"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."

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 mo...

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 be...

I Have made this burger several times at this point and it never gets old. My son especially loves them. This is one of the few dishes he requests by name, and of course this makes me feel good....

Great flavor!

Awesome recipe! I ground up the burger instead though and turned it into a wrap with tomato, lettuce and kalamata olives. Avocado would be good with it too!

Really liked this recipe - it's a flavor far enough away from what you normally have in hamburgers, so it's a nice change. The Greek gyro taste is definitely there! Agree with LindaT that they w...
