These were a nice alternative to the standard burger. I actually did not bother with the aioli and just put feta on the burgers after flipping them. I thought about actually putting a slice of feta in the middle of the burgers, and I may try that in the future. I omitted the red onions because they are too strong and tenacious for my taste buds. In the burgers I ended up with a 16-oz bag of spinach, but I did not have the parsley, and I REALLY squeezed it dry, so I only used about ? cup of breadcrumbs. I also used powdered garlic rather than fresh for convenience and also because it makes for a more uniform distribution of the garlic. I was a bit concerned about whether they would stay together on the grill, but they were absolutely fine. It%u2019s a bit difficult to get the cooking time right with grilling because the spinach makes them very different from a regular burger, but we did fine with these. We have some extras in the freezer now, and I will look forward to having them again sometime soon.

We really loved these! They are so rich! I love that they are full of "hidden" vegetables. I didn't puree the aioli, but left it chunky. Added a little lemon juice to the aioli.
