Spinach Feta Greek Burgers

These healthy Greek burgers are made using ground beef mixed with spinach, feta, and sun-dried tomatoes, then drizzled with a delicious tzatziki sauce. For a low carb option, ditch the buns.

These Greek burgers plus my Hawaiian steak kabobs have made their way to the top of my summertime grilling wish list. Whether you prefer to grill your burgers, bake them, or pan sear them, these Greek burgers will be sure to satisfy your burger cravings and you will love all of the flavors and textures going on here. Most prominent are the sun-dried tomatoes and feta cheese, followed by the spinach and tzatziki sauce. It is such a killer flavor combination.


Ingredients:

For burger patties:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 5 ounces fresh baby spinach leaves chopped
  • 2 ounces crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/3 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For buns and toppings:

  • 4 whole-wheat sandwich buns
  • 1 ounce fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 to mato sliced
  • 1 small shallot sliced
  • 1/4 cup tzatziki sauce

Instructions:


  1. Combine and mix together all burger patty ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Form into 4 patties. Refrigerate patties for at least 1 hour to harden.
  3. Heat a pan over medium heat, or use a grill. Working in batches, drizzle the inside faces of the buns with a bit of cooking oil and place them face down on the pan. Cook until toasted, a few minutes. Transfer to a serving plate.
  4. Increase to medium-high heat or keep at medium heat to lessen the amount of smoke (it will just take longer to cook). Drizzle cooking oil over the pan. Working in batches, cook the patties until charred on both sides and the internal temperature reaches 160 F, flipping occasionally. Add more oil if the pan gets dry.
  5. Assemble the burgers by distributing the meat and toppings among the buns. Serve hot.
