Greek Burgers with Feta Aioli and Hummus

Pairs well with:

Sauvignon Blanc

With hints of passion fruit, melon, and citrus, this wine beckons you to kick back and find a perfect porch swing.

Simple….I love Greek food! There are so many flavors and textures in Greek cuisine. I tried to incorporate all those flavors into one delectable burger. This burger is very moist and is bursting with flavor. So delicious!


Feta aioli:

½ cup crumbled feta cheese

2 Tablespoon mayonnaise

2 ½ Tablespoon plain greek yogurt

1 clove garlic, minced

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon pepper


1 15 oz cans chickpeas

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

2 Tablespoon chopped flat leaf parsley

2 clove garlic, minced

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon tahini

1 cup finely chopped cilantro

¼ cup finely chopped mint

8 large basil leaves, finely chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

2 Tablespoons olive oil


¼ cup + 2 Tablespoons herb mix

2 lbs. ground beef

½ teaspoon marjoram

1 teaspoon Thyme

1 teaspoon Onion powder

½ cup panko

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

6 onion buns

6 slices tomato

6 sliced red onion [presumably “sliced” is a typo and “slices” was intended / Jill]

6 romaine lettuce leaves


Feta aioli:
Mix feta cheese, mayonnaise, yogurt, garlic, salt and pepper in a shallow bowl. When mixed well, cover and chill until ready to use.

Drain and rinse chickpeas. Put chickpeas, lemon juice, parsley, garlic, salt, tahini, cumin, and black pepper in a blender or food processor and blend till smooth. Slowly add in olive oil and mix until blended. Set aside.

Herb mix:
Place cilantro, mint, basil leaves, garlic, and olive oil in a food processor. Mix well and set aside.

-Prepare medium-hot coals in a charcoal or gas grill.

Mix herb mix(already made in bowl and set aside), ground beef, marjoram, thyme, onion powder, panko, salt, and pepper. When mixed, form into 6 equal patties.
Place patties on grill and cook burgers about 5-6 minutes per side. Get buns ready. Place upper and lower buns, cut sides facing down, on the outer edges of the grill rack until lightly toasted.

To assemble burgers, put 2 Tablespoons of hummus on bottom bun. Place patty on the hummus, then 1 heaping Tb. of the feta aioli. Top with red onion slice, tomato slice and romaine lettuce. Serve and enjoy!
