This seasoned ground turkey pita sandwich is light but also filling and makes a delicious lunch or dinner.

Ground Turkey Pita Sandwich

This easy-to-make sandwich is every bit as good, if not better than at a restaurant.

The main ingredient in this pita is ground turkey that’s seasoned with a number of spices and herbs.

The meat is formed in the shape of a “kabob” so that it fits nicely in the pita along with tomato, onion and lettuce.

It’s a simple sandwich that’s filling and tastes so good.

If you’re not a fan of mayo, feel free to add your favorite dressing instead.

About the Pita Bread

In this recipe, pita without a pocket used.

In the market, there are generally 2 types of pita bread to choose from.

  1. a pita pocket that can be opened (these are most often baked in the oven); and
  2. a pita without a pocket (like in this recipe) that are thicker and have a soft texture (these are generally baked on a hot surface)

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Ground turkey, Greek style pita bread (soft pitas), olive oil, granulated garlic, onion powder, dried parsley, dried oregano, dried red pepper flakes, ground cumin, salt, pepper, mayonnaise, dried dill, red onion, tomato and iceberg lettuce

HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE

A printable recipe with the measurements and instructions is located at the bottom of this post.

For the Ground Turkey:

In a large bowl, add the ground turkey, granulated garlic, onion powder, dried oregano, cumin, red pepper flakes, dried parsley, dried dill, salt and pepper.

With clean hands mix the meat mixture together.

Try not to handle the meat too much (or the texture of the meat could become dense).

Form the meat into 4 kabob-like shapes.

Then,

heat a large non-stick skillet on medium heat and add olive oil.

Carefully tilt the skillet a little bit to spread the olive oil around the bottom of the pan and…

…add the ground turkey “kabobs” to the pan.

When the bottom sides of the meat are browned (about 5 minutes), using a spatula turn the meat over to the other side.

Cover the skillet with a lid and let cook for another 5 minutes or until the meat is thoroughly cooked.

Be careful not to overcook the meat or it will be on the dry side.

Transfer the meat to a plate and let it sit for a few minutes to rest and seal in the juices.

For the Pitas:

Sprinkle pepper on top of the tomatoes and set aside for a moment.

Spread mayonnaise on one side of each pita.

Top each pita with 2 ground turkey “kabobs”.

Add sliced tomatoes and onions.

Top with thinly sliced or shredded lettuce.

Lightly drizzle olive oil on top of the meat.

Add a dash of salt and pepper on top, fold the pita into the shape of a taco and serve.

Then,

…serve.
