Warm weather calls for summer-time meals. So for today's Saturday Stirrings over at It Coulda' Been Worse, I offer Chicken Feta Burgers for the grill. These are a tasty alternative to regular burgers and make a nice change of pace. Don't get me wrong. I love beef! But it's nice to have some other options. And don't forget to stop by Dee's and check out all the other recipes!
CHICKEN FETA BURGERS
1 slice bread
1/4 cup milk
2 Tablespoons finely chopped onion
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1 lb. ground chicken
salt and pepper to taste
Tear bread into pieces and soak in milk for 5 minutes. Add egg, onion, feta and ground chicken. Mix well and form into patties. Salt and pepper to taste and grill for 5 minutes or so on each side until done but not dry. Serve how your family likes them (on buns, alone, in pita shells...) with lettuce, tomato, and so on.
NOTE: If you serve in pita shells, a little yogurt/cucumber sauce is a great alternative to mayo. So here's the recipe for that, too:
YOGURT CUCUMBER SAUCE
1 to 1-1/2 cups plain yogurt (less for thicker sauce)
1 cucumber, peeled and seeded
2 cloves garlic, crushed
juice of 1/2 lemon, about 1 to 1-1/2 tablespoons
salt and white pepper, to taste
Grate cucumber and squeeze out excess liquid (I use a fine mesh strainer for this). Mix all ingredients and refridgerate until ready to use.
