Greek Feta Burgers
photo by rosie316
- Ready In:
- 8 ounces ground beef
- 3 tablespoons crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese (I use the already seasoned garlic and herb version)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons snipped fresh flat-leaf parsley
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 whole wheat hamburger bun, split and toasted, unless you want both top and bottom bun
- 1⁄2 cup fresh spinach leaves
- 2 slices tomatoes
- thin slivers red onion (optional)
- Prepare Recipe #492963 set aside. In a medium bowl, combine ground beef, cheese, parsley, garlic, and pepper. Shape mixture into two 1/2-inch-thick patties.
- In a large nonstick skillet, cook patties over medium-high heat for 4 minutes per side or until desired doneness. I like mine medium to medium rare. Your choice, of course. Line cut sides of bun halves with spinach. Top with burgers, tomato slices, and sauce. If desired, garnish with red onion.

I made these tonight for hubby & I. Wonderful flavor! I have to say upfront, I'm not a big fan of Feta... but being mixed into the burger it brought out a new flavor for hamburgers. I did not have fresh parsley, so I used 1/2 teaspoon of dried. I also used pre-packaged salad mix containing spinach. Stupid me... before even tasting it, we melted some cheddar slices on them (sorry, force of habit)... next time I will not :) I toasted some pretzel buns on the flame of my stovetop (pretzel buns are cheap at Aldi's), and added some pre-cooked bacon (Oscar Mayer) to them. (I did not make the Recipe #492963... but maybe next time. I just used my mustard & mayo dressing). This turned out to be one of the best pan-fried burgers I've had (I normally pan fry or oven bake, and hubby does the grill). Thanks for a new take on a burger. (Made for ZWT9)
Awesome burger, I loved the flavour! With the feta in it, there is no need for salt, and the burger is spicy and juicy, not dry at all. Made it with gluten free bun and my own sheep yoghurt tzatziki.<br/>Thanks for leaving us this yummy burger recipe, dear Pammy :)<br/>Made for the Cookathon in memory of Pam November 2013.
