Grilled Greek Turkey Patty Sandwich

I made these for dinner, originally intending to make Cat Cora's version, but didnt have all her ingredients, didnt want the sauce...etc. Here's my version.

 3/4  cup bread crumbs (I used whole grain baguettes that were leftover, pulsing        them in the mini chopper)
1 pound ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup minced shallot
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander 
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt1 tsp dried oregano
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Flatbread, cut into squares
  • thinly sliced seedless cucumbers
  • plain greek yogurt
  • arugula
  • avacado slices
Preheat grill to medium-high heat 
Combine first 12 ingredients in a large mixing bowl, stirring until well blended. Divide mixture into 16 portions; shape each portion into a cylinder. Brush each meatball evenly with olive oil.
Grill meatballs, turning once, 8-12 minutes or until cooked through. Or, you can  sautee in olive oil in nonstick pan, finish cooking in a 350 degree oven.
Take a piece of flat bread and spread with yogurt, cucumber, avacado and arugula. Place a patty on top and fold in half.
