Cucumber Salad:

Big Greek Gus Burger:

Roasted Tomatoes:


  1. Prepare a grill or grill pan for medium-high heat.
  2. For the salad: Mix the sliced cucumbers with the garlic, Greek yogurt, dill, mint and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. For the burger: In a bowl, mix together the ground beef, oregano and garlic. Form into four 6-ounce patties. Grill for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or to desired doneness.
  4. Spread the burger buns with mayonnaise. Layer the bun bottoms with a burger patty, a roasted tomato, and then some red onions and feta. Cover with the bun tops. Serve with cucumber salad on the side.

Roasted Tomatoes:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Slice the tomatoes in half through the meridian and place cut-side up on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and oregano. Roast until the tomatoes are beginning to collapse and have browned a bit on top, about 2 hours.
