Mediterranean Burgers with Creamy Garlic Sauce

Mediterranean Burgers with Creamy Garlic Sauce

by Blair Roberts October 09, 2019

It’s always burger season in the South. Whether it’s cold outside or a 100°F …it’s time to enjoy some good company and eat outdoors. In Mississippi, the summers tend to finally die out around the end of October. You won’t see us complain, though. The sunny days give us the perfect excuse to get outside and do the things we love: entertaining, yard work, sports, and, of course, grilling.

If you love garlic, you’ll love these Mediterranean Burgers with Creamy Garlic Sauce. The light, simple sauce complements the flavorful burger patty in just the right way. You and your guests are sure to fall in love with this recipe.

So, let me tell y’all about makin’ this burger. It is incredible!

Garlic Yogurt Sauce
3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 T lemon juice
4-5 (or more) roasted garlic cloves
Combine in a food processor and pulse until garlic is well blended. Cover and chill while preparing meat to allow flavors to marry.

Mediterranean Burger Patty
2 lbs Ground Chuck
1 sweet onion chopped
1 1/2 t cumin
1 1/2 t garlic powder
1 t sweet paprika
1 t fine ground morning roast
1/2 t allspice
1/2 t cinnamon
2 t salt
Combine and form into burgers. Grilling is best, but stovetop work just fine too. Cook to preferred temp. Build burger with yogurt sauce and choice toppings and enjoy!

Topping Suggestions:
Spinach
Feta
Olive bruschetta
Sun dried or fresh tomatoes
Grilled red pepper

Banana bread is unbeatable, especially when it comes to breakfast. With some clever naming, we've somehow tricked ourselves into making it acceptable to eat what's essentially a piece of cake before 10 a.m. You don’t see me complaining, though.

This Southern Beef Brisket is about as close as you can come to classic mouthwatering Texas brisket without actually going to Texas. For this brisket (and many other types of meat), I like to use my favorite coffee spice rub recipe.
