Greek Fetish Hamburgers & Giveaway (Closed)

Last weekend we had a tailgate with friends. We all enjoyed a day filled with food, fun & football. I got busy setting the scene for the festivities and My Yanni who doubles as My Grill Master was in charge of the grill and cooked up a delicious storm. I’ve already shared our fun & easy idea for an everyday bratwurst…

A Brat-Kabob.

And now I can make you wait no longer to share the mouthwatering Greek Fetish Burgers.

These burgers are a crowd-pleaser that are packed with a big flavor punch. My Yanni (who happens to be Greek) and I are big fans of feta. We have an ongoing joke at our house that “everything tastes betta with feta.”

These burgers are no exception.

Greek Fetish burgers are filled with salty crumbled feta, diced sweet onion, tangy sun dried tomatoes and dried oregano.

I told you that they were packed with flavor.

We garnished our burgers with a mesclun mix that included a little (more) feta & red peppers tossed in olive oil & red wine vinegar.

And to take it a step further, topped it all with a dollop of tzatziki.

Oh heavens was that a tasty mouthful.

Can I hear an “OPA?”

We served our burgers with some delicious  Bush’s® Homestyle Baked Beans for the perfect hassle-free game day combination.

The down-home flavor of the Homestyle baked beans in a tangy sauce with specially cured bacon and brown sugar were the perfect match for My Yann’s Greek Fetish Burger.

The Greek Fetish Burgers and beans filled the bellies of all the fans and made our game day tailgate a success! Be sure to make some at your next tailgate!

Now it’s time for a fun giveaway from Bush’s Beans! Enter to win this awesome prize package that will make your game day entertaining even more fun! The giveaway includes the following…

    Your burgers look great, I LOVE Feta Cheese. What a great flavor combination. My favorite game day food is chili, everyone can grab it when they want it and it’s not messy to eat in front of the game :)

    I LOVE feta. Last night we had chicken with quinoa with spinach, tomatoes and feta!
    For games, sliders are always great, but our new fall fave is roasted pumpkin nachos!

    I would have to agree – hamburgers – and some sort of beans, salad, and dessert.

    O.K., I’m not entering the contest but I will confess that I think I’m developing a fetish for these hamburgers (pun intended) but they look so delicious I couldn’t help it.

  27. Posted October 26, 2011 at 11:40 pm | Permalink

    Love the sound of these burgers! I think chips and guac are probably my all time favorite game food. Actually, any game food is my favorite because I much prefer to enjoy the snacks rather than watch the game, lol.

    I love to make different types of burgers for gameday. The stuffed BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger is my favorite. But my tailgate is not complete without Bush’s Homestyle Baked Beans. I love the chunks of meat in there.
