Hump Day Burgers - Mediterrean Style -

I had some ground beef and chicken breast in my fridge that had to be cooked today. I really wasn't in the mood for cooking meat or eating meat. My husband is on the road, my daughter doesn't like ground beef, and my son is allergic to it. So, I am calling these burgers "hump day" because it was just one of those days in the middle of the week where I just felt "blah" about eating. I am also calling these "hump day" burgers for Donna of My Tasty Treasures. If you have not visited her blog, here is the link She posts her delicious looking food with naughty humor. I always get a chuckle out of her posts.

I looked in my fridge and was bored with propects of a plain cheeseburger with everyday cheese. I found some feta cheese and olives and had a great idea..... a feta cheese salad/topping. This was really tasty and very flavorful and I think if you are a fan of feta cheese you will love this idea:

Mediterrean Style Salad:
1 block of feta cheese, crumbled
2 - 3 sundried tomatoes. chopped
5-6 kalamata olives. chopped
handful of italian-leaf parsley, chopped
olive oil - just a drizzle
squeeze of fresh lemon juice
salt and pepper

I mixed all these ingredients together in a bowl and tested it out on a few crackers. It was really tasty on the crackers, so I went ahead and topped my burger with it. I thought it was really tasty and unique and decided to share it. This is a great feta salad for vegetables, crackers, burgers, chicken or lamb. I love salty food, so I really enjoyed it. This recipe would easily make enough to top off four burgers with a little leftover for the cook. You could even eat this alone on some fresh bread or serve it with hummus inside a pita. I could go on, but it's time to watch American Idol and I still have to cook that blasted chicken.

  1. I just had to leave a comment after indulging in the delightful Hump Day Burgers - Mediterranean Style. As a lover of both burgers and Mediterranean cuisine, this fusion creation truly hit the spot!

    The blend of flavors in these burgers was absolutely fantastic. The Mediterranean twist added a whole new dimension of taste and made for a refreshing change from traditional burger options. The combination of aromatic herbs, tangy feta cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, and olives created a burst of Mediterranean goodness with every bite.

    I also appreciated the attention to detail in the burger's construction. The patty was cooked to perfection, moist and full of flavor, while the soft yet sturdy bun held all the Mediterranean goodness together. The balance of textures and the harmony of flavors truly showcased the culinary expertise behind these Hump Day Burgers.

    What made the experience even more enjoyable was the accompanying side dish. The shoestring fries, lightly seasoned with Mediterranean spices, provided the perfect complement to the burger. The crispy, golden fries paired with the flavors of the burger created a truly satisfying and well-rounded meal.

    I commend the creativity and innovation of the Hump Day Burgers - Mediterranean Style. This fusion concept brings together the best of two worlds, allowing us to explore new flavors and expand our culinary horizons.
