Healthier Mediterranean Stuffed Burgers

Serves 4

What happens when Registered Dietitian Amber Pankonin gets ahold of burgers? An RD intervention: A lighter, healthier version of the classic summer staple with a Mediterranean twist.

  • 1 pound Certified Piedmontese 95% lean ground beef
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 8 teaspoons feta cheese, half reserved for serving
  • 4 teaspoons sundried tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 8 basil leaves
  • 8 tomato slices
  • 8 cucumber slices
  • 4 teaspoons black olives

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Using clean hands, combine the ground beef with garlic salt and onion powder and portion into 8 (2-ounce) portions and flatten.

Arrange one teaspoon of feta and one teaspoon of sundried tomatoes in the center of four of the patties. Enclose the stuffing for each burger inside a patty by covering each with a 2-ounce patty and pinching the edges together to form four, stuffed, 4-ounce burgers.

Cook the burgers on the preheated grill grate until desired doneness. Remove from grill and serve each burger topped with 2 basil leaves, 2 tomato slices, 2 cucumber slices, black olives, and a sprinkle of feta.
