I followed the recipe except I finely chopped the red onion rather than grating it. I don't know why, I just hate grating red onion. In order to keep it low calorie, I ate it with 100% Whole Wheat Thin Style Buns from Sara Lee. The recipe says that it yields 5 patties, but I ended up making 6 regular sized patties and one mini patty for Zel. I only cooked two plus the mini burger and froze the other four to enjoy later. The first night I added regular burger toppings like ketchup, cheese, and baby spinach.
The second time around I got the idea to make a tzaziki sauce to go with it. I have made greek burgers before and they were a hit at my house. But these will be even better with the secret veggies.
Here is a recipe for my tzaziki sauce:
- 3/4 cucumber, chopped with seeds removed
- 1 to 1 1/2 cups non-fat greek yogurt (I prefer the Fage brand)
- lemon juice
- 2 cloves garlic, pressed
- about 1/4 cup dill
- about 1 tsp cumin
- salt to taste
Hope you enjoy this as much as I did. If you try it, let me know what you think!
