How to make Greek Burger Patties
Greek Burger Patties are simply made by kneading together the ground meat along with olive oil, bread soaked in water (or breadcrumbs), minced onion, grated tomato and a few herbs like parsley and oregano. You knead the mixture until all ingredients are well combined and then you shape a desired amount into round balls that you slightly tap with your hands to flatten them. You place them in a sheet pan and bake them.
