Greek Stuffed Burgers on Garlic Flatbread

A different twist on your basic hamburger. Super Yummy!! Also great with ground turkey or ground chicken breast! You could even slice and stuff a full chicken breast with this filling....Oh the possibilities!

10 slices Flatbread or homemade Garlic Flatbread HERE


1.5 lbs lean ground beef
1/2 small onion, grated or chopped very fine
2 tsp olive oil
2 tsp dried oregano(or 2 TB fresh)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
1 tsp paprika
1 egg
1/4 cup bread crumbs

1/2 cup feta cheese
1 TB fresh  parsley, minced
2 stalks green onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes, drained and chopped(reserve a little of the oil)
1/2 cup baby spinach, chopped

Mix burger ingredients in a bowl until well combined.
Divide into 10 sections and form thin patties.

In another bowl combine stuffing ingredients, adding in a bit of oil until it is just moist enough to stick together.

Divide the stuffing between 5 patties,

place the remaining 5 patties on top and pinch the edges to seal.

Broil or grill the burgers 5-6 minutes on each side to desired doneness.

Greek Yogurt Sauce:
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
1 TB fresh parsley, minced
Mix well and refrigerate for 30 minutes

Take 1 piece of flat bread and top it with a generous dab of Yogurt Sauce. Place burger on top and top as you please, I suggest, spinach, tomato and red onion. Finish  with another flat bread, slice and enjoy!
