Greek Burger

July 30, 2009

~ Mary ~


Burgers, Burgers, Burgers!  Blame it on the weather and the fact that I have a bunch of ground pork – which, by the way,  grills up to a very moist and delicious burger.  We’ve been getting our beef burgers from Kuma’s and I don’t dare try to emulate perfection!


These burgers have been around for about our last five summers and started out using ground turkey.  But like I said – I’ve got a lot of ground pork and I’m glad because it’s really better suited for grilling.  I’m not sure where the recipe came from – I think maybe RecipeZaar, but I can’t be sure.  All I know is that they’re DAMN FINE!

    OMG I cannot wait to try this. I always have ground pork in the freezer and yet I’ve never thought of make burgers out of it.

    These look fantastic. I don’t often get ground pork, but I bet they’d be phenomenal with ground lamb.

    Agreed — bet these would be absolutely killer made with ground lamb! I love a good Greek burger. Pass lots of tzatziki, please!

    These would be fun made into little meatballs and served as “sliders” at a party….will have to give them a try.

    I was just about to say the same thing as Debi, this burger would make fantastic sliders at a party.
