From the Test Kitchen

These juicy beef burgers get a tangy, pleasantly salty twist from crumbly feta cheese mixed right into the patties. We’re serving them on toasted buns with a swipe of cucumber yogurt and roasted red peppers for rich flavor and creamy texture in every bite. A side salad combines crunchy romaine, briny olives, and zesty marinated tomatoes for delightful contrast.

Greek-Style Burgers with Tomato, Olive  & Romaine Salad
Title
  • 1⅛ lbs Ground Beef
  • 4 Potato Buns
  • 2 Romaine Lettuce Hearts
  • 4 oz Grape Tomatoes
  • 1½ oz Feta Cheese

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the buns. Roughly chop the lettuce and olives; combine in a large bowl. Halve the tomatoes. In a bowl, whisk together the vinegar, honey (kneading the packet before opening), za’atar, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the halved tomatoes and season with salt and pepper; stir to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Meanwhile, crumble the cheese into a medium bowl. Add the beef; season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine. Form the mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties. Cook 4 to 5 minutes per side (flipping carefully, as the oil may splatter), or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate. Carefully drain off and discard any excess oil.

* An instant-read thermometer should register 160°F
