Roast the potatoes
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Thinly slice the potatoes crosswise into ¼ inch rounds. On a lined sheet pan, toss the potatoes with a generous drizzle of oil; season with S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast in the oven, flipping halfway through, 22 to 24 minutes, until golden brown.

Mise en place
While the potatoes roast, zest and juice the lemon. Small-dice the cucumbers. Small-dice the tomatoes. In a medium bowl, make the chopped salad by combining the cucumbers, tomatoes, ⅔ of the lemon juice and 3 tbsp olive oil; season with S&P.

Prepare & cook the kefta patties
In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, feta, remaining lemon juice and as much lemon zest as you’d like; season with the spice blend and S&P. Gently mix to combine and form into 4 patties of equal size. In a large pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high. Add the patties* and cook, 3 to 5 minutes per side, until cooked through.

Finish & serve
Cut off the top ¼ of each pita to open the pita pocket and reserve for a snack or another recipe. Fill each pita pocket with a cooked patty, a spoonful of hummus and a spoonful of chopped salad. Divide the kefta pita sandwiches and crispy potato rounds between your plates. Serve any remaining chopped salad and hummus on the side. Bon appétit!
