  4. 4 Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add burgers and cook, turning once, until instant-read thermometer inserted into side of burger registers 165°F, 10–12 minutes.
  5. 5 Place pitas on 4 plates. Top with burgers, lettuce leaves, tomato slices, and cucumber slices. Spoon yogurt mixture evenly on top of burgers.

Notes
Bulgur wheat is the main ingredient in tabbouleh salad, and it makes a healthy, high-fiber addition to salads, soups, burgers, and meat loaves.
