Greek Burgers just in time for Father’s Day

Sometimes instead of eating out for special occasions, I like to celebrate by making a meal at home. It feels less rushed. We get to visit more. We avoids crowds.  Then when I think of dads, I think they typically like meat. At least the dad’s I know do. So how about make a Greek burger for dad this weekend in honor of Father’s Day?

I made these by pan frying, but grilling out would be fun too. We served them on ciabatta rolls because that’s what we hand in the pantry. I realize ciabatta bread doesn’t immediately bring Greek images to mind, but how about a regular hamburger bun or pita bread? This burger does not disappoint.

Greek Burgers

For the patties:

1 lb ground beef

1/2 cup chopped red peppers

1/2 cup feta cheese crumbles

1 Tbsp chopped fresh dill

1 Tbsp McCormick Mediterranean Herb Seasoning

1/2 tsp each salt and pepper

For the toppings: Any combo of  Tzatziki Sauce, sliced cucumber, tomatoes, and red onion.

Mix all of the ingredients for the patties together in a medium bowl. Divide the meat into four equal portions and form patties.

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the patties until cooked through, about 7 minutes on each side.

Serve on bread and use ingredients listed for toppings to finish.

Enjoy!

  1. God these look so good……
    I am a super big fan of using dill with beef, by the way. have you ever tried just garlic and dill and brushed on olive oil for a steak marinade? It’s great.
