Greek Bison Burgers

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/greek_bison_burgers.html

From EatingWell:  March/April 2009

Feta and spinach not only add great flavor to these Greek-inspired burgers, but also provide moisture and texture to lean ground bison. The yogurt sauce is a perfect condiment, with much less fat than regular mayonnaise.

Ingredients

Burgers

Yogurt Sauce

Bun & Toppings

Preparation

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Place bison, spinach, feta, 2 teaspoons dill, oregano, cumin, garlic, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a large mixing bowl. Gently combine without overmixing. Form into 4 oval-shaped patties roughly the size of the rolls.
  3. Oil the grill rack (see Tip, below). Grill the burgers until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 155°F, 5 to 6 minutes per side.
  4. To prepare yogurt sauce: Combine yogurt, lemon zest and juice, 1 teaspoon dill and mint in a small bowl. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  5. Assemble the burgers on rolls with the yogurt sauce, cucumber, tomato and onion.
