Today is national burger day!  I have a flavorful burger for you today!   This burger is not made from beef, but is made out of bratwurst!  Also, instead of traditional burger toppings, I used Greek Yogurt cucumber sauce and feta cheese.  These flavors paired with the bratwurst perfectly!

A few weeks ago, I posted this recipe for Pretzel and Beer Grilled Bratwurst¬†¬†using Johnsonville Bratwurst. ¬† The pretzel and beer combo just reminded me of Octoberfest and Germany. ¬† I wanted to incorporate another country’s cuisine into a recipe using Johnsonville Bratwurst Grillers. ¬† I chose Greek.

I love Greek food. ¬† I am not Greek, but my dad’s best friend is. ¬† Whenever they visited us in Chicago, we would go to¬†amazing Greek restaurants in the area and I became hooked to Greek food at a young age.

These bratwurst patties are packed with rich flavor- and it just reminded me of the meat used in all of my favorite Greek dishes.

I made a super easy Greek yogurt Tzatziki Sauce using fresh herbs for tons of flavor!

Do you want to know a trick when making really good Tzatziki sauce?  Use an English cucumber instead of a regular cucumber.   English cucumbers are the little ones and they are much less watery than normal ones.  This way, your sauce will not end up as watery.   Man, I loved this yogurt dip with the bratwurst.  So tasty!

I also paired this Greek Bratwurst Burger with roasted Greek potatoes.   My mom has made these Greek potatoes for years.  They can be made on in a foil packet on the grill or in the oven.   These potatoes are marinated with Greek flavors and are seriously addictive!

This was such an amazing dinner. ¬†My kids just gobbled them up! – as did my husband. ¬† I can’t wait to incorporate these Johnsonville grillers into our summer cuisine!

Happy Burger Day!
