Greek Bison Burgers

Feta and spinach not only add great flavor to these Greek-inspired burgers, but also provide moisture and texture to lean ground bison. The yogurt sauce is a perfect condiment, with much less fat than regular mayonnaise.

Serves 4

Prep Time 35 min

Total Time 35 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground bison
  • 1/2 cup cooked spinach, squeezed dry
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese, preferably sheep’s-milk
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 3/4 cup nonfat or low-fat Greek-style plain yogurt, (see Note)
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh mint
  • 4 French rolls, or 4-inch pieces of baguette, preferably whole-wheat, split and toasted
  • 16 thin slice English cucumber
  • 8 slices vine-ripened tomato
  • 4 thin round red onion

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat grill to medium-high.

Step 2

Place bison, spinach, feta, 2 teaspoons dill, oregano, cumin, garlic, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a large mixing bowl. Gently combine without overmixing. Form into 4 oval-shaped patties roughly the size of the rolls.

Step 3

Oil the grill rack (see Tip, below). Grill the burgers until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 155°F, 5 to 6 minutes per side.

Step 4

To prepare yogurt sauce: Combine yogurt, lemon zest and juice, 1 teaspoon dill and mint in a small bowl. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Step 5

Assemble the burgers on rolls with the yogurt sauce, cucumber, tomato and onion.
