Greek burger

>> Thursday, October 29, 2009

Tonight an inspired burger came to life by combining my favorite ingredients into such a simple dish and born was a masterpiece for my mouth's enjoyment. I call this a Greek Burger by association of ingredients. This didn't come from any certain recipe but when I ate it, I thought... Greek. So there you have it.

Start with lean ground beef. 96% lean to be exact. Pressing into a patty, gently salt and crack a light coat of pepper. Next, sprinkle with garlic and red pepper flakes (careful here, not too much). For the next part of the recipe you will need:

Sun dried tomato and olive paste
Red onions, sliced and separated into strings
Butter, 2 tablespoons
Hamburger bun
Feta cheese

Rub a tablespoon of the tomato olive paste on the hamburger patty. Mix the meat together and reshape into a patty. In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Dip the inside of each side of your bun in the butter and set aside. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

In the same skillet, drop the patty to cook, making sure to flip often until the natural juices from the meat coat the pan. Once the patty has browned on both sides, add onion strings to the skillet to cook along side the patty.

Pop the hamburger bun into the oven, face down on the middle rack to warm. Let cook for 5 - 7 minutes and plate. Once the hamburger patty is cooked to your desired temperature, place on the bottom bun. Top with onion strings, feta cheese and a ball of avocado.

Serve with veggies, salad or corn on the cob. Enjoy!
