Zesty Za'atar Burgers

Zesty Za'atar Burgers

Here's a simple way to add bit of flavor to your burgers, met loaf, or stews. Za'atar is wonderful spice mixture that usually contains thyme, sesame, and sumac (a wild food I love to harvest), which adds a Middle Eastern flair to the beef. Whenever possible, I prefer to cook my burgers on an open fire, as the char from the heat adds such great flavor.
