

with Zucchini Fries and Dill Tzatziki

Za’atar, a Middle Eastern spice blend composed of sumac,sesame, thyme, and a variety of other dried herbs, infuses these burgers with a unique, almost woodsy aroma. A mixture of yogurt, dill, lemon, and cucumber makes for a bright, tangy tzatziki sauce. It’s the perfect condiment for crispy oven-baked zucchini fries.


Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

Baking Sheet
Small Bowl
Large Pan


make the zucchini fries

Make the zucchini fries: preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cut the zucchini into 3-inch sticks (like French fries!). Place panko in a small bowl with a large pinch of salt and pepper. Toss zucchini on a baking sheet with 1 tablespoon olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Coat each stick evenly in the panko, pressing to adhere, and return to the baking sheet. Place baking sheet in the oven for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown and crispy.

cut the cucumber

Meanwhile, peel the cucumber, then halve lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds with a spoon, then dice one half. Thinly slice the remaining half into half moons. Roughly chop the dill. Zest and halve the lemon. Mince or grate the garlic

make the dill tzatziki

Make the dill tzatziki: in a small bowl, mix together the yogurt, lemon zest, a squeeze of lemon, 1/3 cup diced cucumber, half the za’atar, half the chopped dill, and half the garlic (or to taste.) Season with salt and pepper.

make the burgers

Make the burgers: in a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, remaining garlic, and remaining za’atar. Season with salt and pepper. Form mixture into evenly-sized patties. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the patties to the pan and cook 3-5 minutes per side, until cooked to desired doneness.


While the burgers cook, slice the pita in half and place in the oven to toast for 1-2 minutes.


Stuff the pitas with the burgers, sliced cucumber, the remainingdill, and a dollop of dill tzatziki. Serve the pita burgers alongside the zucchini fries, with the remaining dill tzatziki for dipping. Enjoy!
