Ingredients

Scale
  • 500g beef mince
  • ½ tsp (2.5ml) salt + extra
  • ½ tsp (2.5ml) black pepper + extra
  • 2 rounds of Feta cheese
  • ¼ cup (60ml) double cream plain yoghurt
  • 3 tbsp (45ml) olive oil
  • A squeeze of lemon juice
  • Toasted sesame burger buns, to serve
  • Fresh rocket, to serve
  • Cucumber ribbons, to serve
  • Sliced red onion, to serve

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the beef mince, along with ½ tsp (2.5 ml) salt and ½ tsp (2.5 ml) black pepper. Mix well and divide the mince into 8 balls. Flatten each mince ball into thin burger patties.
  2. Heat a large, oiled griddle pan over high heat and fry the burger patties in batches, flipping after 2-3 minutes or until cooked to your liking.
  3. While the patties cook, add the feta cheese to the bowl of a food processor, followed by the yoghurt, olive oil, lemon juice and season with a small pinch of salt (not too much as the feta cheese is salty) and pepper. Mix until the sauce is smooth.
  4. Place the bottom half of a burger bun onto a plate, smooth with some whipped feta sauce, some rocket, add a burger patty, followed by a second patty, some more rocket, cucumber ribbons and red onion.
  5. Smear some more whipped feta sauce onto the top half of the bun and add to the burger.
