Here is another stuffed burger recipe for Burger Fridays!  It was inspired from my love of Greek salad and feta cheese. Oh, I love good feta cheese, especially a sheep/goat soft feta that I get at Kalamata Grocery store here in Calgary. The feta is in large barrels and the clerk will cut out a chunk depending on how much you want. It melts in your mouth.
This burger is full of mediterranean herbs and spices, then filled with a cube of feta. Doesn’t that sound good? The burger also has roasted garlic in it. Roasted garlic changes the sharpness of raw garlic to a sort of sweet quality. Normally I would roast bulbs of garlic in my oven, but as you all know, I am without one for the summer.  So, what to do?
I wrapped the bulbs in aluminum foil and tossed it on the BBQ on the lowest heat for an hour. The BBQ really added a smokiness to the garlic.

 
We’ve had great weather so far this summer, and I have been enjoying the beautiful sunsets I can capture on our balcony.

And our ravine behind our house is blooming with prairie flowers.

  • Mix well.
  • Divide mixture into 2 portions(these make large patties).

  • Place a cube of feta in the middle of the chicken and wrap meat around cheese, forming a patty.
  • Pour the olive oil onto a plate and place chicken patties on the plate, flipping over to coat the burgers with the oil. (Oiling your patty prevents the chicken burger from sticking to BBQ grill).
