  1. Who would have thought to add feta cheese and kalamata olives in burger meat. This is outstanding! I used ground beef. Made these this weekend for a small group of people while camping and everyone RAVED about them. This is a keeper, Amber of AZ.
  2. Good burgers! I didn't add the olives as I didn't have any, but otherwise followed the recipe. Thanks for sharing.
  3. I made these with lamb and fat free feta cheese. Served with tzatziki sauce #59336. Outstanding flavor!
  4. I used ground beef, doubled the recipe, and made four regular burgers that I served on buns. Wonderful tasty burger! Great recipe, Amber!


<p>I live in Arizona. Cooking is a relaxing hobby and I love finding healthy meals that have a lot of flavor and heart to them. Recipezaar has not let me down. I could not possibly pick a favorite cookbook. I love searching used bookstores for old cookbooks. I collect other cookbooks that look intresting or have healthy dishes. My collection is modest, but I love it. Also, I love the Taste of Home magazines. They have real food that real people cook. I would have to say my pet peeves are people who drive while talking on cell phones and people who cannot spell potato. It is p o t a t o not p o t a t o e. There is no e unless you are spelling the plural form of potato which is potatoes. I frequently see that word mispelled in recipes and it makes me think the recipe is somehow devalued because of the spellings. The Zaar system of ratings works for me. I do try to explain myself in my reviews and welcome any questions or comments on what I have said. It is not my intention to be mean-spirited if I did not like something (it is rare for me not to like a recipe though):) Recipezaar brings such a nice element to my life and I feel it has been enriched by the wealth of knowledge both in everyone's contributed recipes and on the forums. Also, it is such a nice feature that you can log on practically any time to get help with a recipe or ingredient that might otherwise be imtimidating to prepare by yourself.</p>
