Greek-style burger

Was experimenting with the hamburger tonight and the following turned out well:[p]My problem - I'm trying to cut back on bread-type things and was looking for a hamburger that could stand alone - without a bun. This did it for me.[p]1-1/2 lb ground beef (I used ground chuck)
2 T ricotta cheese
3 t oregano
2 T lemon juice[p]Mix above, make 8 patties.
On top of one pattie place about 2T crumbled feta cheese
Place second pattie on top and press edges to seal, then press all to a uniform thickness.
With Egg at 350, cook burgers direct for about 8 minutes.
Turn, place a bit of crumbled feta on top, close Egg, keep at about 350 for another 8-10 minutes.[p]I will do this again.[p]Janet

    Leave out the lemon juice, and Dr. Atkins would be very happy. Actually, it sounds very good; probably try it this weekend.

  • Janet,[p]Ummmmmmmm, sounds tasty. I think I'll try it this Sunday for my daughter's baptism party!!! Thanks![p]lns

    Had to laugh at your Atkins comment since that diet is what precipitated the recipe! However, I think that lemon juice is "permitted" after the first couple of weeks. [p]As I thought about it, the Egg is a perfect tool for followers of low-carb diets! [p]Janet

    lo n' slo,
    I just had a left-over for lunch today and it was perhaps even better than last night. The flavors had become a bit stronger and much better dispersed. Yum![p]Hope you enjoy it![p]Janet[p]

    Just to clarify the above recipe:
    The recipe does use both ricotta and feta cheeses.
    The ricotta is mixed with the ground beef and the feta is used as a filling and topping.[p][p]

    That's what I'm doing with mine.
