About this Recipe

Greek-style hamburger with tzatziki.


1 English cucumber
1 cup (250 mL) Greek yogurt
1 cup (250 mL) Sour cream
3 Cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp (15 mL) Chopped fresh dill
1 tbsp (15 mL) Lemon juice
Freshly ground black pepper
1 lb (454 g) Ground beef or lamb
1 Egg, beaten
1 tsp (5 mL) Worcestershire sauce
2 Cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp (15 mL) Chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup (125 ml) Crumbled Feta cheese
Freshly ground pepper
1 cup (250 mL) Shredded cabbage or ready prepared coleslaw mix
1 Green onion, thinly sliced
4 Dempster’s® Deluxe Hamburger Buns


GRATE ¾ of the cucumber using a cheese grater. Place in a strainer, sprinkle with salt and let stand for 15 minutes. Squeeze out any excess liquid. Drain on paper towels. Dice remaining cucumber, place in a small bowl and set aside.

MIX together yogurt, sour cream, garlic, dill, lemon juice, grated cucumber and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use.

PREHEAT BBQ to medium-high. Lightly coat grill with non-stick cooking spray.

GENTLY combine beef or lamb, egg, Worcestershire, garlic, parsley, Feta and pepper using your hands. Form mixture into 4 equal size burger patties.

GRILL burgers for 4-5 minutes per side or until evenly char grilled and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).

ASSEMBLE burgers by spreading a generous spoonful of tzatziki on both the bottom and the top of each bun. Divide cabbage between the bottom buns. Top with a burger patty followed by reserved diced cucumbers and the remaining tops of the buns. Serve immediately.
