    I rarely give recipes 5 stars but these are absolutely outstanding and my veggie hating husband loved them too. you can't even taste the spinach. You must make these!

    Made to recipe except used fresh oregano and chilled the patties for several hours. Cooked on the bbq grill and the burgers were very moist & tender. Loved the aioli. Served with big salad (cubes of tomato, cuke, red onion, feta cheese, Kalamata olives & Maple Grove fat-free Greek dressing). Good results, but not outstanding.

    Loved the flavors but had trouble with the burgers falling apart on the grill. Anybody have any advice?

    Great burger. My husband was a little suspicious of the spinach in the burger, but they were so tasty that he didn't mind at all once they came off the grill. I didn't have any plain yogurt, so I used all light mayo and the sauce was great. I think I might make these for a cookout next weekend!

    Pretty darn good. I used Laura's Lean Beef (92/8) since the ground round was 85/15 and scared me off. I made four big burgers instead of five. I also added a teaspoon of greek seasoning instead of adding the salt and pepper. Next time I'd probably up the greek seasoning to two tsp. The spinach and roasted red peppers kept the burger super moist. Didn't have yogurt so subbed in ff sour cream. The aioli is definitely what makes the burger shine. Served with raw red bell pepper strips and hummus. Would make again.

    I truly enjoyed the blending of flavors on this burger. Plus its a great way to add tons of veggies to an every day diet. I put roasted garlic on top of the burger as well and used a whole wheat bun instead of a sour dough.

    Oh man, is this a terrific burger!! Cooked it on a med-hi set of coals (approx. 5 sec hand count) for three minutes, covered. Flipped, and cooked three more minutes covered, with the last minute closing the vents to build up the smoke. Let sit under foil for five minutes afterwards. Awesome! Also added organic red tip lettuce and some Cherokee purple tomato slices. Definitely a keeper. I really liked the feta sauce, but I do have to say, it doesn't taste anything like real aioli.

    Phrases that come to mind are "completely worthless" and "disgusting". I LOVE greek food and normally think Cooking Light has great recipes. I don't think anyone bothered to test this recipe. Too much spinach which results in the burgers falling apart on the grill and not tasting even remotely like hamburgers. The aoili was incredibly disappointing. Don't waste your time, money, or taste buds on this dud.

    The burger tasted good... but I think it tastes more like a meatloaf sandwich more than it does a burger. http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/greek-style-burgers-with-feta-aioli-10000000222815/#

    Yum! The feta aioli will be a staple in our house. Had a little trouble with the burgers staying together but totally worth it for the flavor.

    I love Greek food to begin with, and this burger did not disappoint! I only made two minor substitutions: I used Italian buns, and I did not have frozen spinach. It its place, I used a 5oz. container of fresh baby spinach that I steamed for a couple minutes before chopping. The feta topping is outstanding, as is the mellow taste of the grilled red onions. I will make this again and again!
