Ingredients
 
 

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • ½ cup crumbled Feta cheese
  • ½ cup artichoke hearts marinated in olive oil, drained, finely chopped
  • ½ cup Kalamata olives, pitted, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup almond meal
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh oregano, washed and dried
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary, washed and dried
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • a few turns freshly ground black pepper
  • olive oil for the grill

Sun-Dried Tomato-Lemon Mayonnaise

Instructions
 

  • Combine ingredients. In a large mixing bowl, use your hands to evenly combine all of the ingredients.
  • Shape the burgers. Shape the mixture into 6 evenly-sized burgers -- each one should be about ¾ cup to 1 cup, and they should at least an inch thick.
  • Grill. Lightly coat an outdoor or stove-top grill (or satué pan) with olive oil, and preheat. (Next best to a grill is a cast iron skillet.)  When the grill or pan is very hot, put on your burgers. You should hear a sizzling sound -- if you don't, wait! You won't get a nice caramelization and "crust" on the burger if it's not hot enough. Grill or sauté for about 4 minutes, then flip the burgers over and reduce the heat to medium-low. Grill for another 4 minutes or until the desired doneness (rare, medium, etc.).

Sun-Dried Tomato-Lemon Mayonnaise

  • Combine ingredients. Mix the three ingredients together in a small bowl.

Assembly

  • Serve the burgers with the Sun-Dried Tomato-Lemon Mayonnaise, along with buns, lettuce, tomato, avocado, etc.
