Beef and Feta Burgers - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card below. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb!

Treat yourself to a burger night and get stuck into these Greek-inspired Beef and Feta Burgers. We’ve made the patties from low fat beef mince mixed with onions, garlic, black olives and mint, building up layers of flavour without adding loads of calories. 

In traditional Greek cooking you will find lamb is often used as a main ingredient. Swapping this for lean beef is an easy way to make your meals more slimming friendly, without feeling like you’re compromising. 

The succulent burgers are topped with a refreshing mint, yoghurt and creamy feta sauce that makes them taste so indulgent. There’s nothing more satisfying than biting into these juicy Beef and Feta Burgers – you won’t feel like this is diet food! 

What diets are these Beef and Feta Burgers suitable for?

You can make these Beef and Feta Burgers gluten free as long as you use gluten free wholemeal bread rolls. 

As always, take extra care when cooking for people with allergies and be sure to use different utensils, cookware and preparation areas.

How Weight Watchers friendly is this Beef and Feta Burgers recipe?

Don’t forget to add a label with what it is, and on what date you put it in the freezer!

From chilled: Place the burger patty in a microwavable container with a loosely fitting lid and heat for 4-7 minutes until piping hot throughout. Assemble your burger following Step 6 of the recipe.
