Here’s another yummy variation on the traditional burger. My husband has been wanting to make a feta stuffed burger for a while so we decided tonight to try it out. I had some ciabatta rolls left over from earlier this week so we toasted them up and they were the perfect bun for this burger. Give it a try. It was great!

Feta Stuffed Burgers with Pesto

1 lb ground beef chuck
1/2 tsp italian seasoning
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
crumbled feta cheese
prepared pesto

Combine all ingredients except the feta and pesto. Form a thin patty with the ground beef. Place a small amount of feta in the center of the patty. Form another thin patty and place on top. Press together to seal the feta inside the meat. Grill until done, about 15 minutes. Serve on toasted ciabatta rolls with pesto.  

Makes 4 burgers

    These look awesome! I love feta, but my husband hates it. I may have to make these just for myself as a treat!
