I’ve got a terrific burger recipe that has a very unique flavor. How can I describe these burgers? The flavor is bold, rich and tangy, and my best comparison is lasagna!

What to Serve With Burgers

Choose from any of my favorite summer side dish recipes. Here are a few to get started.

I’m a big fan of sun dried tomatoes and I think the technique really brings out the sweetness in the tomato. The intensity of that flavor combined with the ground beef, and topped with the sun-dried tomato mayonnaise tastes great!

  • Ground beef. Use somewhat lean meat so they don’t shrink too much while cooking. Remember, a little fat content adds flavor and moisture.
  • Red onion. Use a medium to large size onion. You’ll chop half to mix into the ground beef and slice the other half into rings for topping your burger.
  • Feta cheese. Use a container of crumbled feta to make it quick and easy to work with.
  • Sun dried tomatoes. Grab a large jar of oil-packed sun dried tomatoes. You’ll use half for the burgers and half for the mayonnaise spread.
  • Ciabatta rolls. Of course you can use your favorite rolls, but I find ciabatta to be particularly good with this recipe.

How To Make Them

  1. Combine the meat, chopped onion, feta, tomatoes, and salt & pepper in a large bowl and form into patties.
  2. Grill burgers over medium heat until juices run clear or internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F.
  3. Serve burgers on ciabatta rolls with lettuce and sliced onion. Top with my sun-dried tomato mayonnaise recipe.
