Athens Burger

My husband is in the U.S. Army. We are stationed overseas in Germany. Because we live in Europe, we have the opportunity to experiencing the delectable cuisine of many different countries. We are particularly fond of Greek food. This recipe was born when I wanted to create a hamburger that brought together all the great Greek flavors that we love. Hope you love it too.


1 pound ground sirloin
4 oz coarsely crumbled feta cheese
4 oz coarsely chopped pitted Kalamata olives
1 tsp fresh dried oregano
1 clove of garlic minced
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
4 fresh Kaiser Rolls, sliced
1 sliced tomato tzatziki sauce (store bought or home made)


Mix sirloin, feta cheese, olives, oregano, garlic and pepper together in a bowl. Divide meat mixture into 4 equal portions. Form portions into individual hamburger patties. Cook patties on grill for 4 minutes on each side for medium doneness. While patties are cooking, slice tomato. Just before patties are done, lightly toast Kaiser Rolls on grill. When hamburgers are desired doneness, remove from grill and place on toasted roll. Top each patty with a tablespoon of Tzaziki sauce and a tomato slice
