The weather is warming up and the days are getting longer. It’s that time of year when grilling and lighter flavors are what I crave. I had this idea for these Greek burgers and they were so dang good, I had to share the recipe!
These burgers were really flavorful and with all of the veggies, feta, and tahini drizzled on top, they weren’t super heavy and just tasted really fresh – perfect for spring and summer weather!
Instead of serving them on a bun, I stuffed these into some pita bread. It gives them more of that gyro feel. I made the burgers with beef instead of lamb, but you could also make these as lamb burgers or a mixture of meat. I used this Greek seasoning (affiliate link) in the burgers. I can usually find this seasoning at my regular grocery store and it has a lot of great flavor that works great on all meats.
Tips and Substitutions:
- If desired, you can use ground lamb for a more authentic Greek burger. You can also swap out the ground beef for ground chicken or turkey!
- I like to serve these with pita bread, but you can also use regular hamburger buns if your prefer it.
- I drizzled tahini dressing on top of these burgers, but you could also spread a layer of hummus onto the pita bread before stuffing it.
- If you want to use pita bread, you may want to shape the burgers so they are more oval-like than perfectly round so they cover the shape of the pita bread a little better.
- For the tahini dressing, I used a tahini dressing from my grocery store in the salad dressing section. I saw multiple types so any kind will do. If you cannot find it, you can spread hummus or drizzle fresh lemon juice or a vinaigrette dressing on top.
