These juicy beef burgers get a tangy, pleasantly salty twist from crumbly feta cheese mixed right into the patties—all served on toasted buns alongside a swipe of cucumber yogurt, for rich flavor and creamy texture in every bite. Crispy, oregano-roasted potatoes give this dish a final Mediterranean-style touch.

Prepare & roast the potatoes:
1 Prepare & roast the potatoes:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the potatoes lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/4-inch pieces. Transfer to a sheet pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and the oregano. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer. Roast 20 to 22 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Form & cook the patties:
2 Form & cook the patties:

While the potatoes roast, crumble the cheese into a medium bowl. Add the beef; season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine. Form the mixture into two 1/2-inch-thick patties. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties and 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.

Prepare the remaining ingredients:
3 Prepare the remaining ingredients:

While the patties cook, halve the buns. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester, finely grate into a paste (or use the small side of a box grater).

Toast the buns:
4 Toast the buns:

Add the buns, cut side down, to the pan of reserved fond. Toast on medium-high 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a work surface.
