Ingredients

  1. Check 1 1/4pounds ground chuck (85 percent lean or less)
  2. Check kosher salt and black pepper
  3. Check 2tablespoons olive oil, plus more for the grill
  4. Check 8 slices country bread
  5. Check 1/2cup low-fat Greek yogurt
  6. Check 4ounces crumbled Feta
  7. Check 1 large tomato, sliced into four 1/3-inch-thick slices
  8. Check 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves

Directions

  1. Heat grill to medium-high. Form the beef into four ¾-inch-thick patties. Use your fingers to make a shallow well in the top of each patty. (This will prevent overplumping during cooking.) Season with a total of ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper.
  2. Oil the grill and cook the patties with the wells facing up for 4 to 5 minutes. Flip and cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 155° F for medium, 4 to 5 minutes more.
  3. Meanwhile, brush the bread with the oil and grill until toasted, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt with the Feta. Form sandwiches with the bread, burgers, Feta-yogurt sauce, tomato, and mint.
