Greek Buffalo Burgers

If you are like me, making burgers can get a little boring. After all, there really isn’t much to get excited about when you simply throw a well-formed chunk of meat in a pan or on a grill. I needed some inspiration so I turned to the one culture that has no shortage of enthusiasm – the Greeks! This Greek Buffalo Burger is fit for the gods. Serve with a little Tzatziki sauce, red onion and tomato and I swear you will be dancing with bells on in no time at all.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground buffalo
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup almond flour/meal or bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried tarragon
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 4 whole wheat pita pockets

Method

  1. Combine egg, flour, oregano, tarragon, feta, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Work the ground buffalo into the mixture, taking care not to overwork the meat. Form into 4 equal-sized patties. 
  2. Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium heat. Cook the burgers for approximately 4-5 minutes each side, or until the meat is no longer red in the middle. While the burgers finish cooking, toast pita pockets in a toaster or on the grill until warmed through. 
  3. Divide the burgers among the pita pockets, top with Tzatziki, onion and tomato.
