Feta Stuffed Greek Burgers On The Grill With Tzatziki Sauce Recipe!
I love a hamburger cooked on the grill, who doesn’t?! I also love Feta and Greek food, so when Hubby decide to make Feta Stuffed Greek Burgers On The Grill, I was excited.
It was really delicious, too! He added a Tzatziki Sauce that I have never had before, but, it was delicious!
Hubby does most of the cooking now that we have switched our diet to a no sugar added diet. He has become quite the chef, too! We love to cook out on the grill, we use our grill pretty much year round.
I love that it makes less mess for me to clean in the kitchen :). In the summer it helps with our electric bill by not heating up the kitchen and by not using as many appliances!

How To Make The Best Burgers
Hamburgers are really easy to make. You can make them on a stove or a grill in just a few minutes. They make a really good and filling snack or meal. In order to make a really good burger, here are some tips to help you out:
- Add cheese to the patty to add extra moisture, especially if you’re using lean meat
- Mix seasonings into the meat instead of just sprinkling over the patty
- Avoid squishing the patty with your spatula. It will draw out the juices
- Especially when you’re using ground turkey or chicken, make sure to use a meat thermometer to determine safe cooking temperatures
You can serve this on a non-traditional bun, like a homemade pita bread or a tortilla if you crumble the meat. Or you can serve as is and with a side of fries or salad. If you want to cut carbs, you can skip using a bun and wrap the burger in lettuce.
