Named after Zeus, the ancient Greek king of the gods, these moist, juicy burgers get a real flavor boost from classic Grecian ingredients like oregano and feta cheese.


3 tablespoons fat-free mayonnaise
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon salt

Ingredients for burgers:

1/4 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1/4 cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon pine nuts, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 pound lean ground beef
4 hamburger buns, split


In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic, oregano and salt. Cover and refrigerate until serving.

For burgers, coat grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill. In a large bowl, combine the spinach, cheese, lemon juice, pine nuts, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into four patties.

Grill, covered, over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear. Toast buns on grill for 1 minute or until lightly browned. Serve burgers on buns with reserved sauce.

Yield: 4 servings.
