This burger came from a Greek inspiration. The cheese spread is worth making alone to use with anything you wish.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, 1 clove minced garlic, basil, and dill. Cover and set aside.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat and cook 1 clove minced garlic and onion for 4 to 6 minutes, or until translucent. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil grate.
  4. While the grill is heating, gently mix together the cooked garlic and onion, ground beef, pork sausage, feta cheese, red wine (or broth), egg, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Do not over work the meat mixture. Divide into 8 equal parts and form into patties.
  5. Grill patties on preheated grill for 5 to 10 minutes per side, until well done. Toast the split buns on the grill for 1 to 2 minutes. Assemble the burgers by spreading 1 1/2 tablespoon of the cheese and herb spread to both the top and bottom of each roll. Place patties on the bottom half of the rolls and stack a slice of tomato, sliced red onion, and a leaf of lettuce on each burger. Add the roll tops and serve.

Such a delectably different burger! Pork sausage....wasn't sure if it was supposed to be italian sausage or not? I just used regular old breakfast pork sausage. Turned out the mix is perfection! I did leave the salt out, since the feta has lots of salt in it. The spread is delicious, and I'm sure I'll use it on other things. I really enjoyed this naughty delight at the end of a really long work week! Sorry it was dark when I took photos! Thanks for sharing....made for Newest tag game.
