Greek Burger

Hi. I didn't know what the introduction was for exactly. I am a 26 year old Computer Engineer who loves cooking. I have been watching Food Network as long as I have had it. I saw the previous year's build a better burger on tv after having surgery. I spent the next few weeks making a variety of burgers. I took any flavors from recipes I enjoy. I tried a greek, italian, and asian burger. The only one that the six people that agreed to try them liked the greek. I even tried it a few different ways. I hope you like my recipe.


1/2 cup pitted green greek olives chopped
1/2 cup sun dried tomato and basil feta cheese chopped
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 cup greek salad dressing
1.5 lbs. ground chuck
1/2 med cucumber peeled and chopped
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cumin
1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
1 med tomato sliced
romaine lettuce
6 sesame seed buns


Light gas grill medium heat about 350 degrees. Mix the chopped green greek olives, salt and the feta cheese with the beef. Mix together until the olives and feta cheese are evenly mixed into the beef. Split the beef into six balls. Make a well in each ball with your thumb. Fill each well with 1 Tablespoon of greek salad dressing. Take each ball and mix the greek salad dressing evenly into the ball. Now take each ball and form a pattie. Place burgers on the grill. While cooking make the cucumber sauce. The burgers should take approximately 5 minutes per side. Mix the cucumber, garlic, salt cumin, ground pepper in a bowl. Slice tomato for topping and break the lettuce into burger sized slices. After taking the burgers off the grill, place each pattie in a bun. Top the burger first with 2 Tablespoons of cucumber sauce, 1 slice of tomato and 1 piece of romaine lettuce.


I hope you enjoy my recipe!
