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:
Olive bruschetta
Sun dried or fresh tomatoes
Grilled red pepper

Everyone loves cheesecake, but this Irish coffee cheesecake is quite possibly better than all the good luck on St Patricks Day. Buttery cookie crust, rich Irish cream and whiskey infused filling, and a decadent whiskey coffee ganache make this the perfect addition to any party.

Carnival, or Mardi Gras, in the south, is a serious and delightful season.  Parties, and beads, and parades, and music can’t really equate to anything but a good ole time, right? Some people plan their whole year around it, and understandably so.  The best part, of course, is the food…most importantly, King Cake!
