Kaftah Burgers

This recipe uses the roasted pepper relish from the previous post as a topping for the burger along with some feta cheese and red onion. J used a bun but I used a pocketless pita for the bread instead. This burger tasted DELICIOUS. The meat was very flavorful and I would definitely use this recipe for normal kefta kebabs. The only thing I would consider is using less cilantro or chopping it more finely in the future. I used a recipe from Cooking Light as a jumping off point.

Kaftah Burgers (adapted from Cooking Light)

13 oz meatloaf mix (mixture of beef, veal and pork)
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tbsp dried parsley
2 tbsp breadcrumbs
3 tbsp chopped cilantro
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander seed
1 egg
1 tbsp dijon mustard
2 garlic cloves, minced
salt and pepper

  1. Combine all ingredients and form into patties.
  2. Heat nonstick skillet and cook burgers until they reach the desired level of doneness.
  3. Serve topped with feta cheese, onions and roasted pepper relish.
