I do love a good burger and this one is soooo yummy. Imagine if a Greek gyro and a Moroccan tagine got together and had a baby…well, that is what these burgers taste like.
Incidentally, if you don’t care for burgers or are doing that gluten-free or low carb thing you can make this recipe into meatballs. I’d then make a sauce for them by pureeing a peeled cucumber, some plain Greek yogurt, and a drizzle of honey. Oh yes, that’s exactly what I would do to those meatballs.
ANYHOW! If you have access to ground lamb that will take these burgers to a new level…but I’m too cheap for that so I use pork instead.
I wish I had a picture of the finished burger for you. I’m really bad at remembering to take photos when I cook, I’m usually so stinkin’ hungry I just dig right in.

Kofta & Feta Burgers
Makes 6 burgers
1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground pork
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp salt
2 tsp black pepper
1/2 onion, grated
3 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley
1 Tbsp coriander
1/4 Tbsp cumin
1/2 Tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp powdered ginger
4 oz crumbled feta cheese
Mix everything together really well and form into burgers. For best taste refrigerate the burgers for 1-24 hours to let the spices really do their thing.
Grill or fry for 8 minutes on one side, flip, then cook 4-6 minutes on the other side.
Serve on a bun with a topping of plain yogurt, sliced tomato, and a super-thin onion slice.
