When Bill and I first tried this recipe for Garlic Feta Burgers from Espresso and Cream a few months ago, we were blown away! They’re a great savory dish with a definite Greek flavor that we love. Rather than making a filled burger as the original recipe recommends, I prefer a Feta-studded burger to get a spread of cheese in every bite. These burgers are quick to make and easy to grill either on an outdoor grill or on the stovetop using a grill pan, like we do. Bill was extra-excited about this recipe popping up on the meal plan because it gave him a chance to use his Sur la Table burger mold and Lodge cast iron bacon press as well. The boy loves himself some kitchen gadgets, and I love how adorable that mold is : ) On to the recipe!
Garlic Feta Burgers
- 1 pound ground beef (we go with 93/7 for a delish burger)
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 2 ounces crumbled feta cheese
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- ½ teaspoon dried oregano
- Preheat grill to medium-high heat or set grill pan to heat on a medium-high burner.
- Combine the ground beef, Worsterschire sauce, salt and pepper in a bowl and stir until well-combined.
- Add the garlic, feta, and oregano to the meat mixture and squish all around until well-incroporated.
- Divide the meat mixture into 4 patties, using either your hands or a fancy burger press like Bill.
- Grill burgers for 8-10 minutes, flipping once halfway through cooking.
- Enjoy burgers atop burger buns or a Greek salad.
Because of the saltiness of the Feta, I find that these burgers are well-paired with just ketchup on a burger bun or atop a nice, fresh Greek salad with tomatoes and olives. And don’t just save these for warm months! Garlic Feta Burgers are great when you want a full belly because it’s cold outside.
