This was a really, really good recipe!! The only thing that I can say is that the meat falls apart on the grill if you turn it too much. My advice is to let it cook to a char or well done on the first side before turning it over. Also, it is a very rich flavor so have something nice to drink with it.


This recipe's great! i used it for our group project in garde manger class (cold kitchen and my groupmates totally loved it. Everyone asked for the recipe. i made a few alterations though... no italian bread crumbs? we just used plain bread crumbs and mixed 1/2 part italian seasoning. we also added a big pinch of salt and pepper. it totally brought out the flavor of the beef. And Instead of cooking it on the grill, we just seared it on a pan grill to get the beautiful grill marks then finished cooking the burgers in the oven for about 5-8min, it depends on your preferred doneness of the burger. instead of putting it on a bun, we wrapped it in tortilla wrap with lettuce, tomato slices and light mayo then put it on a hot dry pan to brown the tortilla and give it a nice crunch. :) awsome recipe! thanks a bunch.

I'm only giving three stars because I haven't tried this yet, but it sounds good. The only thing I can say is that these sound more like a Greek style burger, not much of anything "Italian" in it except for the bread crumbs. Kalamata olives and the feta cheese are used more so in Greek dishes. Anyways, this sounds really tasty and I'll have to give it a try soon.
