Greek Meatball Burgers

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Place a pan over high heat and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
  • Add the chopped onions and sauté until nicely caramelized.
  • Add the sliced garlic, thyme and sauté.
  • When ready, transfer to a food processor.
  • Add the 3-4 tablespoons of olive oil, sliced bread and beat until the bread breaks down.
  • Add the oregano, paprika and milk.
  • Beat until the mixture is completely combined.
  • Transfer to a large bowl.
  • Add the ground beef and ground pork, lemon zest, egg, finely chopped parsley and the mint and a generous amount of salt and pepper.
  • Mix by sort of mashing the mixture between your fingers, until all of the ingredients are completely combined. You will see the mixture coming together nicely.
  • Pick up some of the meatball mixture and shape it in to 6-8 large patties. They should be between 220 g and 250 g each.
  • You can make them any size you like, but if you make them smaller, cook them less so they don’t dry out.
  • Place them on a rimmed baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper.
  • Drizzle them with some Greek extra virgin olive oil.
  • Roast for 30-40 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven and serve with mashed potatoes.
  • Drizzle with some extra virgin olive oil, a bit of fresh oregano and some paprika.
  • Serve and enjoy this amazing dish!
