Greek Burger

A greek Salad was my inspiration for this burger. We had this for dinner with fresh corn on the cob. It was oh so delicious.

Greek Burger

  • 1.3 lb. ground turkey or ground beef, 93% lean
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 5 Hamburger buns
  • garlic flavored olive oil or olive oil
  • 5 Tbsp. feta cheese
  • 5-10 pepperoncini peppers, sliced thin
  • red onion, 5 very thin slices
  • cucumber, 15 very thin slices
  • 1 large tomato, 5 thin slices
  • Kalamata olives, whole, for garnish.
Mix together first 5 ingredients very well with your hands. When mixed well divide evenly into 5 portions. Shape into burger patties and refrigerate until ready to cook. I like to do these a few hours in advance to let the seasonings meld.

Cook on hot grill for about 8- 10 minutes or until no longer pink in center. For the last minute brush inside of HB buns and grill with olive oil for about 1 minute. Place burgers on buns and top each one with 1 Tbsp. feta cheese, pepperoncini's, 1 red onion slice , 3 cucumber slices, and 1 tomato slice. Garnish on side with olives.

Shady Brook Farm is my favorite brand ground turkey.
