Greek Style Spinach and Feta Burgers

I am not very adventurous when it comes to cheese.  I like the basics: mozzarella, Parmesan, cheddar, American, Swiss.  But anything with mold or a fancy stinky cheese is not something I go for at all.  I consider feta cheese adventurous in my book. :)  I bought some feta cheese recently and then I realized that I better find a recipe to use it up before it became a moldy stinky cheese.    I decided to make a Greek style burger and this is what I came up with... kind of like a burger meets a spanakopita.

1lb ground beef or lamb (lean)
1 cup fresh baby spinach chopped
1 Tbs finely minced mint
1 tsp finely minced fresh oregano or 1/2 tsp dried
1 Tbs finely minced fresh parsley
1/2 small red onion chopped small
salt and black pepper to taste ( I used McCormick burger seasoning)
1-2 cloves of garlic grated

2-3 Tbs mayo
1 Tbs sriracha
salt and black pepper
2 Tbs of feta 

Finely chop spinach,onions, mint, oregano and parsley.  Add it to the ground meat with the, grated garlic, feta cheese, salt and black pepper.
Make four equally sized burgers.  Try to make the center thinner so the burger cooks evenly.  Cook for several minutes on each side with some a little oil in a skillet or cast iron pan.   Make sauce if your desire. Serve in burger bun with more feta cheese and cucumbers. Enjoy.

Note:  My husband and kids ate it with a bun, I ate this burger with a salad for a low carb meal option.

  3. Oh my gosh, I'm drooling.If this is the kind of dish you pull together because you're afraid of feta going stinky, I'm sending you a pound of roquefort. :)

  4. Feta is fabulous! Oh I like the sound of that...heehee I just got a new grill and burgers are first on my list. Now I think GREEK burgers are the first on my list - Ramona these are awesome and adventurous to boot! :D


  5. Well it's good that you are branching out to other cheeses, you have to start somewhere right:) I love stinky and blue cheeses, feta too. Your Greek burgers sound and look so good. Great job Ramona!:)

  6. We both love Greek food and your Spinach-Feta Burger looks absolutely delicious! Thank you for the inspiration.

  7. Wow, that looks fantastic! Definitely changing how I'm going to do burgers!

  10. This is my kind of burger! My mouth is watering.

  11. Yum, yum, yum. I love eating lamb. This burger sounds divine.

  12. We make such boring burgers...it's time to shake things up! Your Greek touches sound fantastic!

  13. I fully support you in this proper culinary solution. By itself, cheese and other products from it are delicious. Cheese with mold and other newfangled things are just disgusting.

  14. Oh yeah. I love burgers. And not for the fact that they are deliciously delicious. And not for the fact that they are popular throughout the world. And not because they have a small price. I just like to eat meat.


  15. Comparative politics may be defined in about one hundred ways but it simply refers to the systematic study of organizations, political institutions, processes and behavior. The comparative politics essay is an interesting essay which implies a lot of interesting issues on policy and interesting for discussion.

  16. So many delicious recepies I always find on your blog. I would rather try to cook another delicious thing from if someone else could write an annotated bibliography for me. I coud even bake an apple pie for that kind person. If I only knew where to find this kind person....

  17. Aww, how tasty it looks like. I need to cook those Feta burgers. I am finishing posting an article on https://specialessays.com/grant-proposal-writing-service/ and I will buy all products to prepare this burger.

  18. I really like to eat. Cooking is my hobby. I even wrote an article about it. I found how do college professors check for plagiarism. It helps me write different essays and articles.

  19. Hi guys! Wow? it looks very tasty. I think more and more readers after reading will go to cook immediately according to your recipe. Thank you for the opportunity to leave my comment. I also want to share a platform where students can buy research outline https://exclusive-paper.com/buy-a-research-paper-outline.php from professional writers on Exclusive-Paper.com.
