2. Prepare the meat patties: Place the slices of white bread in a mixing bowl and sprinkle the stock cube, onion-soup powder and mustard powder on top. Pour in the milk and then work the mixture into a paste.

3. Add the bread paste to the mince, as well as the feta and lemon zest and juice, and mix. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Divide the meat mixture and shape it into six patties. Cover and refrigerate until needed.

4. Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan and fry the patties until golden brown and done to your liking.
