Directions

  1. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Cut the red bell pepper in half from top to bottom; remove the stem, seeds, and ribs; place pepper cut-side-down onto the prepared baking sheet.
  2. Cook under the preheated broiler until the skin of the pepper has blackened and blistered, about 5 minutes. Allow the blackened pepper to cool and steam in a paper bag for 5 minutes; peel and dice; set aside.
  3. Stir together the 2 ounces feta cheese, mayonnaise, lime juice, the 1 sprig chopped mint, and the 1 sprig chopped parsley in a small bowl; set aside.
  4. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  5. Place the roasted red pepper, ground beef, feta cheese, spinach, bread crumbs, egg, garlic, onion, basil, the remaining mint, and the remaining parsley in a bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and mix gently with your hands until evenly combined. Divide the meat mixture to form 4 equal 4 1/2 inch patties.
  6. Cook on the preheated grill until the burgers are cooked to your desired degree of doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Serve burgers on warm toasted Kaiser roll with the feta cheese spread, fresh tomatoes, and lettuce.

I made the following changes: frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed mostly dry, shredded mozzarella, and a large shallot in place of the onion. Also, I only used 1 sprig each of mint and basil. These were pretty decent, very juicy burgers. If anything, I under seasoned them, so they were a bit bland, but nothing a little seasoned salt won't fix. Served one patty over sliced tomatoes and cucumbers with a large dollop of artichoke jalapeno dip over all. Great lunch!

No thanks. Way too much effort for a so-so result.

I made these this summer for my friends and they were a huge hit! Make sure to serve them with the Tzatziki sauce.

Great recipe! I used a 10 oz. box of frozen spinach (thawed and squeezed dry) and my son requested meatloaf instead of burgers so I just mixed up the meat mixture and put it in a loaf pan, baked for about 1 - 1 1/4 hours. I also made the spread for us to put on the meatloaf as we plated it. Great will definitely make again!

This did take alot of prep, specially cause i had to go and buy all the fresh herbs these burgers required but it was well worth all the effort. It was delicious! I found that the spread needs to be thinned out with a bit more mayo and lime juice but other than that i followed the recipe with very good results.

This was so easy and tasted great. I used frozen spinach (thawed and squeezed dry) and I used a small jar of roasted red peppers from the store. This cut out a lot of prep time. Plus one pound of meat made 5 large burgers. Next time we will make 6 patties out of it. Very hearty meal. It even stuffed my husband.

Good flavor! I did add a little Greek yogurt to the meat to help it stay together but it was still a little too tender - had to use care in flipping. It browned up really fast so a lower temp is recommended. Very juicy and so nice to have something different!
