Greek Burger

We recently ate dinner at a local burger place and my husband had a Greek burger with feta cheese, kalamata olives, and roasted garlic on top. It was very delicious and full of my favorite flavors so I decided to recreate it at home. I loved the chunks of roasted garlic, salty feta, tangy kalamata olives, and spicy pepperocini. The burgers were a huge hit with my husband and I (my children opted for plain burgers – their loss). These Greek burgers were delicious with my homemade Baked Onion Rings.

Roast garlic (click link above for instructions). Once the garlic is roasted, remove each clove from the skin and chop into pieces.
Combine the ground beef with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, garlic powder, and oregano, to taste. Make four burger patties.
Heat a grill pan over medium high heat and coat with cooking spray. Add the burger patties and cook for 3 minutes on each side or until you reach your desired degree of doneness.
Place the burger on the toasted bun and top with feta cheese, roasted garlic, kalamata olives, pepperoncinis, red onion slice, and tomato slice. Top with the remaining bun and serve. Enjoy.

    Looks lovely! I make a variant of that where I chop the meet and melt the cheese on it, then put that on a pita with the olives, chopped tomatoes, shredded lettuce, and topped with sub dressing. ^_^

    Fetta is actually really delicious on burgers.
