Fort Smith is experiencing those gorgeous, hot, drowsy summer days.. finally! All the rain has moved on, the Arkansas River is back in its banks, and the city pools are open! Helloooo summery summertime!
I love grilling. I love eating. I love a great burger! Who doesn't?! Today I'm going to share with you my spin on a Mediterranean burger. I love all things balsamic and feta, so these are easily some of my favorite burgers around.
You can always use ground turkey or chicken, but my husband has requested more beef in our lives, so these burgers are made with 93/7 ground beef.
Measurements are kind of eyeballed, so use your taste preferences when adding ingredients.
2 pounds burger
1 egg white
1/2 cup ish crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup ish kalamata olives, minced
1/4 cup pepperoncini pepper juice
1/3 cup ish balsamic vinegar
crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
Mix everything together, patty out, grill baby grill! I served mine on a bed of spinach and arugula with tomatoes, more kalamata olives and sliced pepperonicinis. I used parmesan risotto as a side, but I think home made potato chips or fries with a greek lemon dill dip would be fabulous!
