DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, 1 clove minced garlic, basil, and dill. Cover and set aside.
  • 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.
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil grate.
  • 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.
  • 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.
