Greek Sloppy Joes
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
I plan to make it this week for the first time. I can already see that I want to make changes to the recipe. Normally, if I'm cooking a new recipe for the first time, I'll cook it as is and then make changes in follow up recipe attempts but, I can see why many people say the flavor is bland. So, my plan is to add Tzatziki sauce to spread on the bun, add grilled red onions to the fetta cheese, and I might use some Greek Style Seasoning in the meat. In addition, I'll pair the burger with some rice pilaf as the side. I'll post an update after I make the burgers to share my experience.
I made this using pizza sauce instead of tomato sauce, white onion instead of red, and a little more oregano. Added sliced black olives for a more Mediterranean taste. Made the recipe much more flavorful.
This is ok enough for a quick meal. I don't think the red onion is the best choice for the recipe. Maybe stick to white or yellow onion.
It was good but I'm ot sure that I would make them again. Both my kids turned their noses up despite loving feta cheese. My son did end up eating a small bowl of the meat and cheese, but no one raved about them. The only change I made was ground turkey in place of ground beef. My husband I thought they were a little bland.
This was very easy and a nice change of pace from regular sloppy joes. The Greek flavor is subtle though, so add more seasonings and feta if you desire a prominent Greek flavor. We used turkey instead of beef, and added a pinch of cinnamon.
Very good, my husband loved it
Not a lot of Greek flavor to this, other than the feta. Next time, I would add Greek seasoning to make it stand out from other sloppy joe recipes. It was easy to make, and did taste good.
I made this because I happened to have the ingredients and it seemed simple. This was very easy and quick but it was also excellent. I added a dash of hot pepper sauce and a tsp of brown sugar.
This was a great weeknight meal, which only took about 20 minutes to prepare from start to finish. The feta cheese is what makes this for me - otherwise I tend to agree that it tastes like spaghetti sauce. Next time I'll add some garlic and maybe some souvlaki seasoning to amp up the Greek flavor. Still a great base recipe to keep as is or make it your own!
Not a keeper. Tasted like spaghetti with meat sauce on a bun, so the feta did very little to the overall taste.
