Topped with a basil, mint mayonnaise, this is flavorful recipe is a great way to change up your burger. Carry on the Mediterranean-inspired theme with a sun-dried tomato pasta salad or freshly sliced tomatoes and shredded basil with a drizzle of fruity olive oil.

Ingredients

Burger

  • 1/2 pound ground lamb
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 large russet potato, sliced into 1/4-inch thick pieces, sprinkled with oil and salt
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 2 ounces arugula
  • 4 Kaiser rolls or whole wheat burger buns

Mayonnaise

  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons fresh basil, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh mint, finely minced
  • 1 lemon, zest and juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Pinch each of salt and ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. In a small bowl, whisk all of the mayonnaise ingredients together until well blended. Refrigerate until you’re ready to serve the burgers.
  2. Preheat the grill to medium-high. Mix the ground meats, cheese, egg and spices together well and form into 4 patties. Grill the burgers and sliced potatoes about 4 minutes on each side until meat is cooked to desired doneness and potatoes are tender. Assemble each burger on a bun with grilled potato slices, tomato slices, about half an ounce of arugula and top with lemon basil mayonnaise.
