Step 1

In a mixing bowl, use wet hands to mix the beef, minced onions, greek seasoning, garlic, paprika, oregano and season it as you like with salt and pepper. Don't mix the cheese into the beef.

Step 2

Divide the meat into 6 pieces and pat them out to as large and thin as you can.

Step 3

Divide the cheese and place in mounded piles in the center of three of the patties; leave an area around the edges free of cheese so the burgers don't break open and leak there.

Step 4

Top each patty with another and before you squeeze it, crimp the edges almost flat and then using your hands, shore up the sides of the patty with your thumb. Then you can flatten it without having the feta try to fall out.

Step 5

Cook the burgers in a skillet, on the grill or under the broiler until done to your liking- I like mine done to 160F on an instant read thermomenter. Keep the heat low so you don't burn them- burgers take time to cook to the center.

Step 6

Serve on kaiser rolls or sandwich buns with your choice of burger toppings- I serve mine with lettuce, tomatoes and garlic aioli. You can find a recipe for quick garlic aioli in my recipebook.

Tips & Variations


  • Lettuce, tomatoes, garlic aioli, and kaiser rolls (optional burger choices)

I doubled the recipe to make 6 large burgers then stuffed them with Feta and black olives. I topped them with thin onion slices and ketchup. Delicious burgers with Greek influence!

Very flavourful burgers, with a delightful surprize in the middle. I used ground turkey for mine and followed the recipe exactly after that. We filled them with tomato slices, butter lettuce, dejon mustard and served them with a small cucumber/feta salad. Very much enjoyed!!
