This is my father-in-law’s secret recipe for “mpiftekia”, or burger patties. When we call something a burger in Greece, we’re specifically talking about the mince meat patty in a bread bun. “Mpiftekia” though is just the “burger patties” - very much a meal in themselves - which we eat with different sides. Our favourite way to eat these is alongside my mashed potato.

Whilst my father-in-law considers these the perfect meze, they’re a full-blown meal for us! There are so many ways to make a burger patty. For us, a successful result is soft, juicy, and not too crumbly. His secret to this is to add a shredded tomato for moisture. What’s more, my father-in-law’s method, as you’ll see below, is to add wine at the last minute. This transforms their flavour completely!
