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.
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.
