Patter Fam Sauces

Greek Burger – serves 8
2 red bell pepper  
Burgers:  
3 pound lean ground pork  
7 ounces crumbled feta cheese  
2 cups finely chopped raw spinach (rinsed and drained)  
1/2 cup bread crumbs  
2 egg  
2 clove garlic, minced  
1/2 cup chopped onion  
3 sprigs fresh basil, coarsely chopped  
2 sprigs fresh mint, coarsely chopped  
2 sprigs fresh parsley, coarsely chopped  
salt and ground black pepper to taste  
8 pita bread  
2 tomato, sliced  
7 leaves lettuce

Roast the bell pepper, seed and stem after removing the charred skin.  Finely dice and set aside.

Prepare the tzatziki sauce.

Preheat a cast iron griddle over medium heat, and lightly oil.

Place the roasted red pepper, ground pork, spinach, bread crumbs, egg, garlic, onion, basil, mint, parsley in a bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and mix gently with your hands until evenly combined. Divide the meat mixture to form 14 equal 4 1/2 inch patties.

Cook on the preheated grill until the burgers are cooked to your desired degree of doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Halve the patty and place half in each half of toasted pita bread.  Sprinkle with feta cheese, add lettuce and tomato and drizzle tzatziki sauce over each meat half.
