If there is no outside grill or barbecue, cook the burgers in the oven, under a heated grill. Alternatively, the burgers can be fried in a pan with a little oil.

For a quick garnish, mix some ewe's milk Feta cheese with mayonnaise, dried basil, and chopped sun-dried tomatoes.

For another savory variation, substitute the crunchy fried onion with the same amount of grated Feta cheese.
