These easy burgers taste much fancier than they actually are. The key is to use fresh basil though—not dried, as it imparts a bright, sunny flavor.

  • 1 small bunch basil, chopped $1
  • 3 oz. crumbled feta cheese $4 for 8 oz.
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced Pantry
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped $0.50
  • generous pinch each of salt and pepper Pantry
  • olive oil (for brushing grill or grill pan) Pantry
  • 4 hamburger buns $3 for 6
  • 1 avocado, sliced $1.50

Oh man, that sounds really good! I bet that would pair excellently with a Viogner or even a Chardonnay.

MOVE OVER RACHAEL RAY! These were DE-LISH! Gabi, way to go! My boyfriend just scarfed 2 burgers in about 5 minutes- so kudos to you.
Took maybe 10-15 to make these and clean-up was easy- because you didn’t have to do much to prepare. Lots of flavor- not a ton of fat or calories (I went with the super-lean meat and used EVOO for the pan).

Can’t wait to try another recipe! Keep em coming!

Made this yummy recipe. They fell apart on grill. But still tasted awesome. What did I do wrong? Thanks for your help.
