Used different ingredients. This turns blah burgers into a gourmet meal! My husband and I loved it. Like other reviewers, I added some oregano and basil in addition to the thyme, and I used a bit more yoghurt to make them very moist. I also ended up using crumbled gorgonzola (a type of blue cheese) instead of the feta, which had gone AWOL. (the gorgonzola was great, but I'm sure feta would be equally good) Since the burgers were fairly thick, we cooked them on low heat on the grill. Served with the Greek Style Potatoes (which were excellent and easy to prepare) and artichokes. YUM! - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. So Freakin' Simple It's Scary! I omited the thyme and added fresh oregano for a more traditional Greek flavour. - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. As suggested, I substituted oregano for thyme. Wonderful flavours - a definite keeper. - 29 Sep 2008
