Feta-Stuffed Lamb Sliders

Feta Stuffed Lamb Burger Cut

A cooking technique everyone should master is the Greekify. Heard of it? Probably not, (likely because I made it up) but here’s how you can put it into practice:

1. Choose a favorite recipe
2. Swap out some key ingredients for traditionally Greek options i.e. lamb, olives, feta cheese etc.
3. Cook and enjoy!

I used this technique in making lamb burgers and after finding out that feta cheese doesn’t stay on a burger or melt very well, I thought. Why not bake it inside the patty?!

Result: Simply delicious.

These can serve as an appetizer or main dish, converted into traditional-sized burgers or even meatballs. Get creative and make them your own!

Wrap mixture around a small ball of feta cheese, form into a small patty and place on baking sheet. Drizzle or spray patties with olive oil and bake for 18-20 minutes.

I used an olive tapenade and tomatoes to complete my burger, but feel free to make it your own.
