Directions
To make the yogurt sauce
Combine all of your yogurt dill sauce ingredients into a bowl. Place in the refrigerator to marinate until you’re ready to assemble the burgers.

To make the quick pickles
In a saucepan, heat vinegar, sugar, agave, mustard seeds, garlic, crushed red pepper, bay leaf and salt until just boiling. Remove from heat and pour over sliced cucumbers. Bring cucumbers down to room temperature, then chill.

To make the patties
Sauté Melissa’s Perfect Sweet Onion and garlic. Add to food processor with remaining burger patty ingredients and blend until homogenous. Divide into 6 patties and pan sear on each side over medium-high heat. Finish baking burgers in a preheated 375°F oven for 10 to 12 minutes.

Assembly
Toast buns and spread about one tablespoon of Yogurt Dill Sauce on each bun. Add patty on bottom bun first, then stack buttered lettuce, pickled cucumbers and feta cheese. Gently place top bun on and enjoy!

Makes six burgers.
