Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, 1 clove minced garlic, basil, and dill. Cover and set aside.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat and cook 1 clove minced garlic and onion for 4 to 6 minutes, or until translucent. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil grate.
  4. While the grill is heating, gently mix together the cooked garlic and onion, ground beef, pork sausage, feta cheese, red wine, egg, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Do not over work the meat mixture. Divide into 8 equal parts and form into patties.
  5. Grill patties on preheated grill for 5 to 10 minutes per side, until well done. Toast the split buns on the grill for 1 to 2 minutes. Assemble the burgers by spreading 1 1/2 tablespoon of the cheese and herb spread to both the top and bottom of each roll. Place patties on the bottom half of the rolls and stack a slice of tomato, sliced red onion, and a leaf of lettuce on each burger. Add the roll tops and serve.

GREAT TWIST ON THE BURGER! A few notes: Use 80% Lean ground beef. Onion and garlic need not be pre cooked before adding to meat mixture. A must try!

This was good. Making sure that the burger is cooked all the way is the hard part.

This has to be absolutely one of the best things I have ever tasted! I woke up this morning thinking about it again! The flavor is almost indescribeable it is so rich. The burgers were so juicy and the cheese spread really cemented the medley of flavors! Wow! We aren't big traditional burger fans in our house, so we doubled the size of the burgers so it made four instead of eight and we had them as hamburger steaks. YUMMY!!!

This burger was very moist and flavorful! Great combination of ingredients to change your average burger. I love the addition of the feta cheese. I added more pork sausage to get a few additional burgers. I liked the cheese spread but the burger is good without it! Will make again using ground turkey next time.

Fabulous recipe "as is". We have also made it with ground lamb in the place of ground pork.

This was so good... I'm a burger guy and this was impressive... I made them too big like usual, but it was flavorful and moist... no complaints.. The only thing I did different was follow someother reviewer and didn't saute the red onion/garlic for the burger... I think I grilled long enough to cook them nicely. Thanks for the great recipe... I will cook again and pass along.

These burgers are fabulous! I accidentally bought ground pork instead of pork sausage and it tasted great. I also haven't cooked the garlic and onion, just added them it. Still tasted great! The key is not overworking the mixture and forming the burgers loosely. Wow! Thanks for a great way to pep up our summer!

These were fantastic. We had a little trouble keeping the burgers together on the grill, but they tasted great.
