  • 4 pita pockets
  • 2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 1 tomato, diced

  1. Crumble the ground beef into a bowl. Add the feta cheese, oregano, salt and pepper. Mix gently without overworking, then shape into 4 patties.
  2. Preheat the gill to medium-high heat. Put on burgers and cook, turning once, 6 to 10 minutes, or until desired doneness.
