When Mumika called stating she was coming to town, I really didn’t know what to make her first night. I was sort of grasping at straws as I went through my list of recipes to try.
When I came across this one, I knew it would be fun and different. I like testing new things out when Mumika is around. She’s literally my guinea pig, whereas Bryan will lecture me for 30 minutes on why he doesn’t want or like fired rice for dinner.
It isn’t a true Greek burger because I used beef instead of lamb, but all the components come across as Greek.
So If you are tired of the same ole bacon cheese burger and want to try something a bit more adult, more gourmet, and more elegant, this Greek burger is definitely for you. You could even make sliders out of it as a appetizer when having company over.
1 pound ground meat beef
1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 cup feta cheese, divided
1/4 cup bread crumbs
2 1/2 tablespoons Greek Seasoning
1 bunch of spinach, torn
1/2 cup Tzatziki sauce
1 sliced tomato
1/2 sliced red onion
6 hamburger buns
