For the patties:

  • 1 lb 90/10 ground beef
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 oz crumbled feta
  • 2 cups chopped fresh baby spinach
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 6 whole grain buns or sweet potato buns
  • Optional toppings: sliced tomato, crumbled feta, baby spinach leaves

For the aioli:

  • 1 1/2 tbsp garlic minced
  • 1 egg at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups olive oil
  • 1-1 1/2 tbsp fresh lemon juice to taste
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper


  1. Either pre-heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat or set an outdoor grill to medium heat.
  2. Mix together the ground sirloin, egg, garlic, feta, spinach and seasonings in a large bowl until well combined.
  3. Form mixture into 6 patties.
  4. Cook on grill (or skillet) until no longer pink in the center, 10-15 minutes.
  5. In a blender or a food processor, puree garlic with egg. With the food processor or blender running, add the olive oil at a very slow, steady and thin stream. You should see the mixture start to emulsify. Add lemon juice to loosen mixture. Once the mixture has emulsified, add sea salt and pepper and combine for another 10 seconds. Taste for seasoning. Transfer to a bowl, cover and refrigerate.

  6. Again, if you'd like an easier method, just add 1 clove minced garlic, 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice and some freshly ground black pepper to 2 tablespoons full fat greek yogurt.
