Mediterranean-Style Burgers

Be sure to check the Mediterranean thread of the Internation Recipe Forum for some great recipes.


1 pound lean ground beef
1 large egg, beaten (omit if serving rare or medium rare)
2 ounces jarred roasted pimentos, diced
1/4 cup diced Kalamata olives
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt
pepper to taste
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon fresh minced garlic
1 fresh baguette
romaine lettuce leaves
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled

In large bowl combine beef, egg if using, pimento, olives, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, salt and pepper. Mix well and form into 4 rectangular patties the width of the baguette. Grill the patties until done to your liking.

While the burgers are cooking, combine the mayonnaise and garlic. Slice the baguette from one end to the other lengthwise through the center. Cut the split baguette into 4 pieces. Spread the garlic mayonnaise on the bottom of each piece; top with a burger and a leaf of romaine. Top with feta cheese. Finish with roll top and more of the mayonnaise. Serve immediately.
