The best result is achieved if you use charcoals.


  1. Pass through the blender one cup of quaker oats.
  2. Mix in a blender one carrot, one green pepper and one onion together with one spoon of olive oil.
  3. Beat slightly two eggs and keep aside.
  4. Mix parsley with dill and oregano and keep in a bowl.
  5. Mix in a large bowl the minced meat with the puree of vegetables, the eggs and the quaker. Pour the ingredients gradually and mould with your hands until the ingredients are well mixed.
  6. Add the herbs and mould again.
  7. Finally add pimento, pepper and lemon zest and mould again.
  8. Shape the mixture into large thin flat burgers, place them in a platter, cover and keep in the fridge for an hour.
  9. In the meantime prepare the potatoes. Peel them and cut them in cubes. Boil them for 5 minutes in order to soften.
  10. Then put them in a baking dish and pour a mixture of olive oil (1/3 cup), salt, pepper, mustard (2 spoons) and one juice of lemon.
  11. Bake in preheated oven until they take a golden brown color on top.
  12. Remove from the oven, cover with foil and keep warm.
  13. Cut the tomatoes in thin slices and put one slice on top of each burger.
  14. Grill or charcoal the burger on both sides as desired. We prefer them juicy and soft inside.
  15. Serve with potatoes. Season with salt. We preferred not to add any salt in the mixture.

Ground pork is preferred because it is more fatty than ground beef and makes the burgers juicer. Ground lamb given more taste.
