You are going to love these Greek style chicken, pork burgers
studded with herbs and feta cheese!
Great dinner when served with Quinoa Couscous Salad
Burgers are really just ideas … following are the ingredients in my burgers, with an approximate portion plan:
equal portions ground chicken and hot italian sausage meat (approx 1 pound each)
2 tbsp minced basil
2 tbsp minced mint
1 large minced garlic clove
3 scallions, sliced fine
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tsp each of salt and pepper
Lightly toss all ingredients together until just mixed. Do not overmix your meat or it will end up with the texture of a meatloaf! Form burger patties and place onto lined baking sheet. Set aside, either in freezer or fridge until you are ready to grill and they have had time to rest.
Grill on greased surface until cooked through.
Grilled thin slices zucchini (lightly coated with olive oil, salt and pepper)
Grilled thick tomato slices (dusted with salt and pepper)
Coat each side of your pita style bun with a generous dollop of mint/dill yogurt sauce:
MINT/DILL YOGURT SAUCE
1 cup greek style yogurt
1/2 cup grated, drained cucumber
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp finely chopped dill
1 tbsp minced mint (try to say that a few times!)
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients, and put in fridge to set up and allow flavours to blend.
