Spinach Feta Burger

Today is National Hamburger Day………….let’s celebrate!!!!

This Spinach Feta Burger is not a traditional burger by any stretch, but that’s what makes it great. It expands your burger repertoire……..but not your waistline.

Bonus………only 5 ingredients………that’s right 5. Ground chicken, egg,spinach, fresh dill,and feta cheese. You can make them in a flash. You can grill them, or cook them in a pan indoors = versatile.

Bread/Bun is your choice. The first time I made them, I used a sweet Hawaiian bun, both Tim and I said, not the right choice. So, the next time we thought……… something crunchy. Tim picked up a rustic French loaf……….the fat kinda round ones, not the long skinny one. It was perfect! We toasted the bread………yum…….nothing better than toasted bread/bun for a burger.

We topped it with a Roasted Red Pepper Sauce. It was a perfect match………and kinda like ketchup……..Not!………….. It was sooooo much better.

The next time your are searching for a extra special burger, try our Spinach Feta Burger……and be sure to make the Roasted Red Pepper Sauce.
