Greek Sausage Burgers Makes 4
Featured in our April 2014 Hot Line Feta, tzatziki, veggies… all stuffed into a soft pita (and then stuffed into your mouth).
2 mild Italian pork sausages, removed from casings ¾ pound extra lean ground beef 1 large egg 1 small red onion, diced 1 clove garlic, smashed and minced 1/3-cup feta cheese, crumbled 1 teaspoon dried oregano Handful of fresh parsley, chopped ¼ teaspoon black pepper 2 pita pockets, halved Tzatziki, to serve Sliced cucumbers, tomatoes, and lettuce, to serve
Step 1: Assemble your ingredients. Preheat grill to medium heat and clean the grates.
Make a slit along the sausages length and then squish all of the meat out of the casings. Squish it gooood.
Step 3: Chop the feta. Or crumble it. Do whatever it is that you need to do to make it all crumbly.
Step 4: Place the sausage meat, beef, egg, onion, garlic, that professionally crumbled feta cheese, oregano, parsley, and black pepper in a large bowl.
Step 5: Mix it up. Mix it real good. Use your hands – this is no place for a spoon! If you’re squeamish, use gloves – we won’t judge (maybe just a little bit… but not that much).
…until things are seriously mixed up.
Step 6: Next, divide the mixture into four oblong patties. Grill them until cooked through (sorry, crappy weather + dark evenings = no grilling pictures. Use your imagination.)
Step 7: Serve burgers in pita halves with tzatziki, cucumbers, tomatoes, and lettuce.
