Directions

1. Preheat The Grill To Medium-High Heat.

1. Preheat the Grill to Medium-High Heat: Before you begin preparing your Loaded Greek Burgers, you must preheat the grill to medium-high heat. This will ensure that your burgers cook evenly and quickly. 

To preheat the grill, start by turning all of the burners to high heat and closing the lid. 

Allow the grill to preheat for 10-15 minutes. Once the grill is hot, turn the burners down to medium-high heat and you are ready to start cooking.

2. In A Medium Bowl, Combine 1 Pound Of Ground Beef 

  • 1/4 cup of crumbled feta cheese, 
  • 1/4 cup of diced red onion, 
  • 1/4 cup of diced cucumber, 
  • 1/4 cup of diced tomato, 
  • 1/4 cup of chopped fresh parsley, 
  • 1 tablespoon of minced garlic, 
  • 1 teaspoon of dried oregano, 
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 
  • And 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper.

Making loaded Greek burgers is a simple and delicious way to enjoy a classic burger with a Mediterranean twist. 

To begin, in a medium bowl, combine 1 pound of ground beef, 1/4 cup of crumbled feta cheese, 1/4 cup of diced red onion, 1/4 cup of diced cucumber, 1/4 cup of diced tomato, 1/4 cup of chopped fresh parsley, 1 tablespoon of minced garlic, 1 teaspoon of dried oregano, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper. Mix the ingredients together until well combined. 

Then, form the mixture into four equal-sized patties. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add a tablespoon of olive oil. 

Once the oil is hot, add the patties to the skillet and cook for 4-5 minutes per side or until the burgers are cooked through. 

Serve the burgers on toasted buns with a dollop of tzatziki sauce and your favorite toppings. Enjoy your loaded Greek burgers!

3. Form The Mixture Into Four Equal-Sized Patties.

To form the mixture into four equal-sized patties, first, divide the mixture into four equal parts. 

Then, take one part of the mixture and form it into a patty shape with your hands. Make sure to press the mixture firmly together to ensure that the patty holds its shape. 

Repeat this process with the remaining three parts of the mixture. Once all four patties have been formed, use a spatula to flatten each patty until it is about one-half inch thick. 

Finally, use a fork to poke a few holes in each patty to help it cook evenly. Your Loaded Greek Burgers are now ready to be cooked.

4. Place The Patties On The Preheated Grill And Cook For 4-5 Minutes Per Side, Or Until The Burgers Are Cooked Through.

To make Loaded Greek Burgers, begin by preheating a grill to medium-high heat. 

While the grill is preheating, prepare the patties by combining ground beef, feta cheese, oregano, garlic, and onion in a large bowl. Form the mixture into four equal-sized patties. 

Once the grill is preheated, place the patties on the grill and cook for 4-5 minutes per side, or until the burgers are cooked through. 

Once the burgers are cooked, remove them from the grill and place them on a plate. 

To assemble the burgers, place the patties on a bun and top them with lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, and tzatziki sauce.

5. Toast Four Hamburger Buns On The Grill For 1-2 Minutes.

To make delicious Loaded Greek Burgers, begin by toasting four hamburger buns on the grill for 1-2 minutes. This will give the buns a nice crunchy texture and a delicious smoky flavor. 

Next, season the ground beef with Greek seasoning, garlic powder, and onion powder. 

Form the beef into four patties and cook them on the grill for about 5 minutes per side. While the patties are cooking, prepare the toppings. 

Slice tomatoes, cucumbers, and red onions and set aside. In a small bowl, mix together Greek yogurt, feta cheese, and dill. 

Once the patties are cooked, assemble the burgers by layering the patty, tomato, cucumber, red onion, and feta yogurt sauce. Serve the burgers on the toasted buns and enjoy!

6. Assemble The Burgers By Topping Each Patty With 1 Tablespoon Of Tzatziki Sauce

  • 1/4 cup of diced cucumber, 
  • 1/4 cup of diced tomato, 
  • and 1/4 cup of crumbled feta cheese.

To assemble the delicious Loaded Greek Burgers, begin by topping each patty with 1 tablespoon of tzatziki sauce. 

This creamy sauce is made from Greek yogurt, cucumber, garlic, and dill, and adds a delicious flavor to the burgers. 

Next, top the patties with 1/4 cup of diced cucumber, 1/4 cup of diced tomato, and 1/4 cup of crumbled feta cheese. 

The cucumber and tomato provide a fresh and crunchy texture, while the feta cheese adds a salty and tangy flavor. Finally, place the top bun on each burger and serve. 

Enjoy these Loaded Greek Burgers with a side of fries or a Greek salad for a complete meal.

7. Serve The Burgers On Toasted Buns. Enjoy!

Once you have all the ingredients ready, it’s time to start assembling the burgers. 

Start by preheating the oven to 375°F. Place the beef patties on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the patties are cooked through. 

While the patties are baking, heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. 

Add the garlic and cook for another minute. Add the spinach and cook until wilted. Remove from heat and set aside. 

Toast the buns in the oven for a few minutes until lightly golden. Once the patties are done, assemble the burgers by placing the patty on the bottom bun, followed by the spinach mixture, feta cheese, and top bun. Serve the burgers on toasted buns. Enjoy!
