How do you take your burger? I like mine Greek!

Greek Burger with Sundried Tomatoes, Feta, and Tzatziki

I am re-posting this entry because I made them last night and Ryan was there, armed with his Nikon (this food blogging business has been good for him - I cook yummy food to blog about and all he has to do is take pictures!)

A while back, my dear friend Kristin and I visited a spot in Media, PA that is one of those places where you can go and prepare meals that can be taken home and frozen for later consumption (which I am sorry to say just closed its doors). Among 5 or 6 other entrees, one of the things that I prepared was something called a Greek Burger.

For a fun take on grilling, try this little twist on the hamburger (I have adapted the recipe to fit my preferences, but I think you'll enjoy it):

That's me!

Greek Burgers (makes 4)

  • 1 lb. lean ground round
  • 1T steak sauce
  • 1T Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 4 pitas (opt for smaller ones if you have the choice)


  • Sun-dried tomatoes
  • Feta cheese
  • Tzatziki (a Greek cucumber yogurt dip - optional)

Heat grill to 350 degrees.

Mix all ingredients except pitas (don't be afraid to get your hands in there and get dirty!).

Form 4 flat football-shaped patties (so that it will fit in a pita when folded in half).

If you are freezing, prepare up to this point and put in plastic freezer bags. When you are ready to use, defrost overnight the night before making.

Grill to your desired doneness (about 5 1/2 minutes for medium-rare) then place in a folded pita.

Top with feta, sun-dried tomatoes, and perhaps a little tzatziki if you're feeling authentic!

I am so glad you posted this recipe!! I was so disappointed that I didn't pick this one when we went, and I have been meaning to try it on my own.

What a terrific change from the usual grilled burger on a bun. Lots of flavor!
