Cheesy Spinach Burgers

7 Feb

I first got this recipe from a cookbook from my mother-in-law, Favorite Brand Name Recipes.  The original recipe calls for a pouch of Lipton onion soup mix.  I don’t normally have Lipton onion soup mix on hand, and I always seem to forget it, so I improvise.  The ground beef, spinach and cheese are the same, I just out other things in place of the soup mix.  And I think the results are fantastic.  Tonight, I made this on my outdoor grill (have to keep using it to get my money’s worth out of it, right?), but I have made these on the George Foreman indoor grill and they are great as well.

Cheesy Spinach Burgers
Based on recipe here

What you need:

2 lbs lean ground beef
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1 tsp seasoned salt
1/2 cup diced onion, optional (or less, depending on your level of taste)
1 cup shredded cheese, I used cheddar or Mexican blend usually, but mozzarella would work too

How to make it:

In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients.  Form into 8 patties.  Cook as desired, until no longer pink.

    After reading your weekly meal plan, I was hoping that you’d post this recipe! We’ll see what Britney thinks of the spinach in it but she loves burgers and she’ll eat spinach leaves so hopefully it will be well received.

      You can’t really taste the spinach in the burgers, but depending on how fine you chop it, you can see the leaves. Also, I meant to put that the onions are optional, I know not everyone likes onions in their burgers, but we do, so I add them. Again, if you dice them fine enough, they aren’t as noticeable.
