Food: Greek Burger

It's September again and apart from back to school, this time of year means only one thing to my family: The Greek Store in Kenilworth is open again! After a month long (painstakingly long for it's customers) vacation The Greek Store opens it's doors again! I thought that we would celebrate with a totally greek dinner this past weekend. I found this great recipe off Epicurious.com, my go to recipe book. It's simple, fresh and very greek. Try it out for yourself!

Here's what you need:

  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 1/3 pounds ground lamb
  • 4 hamburger buns or small ciabatta rolls
  • 1 1/2 cups baby spinach leaves
  • 1 1/3 cups crumbled feta cheese
  • 4 1/4-inch-thick red onion slices
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

  • Here's what you need to do:

    Mix first 4 ingredients and 1 1/2 tablespoons oil in medium bowl; mix in lamb. Shape into four 3/4-inch-thick patties. Cook patties in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 4 minutes per side for medium.
    Meanwhile, preheat broiler. Broil buns until golden, about 2 minutes. Top each bun bottom with burger. Toss spinach, feta, onion, vinegar, and 11/2 tablespoons oil in bowl. Place salad atop burgers. Cover with bun tops, pressing firmly to compact.
