Greek Burgers

These burgers are one of my favorites! I love Greek flavors. You can definitely entertain with this recipe.

Order of business- Put potatoes in oven first, then get the onions started before you cook the burgers. You can even make the Potato Salad first and serve it at room temperature.

Greek Burgers
2 lbs hamburger or ground lamb
1/3 cup shredded red onion
3 Tbsp chopped rosemary
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
salt
pepper
Mix together all of the ingredients and form into the patties. Cook on grill or in skillet until desired doneness.

Greek Potato Salad
2-3 cups chopped potatoes
1/4 cup calamata olives
1/4 cup feta cheese
2 Tbsp rosemary
1/4 cup olive oil
1/8 cup balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp dijon mustard
1 clove garlic minced
salt
pepper
Coat potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle with salt pepper. Roast potatoes in 400 degree oven until crispy on the outside and soft inside. Mix potatoes with feta, olives and rosemary. Mix together balsamic vinegar, garlic and mustard and whisk in olive oil to taste. Pour dressing over potatoes and mix well. Salad can be served warm or at room temperature.

Caramelized Onion
1 red onion sliced
olive oil
Saute onion in a little olive oil over medium low heat for thirty to forty minutes stirring occasionally.

Yogurt Mint Sauce
1 cup greek style yogurt
2 Tbsp fresh chopped mint
1 Tbsp lemon juice
salt
pepper
Mix together all of the ingredients and serve on burgers.

Garnishes
extra balsamic vinegar
tomato slices
feta

Plating it up: I like to serve these burgers open faced with a fork. Spread yogurt mint sauce on half of hamburger bun or piece of toasted bread. Place tomato slice and hamburger on bun. Top with onions and feta. Drizzle with a little extra balsamic vinegar. Serve with Greek Potato Salad.
