I was craving some Greek food one night, but was also interested in a cheeseburger. I had some Mediterranean-esque ingredients in my fridge. Thankfully, the burgers came out AMAZING! Every person that has had the burgers though they were amazing, too. Enjoy! Serve with yogurt sauce, toasted hamburger buns, lettuce, and tomato. Try also with ground lamb.

Loved it! It brought me back to my favorite little Greek restaurant from back home. Following previous comments, I did add an egg. I also prepared them as meatballs instead of burgers and put them in a pita wrap. For the side dish, I made the Greek Style Potatoes I got from this site a couple years ago. This is definitely a make again meal.

I liked the flavor, but these were very fragile due to the amount of feta... and I even cut back on it when I was adding it. I think less cheese or adding an egg might help them stay together more

These burgers have GREAT Greek flavor to them. I used store bought tzatziki sauce. I didn't have any goat cheese, so I only used feta. Also, I added about a tbsp. of the tzatziki sauce to the beef and an egg to bind. In retrospect, I should have added some breadcrumbs. My burgers were on the softer side, so don't expect a firm texture like you get with regular burgers. Hubby loved the flavor, but would have liked a more firm texture. To replicate gyro style, we added a sliced tomato to the bun, beef patty on top, topped with a bit of tzatziki sauce. We don't like onions, but for those that do, an onion slice added to the burger would probably be good too. Yummy change of pace from regular burgers.
