Summer… the season of burgers. I don’t want it to end! If I just keep posting summer/burger recipes maybe we can pretend it will never end?!
Burgers on the grill are a go-to meal in my home because they’re quick, easy and always seem to satisfy. I’m normally a traditional burger with extra sharp cheddar cheese on top but I’m always up for a switch up.
I created this Greek style burger the other night and you always know when a recipe is good when the husband gives his approval. He’s normally pretty plain Jane with his meal preferences, but he loved this twist. I actually prefer just the burger (no bun) and a side of sweet potato fries.
If you’re a burger type of gal, you have to give the one a try!
1 large egg
1 lb. lean ground beef or ground turkey
1/2 cup thinly sliced baby spinach
1.3 cup chopped sundried tomatoes, packed in oil
1/4 cup crumbled feta
1/2 tsp dried basil (optional)
1/2 tsp dried oregano (optional)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp olive oil
4 hamburger buns (optional)
Condiments of your choice
Whisk the egg in a large bowl.
Knead in the meat, spinach, tomatoes, feta and spices.
Divide mixture into 4 patties and refrigerate for 1 hour to firm up.
Heat olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat until it shimmers.
Add patties to the pan and cook for ~5 mins; flip and cook another 5-7 mins or until they register 160 degrees with a meat thermometer.
Serve on buns (optional) with condiments.
NOTE: instead of hamburger buns, you may opt for Ezekiel/sprouted grain bread or lettuce as a “bun”
