Grilled Feta Burger

Don't wait for a special occasion to add a new twist to the basic grilled burger. Here, the addition of feta cheese and oregano brings the Mediterranean to your backyard barbecue.


Makes 4 burgers


1/2 pound 95% ground beef sirloin
1/2 pound ground turkey breast
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 ounce feta cheese
Cucumber Raita
4 slices tomato
4 whole wheat hamburger buns


  1. Combine sirloin, turkey, lemon peel, oregano, oil, salt and pepper; mix well and shape into 8 patties. Make small depression in each of 4 patties and place 1/4 of the cheese in each depression. Cover each with remaining 4 patties, sealing edges to form burgers.
  2. Grill burgers over medium heat, covered, 8 to 10 minutes (or, uncovered, 13 to 15 minutes) to medium doneness (160°F), turning once. Serve with Cucumber Raita and tomato slice on whole wheat bun.
