Greek Salad Burger
This dish is super for a speedy dinner night , especially if you have become bored with just plain old burgers and fries. You may easily substitute another protein like lamb, turkey, chicken or pork, depending on your preference. The ready to cook beef patties, however, lend to the time saving aspect and represent the dish very well. Good ole American Sharp Cheddar seals the proverbial deal for a delicious, nutritious and kinda messy meal, bring plenty of napkins!
4 1/4 lb. good quality beef patties
green leaf lettuce
thinly sliced red onion
store bought Tzatziki sauce
4 slices Sharp Cheddar
4 Potato buns
fresh oregano leaves
olive oil for drizzling
Cook beef patties sprinkled with a scant amount of seasoned salt and cumin to 160*F or desired doneness. Add 1 slice of cheese to each.
Meanwhile, drizzle the separated buns with olive oil and toast under the broiler.
Smear buns with a small amount of Tzatziki to act as a glue.

Place a large dollop of Tzatziki sauce on top of burger.

SPST and drizzle with olive oil.
