Opa! Lol…this isn’t really a greek recipe, but it does incorporate feta, oregano, and some paprika. The seasoning flavor combinations were used in both the burger and the oven fries.
I wasn’t even planning on cooking that night, but since I’ve grown tired of eating a bunch of crap from a drive-thru or take-out place (been busy lately, don’t judge, lol), I figured I’d try to make something quick.
I was already in the store anyways buying bread to make sausage-rye stuffing for Thanksgiving.
Here’s the ingredient list
– 1 lb ground chicken
– Garlic Powder
– Onion Powder
– Dried thyme
– Dried oregano
– Smoked Paprika
– Feta Cheese
– 1 Tbsp Olive Oil (I use extra virgin)
– Garlic Aioli (Mayonnaise) – See recipe below
– 3/4 cup mayonnaise (homemade, or jarred for convenience)
– juice of 1 lemon
– 1 clove garlic, finely minced, or mashed into a paste
– pinch of salt/pepper
– Worcestershire sauce (a few drops)
– 3 to 4 medium sized red potatoes
– Garlic powder
– Onion powder
– Dried Oregano
– Dried thyme
– Smoked paprika
– Olive oil
1: Place ground chicken in a bowl
2: Add all the spices (I did not add measurements on spices because you can do whatever you like)
3: Mix to combine (do not overmix, or burgers will be tough)
4: Divide mixture into 3 or 4 sections
5: Split each section into two (for top and bottom halves)
6: Put feta one one half, then cover with the other and press edges to seal
7: Cook in pan until cooked through (180 degrees F), turning once – Carryover cooking will cook the burger another few degrees, so be careful it does not overcook.
1: Place mayonnaise in a bowl and add garlic and worcestershire sauce. Mix, then add lemon juice, salt and pepper and mix again until smooth
1: Rinse potatoes and then either peel (or not, depending on your preference)
2: Slice potatoes into 1/2 inch sticks
3: Place potatoes in a bowl, and toss with olive oil and all dry ingredients, coating evenly
4: Place seasoned potatoes on a baking sheet (with parchment paper or Silpat if you like) and bake in a 375 oven, turning potatoes halfway through. Cook until golden brown and cooked through.
It didn’t take much longer than 30-35 minutes to assemble all the food and get it cooking. Also, on the burger, you can add caramelized onions as I did, but it’s not necessary.
