From the Test Kitchen

WHY WE LOVE THIS DISH
These burgers get exciting Mediterranean flavor from a smoky harissa mayo and a topper of feta cheese marinated with vibrant pickled peppers and verdant parsley. We’re pairing the burgers with corn on the cob—smothered in creamy tzatziki sauce then dusted with herby za’atar to finish.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Fill a large pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Remove any husks and silks from the corn. Halve the buns. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. In a bowl, combine the sliced shallot, vinegar, and sugar. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Roughly chop the peppers. Roughly chop the parsley leaves and stems. Combine the chopped peppers and chopped parsley in a separate bowl. Add the feta (crumbling before adding) and a drizzle of olive oil. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. In a bowl, combine the harissa paste and mayonnaise; stir to combine.

Form & cook the patties
2 Form & cook the patties

In a medium bowl, combine the lamb and oregano; season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine. Using your hands, form the mixture into four 1/2-inch- thick patties. In a large pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties. Cook 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Transfer to a work surface. Wipe out the pan.

*The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 160°F for lamb.

Cook the corn

Meanwhile, add the corn cobs to the pot of boiling water. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until bright yellow and slightly tender. Drain thoroughly and pat dry with paper towels. Transfer to a serving dish.

Toast the buns & serve your dish
4 Toast the buns & serve your dish

Working in batches, add the halved buns, cut side down, to the same pan. Toast on medium-high 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a work surface. Assemble the burgers using the toasted buns, harissa mayo, cooked patties, marinated shallot (discarding any liquid), and marinated feta. Evenly top the corn with the tzatziki and as much of the za'atar as you'd like. Serve the burgers with the dressed corn on the side. Enjoy!
