Yesterday I wrote a destination review on Bali, Crete ending my piece with a picture of the best ‘Greek Plate,’ I’ve had thus far during my 4 months of travelling through Greece. The plate included 2 meatballs, a stuffed eggplant and tomato in addition to some lovely roasted potatoes. After hundreds of ‘Greek Plates,’ this one was the best. Read ‘Sailing around Crete – Anchoring off the town of Bali.’
During my article mentioned above, I also mentioned that it must be the American in me that loves meatballs as they’re so similar to hamburgers. I’d like to consider myself to have quite diverse tastes, but no matter where I am in the world, I can’t help but to crave a good burger.
That being said, while we were in the Ionian Sea anchored off a bay on Meganisi Island, my cousin Loryn made the most delicious Greek Burgers EVER. The recipe is super easy and the flavors are out of this world.
What makes these Greek Burgers so special?
Well…Loryn put a surprise in the middle of the burger! She makes two thin paddies, adds a slice of Feta cheese to the middle and then closes them up. In the above picture the Greek burgers, the top right hasn’t been closed up yet. You can see the pieces of Feta that are there waiting to be hidden.
Check out this video to discover the few ingredients needed to make exceptionally amazing Greek Burgers. And also note that this burger is gluten free… The video also shows my daughter displaying a case of verbal diarrhea and a panorama of the bay we stayed in. As my daughter would say, “Bye, bye sweet potato!”
