Greek Burger


Greek Burger – By Kiran S.

Tzatziki and cucumber slices line the bottom of the toasted brioche bun for moisture and crunch. The bison burger is made with fresh onion, garlic, rosemary, thyme, and oregano, lemon zest and juice, and salt and pepper. It is stuffed with grilled, squeaky halloumi cheese and crispy buffalo bacon for a smoky, salty, melty and crunchy moment in the bite. Another dab of tzatziki goes on top of the burger to anchor down some sprouts for another earthy textural element. Then, a rustic, chunky hummus/tabouli combination with smashed and whole chickpeas mixed with cherry tomatoes, garlic, scallions, lemon, and parsley tops it off for a creamy, yet toothsome addition. Flavor and texture overload! Yummmyyyyyy!
