STUFFED GREEK BURGER

INGREDIENTS:

    • 1 cup Greek 0% plain
    • 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
    • 3 Tbsp chopped fresh mint
    • Fresh ground pepper to taste
    • 2 lbs ground lamb, beef or turkey
    • 1 beefsteak tomato, sliced into 6
    • 6 (4-inch) pitette pockets, split (or deli flat or hamburger rolls)

DIRECTIONS:

    Prep Time: 15 minutes
    Cook/Rest Time: 20 minutes

    1. Mix together yogurt, feta cheese, mint and pepper; set aside.
    2. Divide the ground meat into 12 equal portions. Shape each portion into a thin patty, about 4” wide. Place one tablespoon of the yogurt feta mixture onto 6 of the patties, then top with the remaining meat patties, being careful to seal the mixture in.
    3. Grill or broil the stuffed burgers for about 5-8 minutes, turning once. Serve immediately on the split pitettes (or rolls) with a slice of tomato and remaining yogurt sauce.
