picBaVU89First off, this is not my picture. I got it off of google images. This recipe makes 8 servings at 16 weight watchers points plus points each. It is pretty darn delicious. It is from Bon Appetit magazine’s July 2007 issue, page 113.




Feta Burger with Grilled Red Onions

3 pounds lean ground beef (points calculated with ground sirloin)
1 cup (packed) crumbled feta cheese
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
8 large garlic cloves, peeled
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
Nonstick vegetable oil spray
2 medium red onions, peeled, each cut crosswise into 4 slices
8 whole wheat hamburger buns
2 large tomatoes, each cut crosswise into 4 slices

Break up beef in large bowl. Sprinkle feta, oregano, salt, and pepper over; toss. Divide into 8 portions; form each into 41/2-inch patty, pressing in center to form slight indentation.

Puree garlic in processor. With machine running, gradually add 1/2 cup oil; process 30 seconds.

Spray grill rack with nonstick spray. Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Brush onion with 1 tablespoon oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place burgers and onions on grill. Cover; cook 5 minutes. Turn; cook until onions are charred in spots and burgers are medium-well, about 4 minutes longer.Transfer to plate. Brush cut sides of buns with garlic oil. Place buns, cut side down, on grill; toast about 1 minute. Turn; cook until heated, about 1 minute.

Place burgers on bun bottoms. Top each with onion, tomato, and bun top.
