Greek Inspired Cheeseburgers

(adapted from a Weightwatchers recipe)


  • 1 pound(s) raw lean ground beef or grass fed beef
  • 1 tsp dried oregano, crushed
  • 1/4 tsp table salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 garlic gloves, minced
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 2 sprays cooking spray
  • 4 hamburger buns, whole grain
  • 6 tsp crumbled feta
  • 3/4 cup baby spinach leaves


  • In a medium bowl, combine beef, oregano, salt, pepper, garlic and onion. Gently form into four 3/4-inch-thick patties.
  • Coat a nonstick ridged grill pan with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat for 30 seconds. Place burgers in pan; grill for 4 minutes. Flip burgers and grill until cooked through to center, about 3 to 4 minutes more.
  • Place burgers on buns; top each with 1 1/2 teaspoons of cheese and some spinach. Serve immediately.

Yields 1 burger per serving.

6 points per serving
