There’s nothing quite like a juicy burger….especially if you use fresh, pasture-raised beef. Homemade burgers are one of my summertime go-to meals because they are really simple to make. I like that I can make them on the stovetop or grill them. And I have this great countertop grill that I love to use! I’ve been wanting to experiment with some different flavors in my burgers. I wanted to try some feta cheese in a burger because it’s a favorite of mine and decided to create this Greek burger.

It really had an amazing flavor! I didn’t have to use any salt at all because the feta and the olives add plenty of saltiness. But it’s not too overwhelming. If you opt to not use the chopped olives, then you may want to add just a bit of salt.

For the top of the burger, I allow the tomato and onion to soak for a while in a little bit of Greek salad dressing. It adds such amazing flavor and really enhances the burger.

I always eat bunless burgers these days. It actually allows me to put even more tomatoes and onion on top of the burger. Yum!

Without the bun, this burger is both gluten and grain-free.

Notes

If you have ground beef that doesn’t want to bind well, you can add an egg yolk to help it bind better. These burgers tend to be a little crumbly and may not work well on the grill.
