Feta Burgers With Grilled Red Onions

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Oolala

From Bon Appetit, July, 2007. These newfangled burgers are stuffed with feta cheese. Pressing the center of the raw hamburger to form a slight indentation prevents the burger from puffing up in the center when cooking. Here for safe keeping and sharing.

The burgers were delicious. I used flavoured feta cheese and added some garlic in the beef.
