Update your regular hamburger with this fresh Greek twist. These burgers are deliciously seasoned with oregano, onion, and garlic. They're topped with crumbled feta cheese and fresh baby spinach for even more flavor. Top with tomato slices, ketchup, or tzatziki. Swap lean ground chicken, turkey, or lamb for the beef. Serve these flavourful burgers with roasted potatoes or sweet potatoes.
