Zeus Burgers

Grilling season is here!! So excited that my hubs doesn't have to stand outside in the freezing cold and grill up our food anymore... These burgers were a nice jump back into summer. They mixed it up a little bit and were super tasty! Enjoy!!

Zeus Burgers
(recipe found in Taste of Home Healthy Cooking)

3 tablespoons fat free mayonnaise
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/8 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1/4 cup crumbled reduced fat feta cheese
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon pine nuts, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 pound lean ground beef
4 hamburger buns, split

In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic, oregano and salt. Cover and refrigerate until serving. For burgers, coat grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill. In a large bowl, combine the spinach, cheese, lemon juice, pine nuts, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well.

Grill, covered, over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160 and juices run clear. Toast buns on grill for 1 minute or until lightly browned. Serve burgers on buns with reserved sauce.
