Greek Island Burgers

My husband and I loved the fresh ingredients we experienced on our recent honeymoon in Greece. Inspired by the food we experienced in Athens and on the Island of Santorini, I wanted a fun way to bring these ingredients into an American dish, so, I created these burgers.


1.5 pounds of ground beef
1 tbs. dried minced garlic
1 tsp. herbed salt*, or salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tbs. oregano, dried
2 tbs. Dijon mustard
2 tbs. Worstcheshire
1 tsp dried sage
½ cup of feta, crumbled
Oil for grill
4 ciabatta rolls, cut in half
4 roasted red pepper halves** (canned or jar, packed in water)


Mix first 9 ingredients, up to the feta, together until well blended into meat. Divide meat mixture into four portions and form into thick patties. Prepare grill with oil. Grill on a medium high 5 minutes per side, or until no longer pink in the center (cut to test). Toast the ciabatta rolls. Layer the meat patty on the bottom of the roll, and top with one roasted red bell pepper. Top with top half of ciabatta roll.


This recipe serves four, but makes a hefty burger. It can be portioned into 6 if you choose. * I make my own herbed salt, which is a blend of 7 herbs with kosher salt. Plain kosher salt works fine in this recipe too. ** I roast my own red bell peppers, but the jar variety packed in water work great here.
