Greek Bison Burgers
Preheat grill to medium-high.Advertisement
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.
Oil the grill rack (see Tip, below). Grill the burgers until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 155 degrees F, 5 to 6 minutes per side.
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.
Assemble the burgers on rolls with the yogurt sauce, cucumber, tomato and onion.
Note: Greek-style yogurt is made by removing the whey from cultured milk, which gives the yogurt an extra-thick and creamy texture. Look for it with other yogurt in large supermarkets.
Tip: To oil a grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)
