You better get a napkin and some utensils for this one! Mmmmmm, Greek-style feta burgers are AMAZING! Take a juicy beef burger and give it a Mediterranean-style twist with briny, crumbly feta cheese mixed right into the patties. Serve it a on a toasted bun along with a dollop of cucumber yogurt and sliced roasted peppers for rich flavor and creamy texture in every bite. Oh, and what’s this on the side? None other than my famous roasted potatoes seasoned with oregano, lemon juice, and lots of garlic to add even more zesty flavor to this dish.
While I’m not too pleased with how the photo turned out, I must say that this meal is still the best I’ve ever had.
Ingredients for the best meal ever
- 10 oz Ground Beef
- 2 Potato Buns
- ¾ lb Red Or Golden Potatoes
- 1 Lemon
- 1 clove Garlic
- 1½ oz Feta Cheese
- ½ cup Tzatziki (Cucumber-Yogurt Sauce)
- 1 oz Sliced Roasted Red Peppers
- 1 tsp Whole Dried Oregano
Recipe for the best meal ever
Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the potatoes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Transfer the sliced potatoes to a sheet pan. Top with the juice of 2 lemon wedges; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and the oregano. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer. Roast 22 to 24 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.
While the potatoes roast, crumble the cheese into a medium bowl. Add the beef; season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine. Form the mixture into two 1/2-inch-thick patties. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties and cook 4 to 5 minutes per side (flipping carefully, as the oil may splatter), or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a work surface.
While the patties cook, halve the buns. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester, finely grate into a paste (or use the small side of a box grater).
Add the buns, cut side down, to the pan of reserved fond. Toast on medium-high 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a work surface.
Transfer the roasted potatoes to a medium bowl. Add the juice of the remaining lemon wedges, a drizzle of olive oil, and as much of the garlic paste as you’d like. Toss to coat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Assemble the burgers using the toasted buns, tzatziki, cooked patties, and peppers. Serve the burgers with the finished potatoes. Enjoy!
