“I always eat healthy meals and am not afraid to experiment with food. I put together some common Greek ingredients and really liked this combination. Hope you do, too. These burgers are delicious with roasted-garlic ciabatta rolls!” Lori Ann Panchisin - Ormond Beach, FL

    These burgers are very tasty. I made them with ground chicken and they were delicious. The sauce is great and some of my quests used it as a dip.

    Delicious! We subbed ground turkey and added lettuce & tomato on top. The flavors are fantastic - especially the sauce.
