Garlic Feta Burgers

Garlic Feta Burgers

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
  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat or set grill pan to heat on a medium-high burner.
  2. Combine the ground beef, Worsterschire sauce, salt and pepper in a bowl and stir until well-combined.
  3. Add the garlic, feta, and oregano to the meat mixture and squish all around until well-incroporated.
  4. Divide the meat mixture into 4 patties, using either your hands or a fancy burger press like Bill.
  5. Grill burgers for 8-10 minutes, flipping once halfway through cooking.
  6. 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.
