Greek Feta Burgers
Ingredients
  • 8  ounces  90 percent or higher lean ground beef
  • 1  tablespoon  crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  snipped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
  • 1  clove garlic, minced
  • 1/8  teaspoon  ground black pepper
  • 1  whole wheat hamburger bun, split and toasted
  • 1/2  cup  fresh spinach leaves
  • 2  tomato slices
  • 1  recipe Cucumber Sauce
  •  Thin slivers red onion (optional)
Directions

1. In a medium bowl combine ground beef, feta cheese, parsley, garlic, and pepper. Shape mixture into two 1/2-inch-thick patties.

2. In a large nonstick skillet cook patties over medium-high heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into sides of patties registers 160 degrees F,* turning once.

3. Line cut sides of bun halves with spinach. Top with burgers, tomato slices, and Cucumber Sauce. If desired, garnish with red onion.

From the Test Kitchen*Tip:
  • The internal color of a burger is not a reliable doneness indicator. A beef patty cooked to 160 degrees F is safe, regardless of color. To measure the doneness of a patty, insert an instant-read thermometer through the side of the patty to a depth of 2 to 3 inches.
