Yield
5 sandwiches

This burger—stuffed with roasted bell peppers and spinach—carries Greek flavors in every bite. We've topped it with a tomato slice, lettuce leaves, and our low-fat version of the garlicky French mayonnaise aioli (ay-OH-lee) made more flavorful by adding feta cheese.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare aioli, combine first 5 ingredients in a food processor; pulse 1 minute or until smooth. Cover and chill.

Step 2

Prepare grill or broiler.

Step 3

To prepare the burgers, place onion slices on a grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray, and cook 2 minutes on each side. Set aside.

Step 4

Combine the beef and the next 9 ingredients (beef through crushed garlic) in a large bowl. Divide the beef mixture into 5 equal portions, shaping each portion into a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Place patties on grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray, and cook for 6 minutes on each side or until burgers are done. Spread 1 1/2 tablespoons aioli over top half of each bun. Place patties on bottom halves of buns, and top each with 1 onion slice and top half of bun.

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!

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.

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.

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/#

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.
