Mediterranean Veal Burger

Mediterranean Veal Burger

Who does not love a good burger, especially a Mediterranean Veal Burger? This burger is a delicious twist on a typical classic burger. This recipe is simple to make and the burger itself is tender and juicy. The toppings are fresh, vibrant, and all together this meal is full of flavor and textures. It is like a party in your mouth!
Burgers can be made with a variety of proteins and flavor. Challenge yourself, open your mind, and excite your palate by experimenting with a variety of flavor profiles, like in this Mediterranean twist.
This is perfect enjoyed on a ciabatta roll or potato bun with just a small dollop of mayonnaise. Or skip the bun all together, and by default this recipe ends up being a Keto Burger (without a roll)! This delicious veal burger pairs wonderfully with an ice-cold beer or glass of white wine.

Burger:

  • 1 lb. of ground veal
  • 2 Tbsp. garlic paste (or 1 Tbsp. minced garlic)
  • Salt & black pepper
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped red onion
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped parsley
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Feta cheese
  • Squeeze of fresh lemon juice (about 1 tsp.)

Topping

  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup sliced scallions or chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped Kalamata olives
  • 1/4 cup chopped green olives
  • 2 Tbsp. capers
  • 1/4 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup crumbled Feta
  • Squeeze of fresh lemon juice (about 1 tsp.)
  • Salt & black pepper

Burger Assembly Options:

  • Bun of your choice or enjoy bunless
  • Greens
  • Mayo

Instructions

  1. Combine the veal, garlic, salt, pepper, egg yolk, red onion, parsley, feta and lemon juice in a mixing bowl. Form into four (4) quarter pound patties.
  2. For the Mediterranean Salsa Topping, combine all ingredients in a small bowl, season with salt and pepper and toss. Set aside.
  3. Cook patties in a lightly oiled grill pan or on your outdoor grill for approximately 5-6 minutes per side or until internal temperature is 160 degrees.
  4. Top burgers with your Mediterranean Salsa. If using a bun, place greens, then burger then salsa onto bun. If using mayonnaise or other condiment, place that below the greens. Enjoy!

Notes: Always brush and oil your grill before using for best success. If you enjoy cheese on your burger, feel free to add your favorite cheese to the burger just before its done cooking. The feta in and on the burger does give some great flavor, so additional cheese is not necessary.


Note: Nutritional Information is without the bun (since buns vary and many may choose no bun)
