Mediterranean Burger Recipe by Momma Cuisine

2 pounds 70/30 ground beef
8 ounces crumbled feta cheese
2 tablespoons capers, chopped
1 cup fresh parsley, chopped
¼ cup pitted Kalamata olives, chopped
1 teaspoon red chili flakes
2 tablespoons olive oil
Kaiser rolls
Your favorite burger fixings

Roasted Red Pepper Mayonnaise
¼ cup jarred roasted red peppers (look in the Italian isle at the market)
1 ½ cups real mayonnaise
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon lemon juice

In a large mixing bowl use your hands to gently mix the ground beef with feta cheese, parsley, capers, olives, chili flakes and olive oil. Be careful not to over-mix or your burgers will become tough after grilling.

Separate the seasoned ground beef into 8 patties. You can make smaller patties, if you want. Grill to your liking.

With your Kenmore food processor or blender, take all the ingredients for the roasted red pepper mayonnaise and blend until smooth. Taste for seasoning and set aside in the fridge.

Top your burgers with roasted red pepper mayonnaise, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions and whatever fixings you like and enjoy!
