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!
