Grilled Feta Burger with Dill Potatoes

Last night for dinner I decided to make a burger that I perfected over the course of about a month back in 2009: the Grilled Feta Burger! This burger is not something I’d eat while cutting, but it’s not really a true splurge meal, either. I grill 6-ounce 93% lean ground beef patties and serve them with raw spinach, raw red onions, spicy brown mustard, feta cheese and tomatoes all on a garlic-rubbed toasted Kaiser roll.

This burger has obvious Greek influences, and would probably be really good with lamb instead of beef if you like lamb. We forgot to buy red onion, and so I had to use white onion for last night’s burger. It was still excellent, but raw red onion is really the way to go (don’t listen to Scott Conant, he’s nuts).

I served the burger with the easy, but insanely delicious, dill potato dish that I made last weekend for the first time. To make this dish, I just cut the red potatoes into bite-sized pieces and steam them in a vegetable steamer over boiling water for about 10 minutes until the potatoes are soft but not mushy. While the potatoes are cooking I melt 3 tablespoons of unsalted butter and stir in 2 tablespoons of fresh chopped dill, 3 cloves minced garlic and a little salt. When the potatoes are done steaming I toss them with the butter dill sauce and they are ready to go. 1.5 tablespoons of butter (per serving) only adds 150 calories, and it’s worth it. You could probably even cut the butter down to 2 tablespoons (1 tablespoon per serving) if you wanted to.

I’ll be adding both of these recipes to the JSF Recipe Section sometime this weekend. I’d do it now, but Lisa and I are going to an art and foliage festival this morning and we need to get going.

I’m taking my camera to the festival, so if I get some nice shots I’ll add them to my new photo journal, In The Blink Of An Eye.
