The Works Burgers

These burgers are amazing!  They are tender and full of flavor.  Make sure you make the oregano garlic mayo because it took the burger over the top.  The recipe comes from the blog Ungourmet, check it out for some more great recipes. 

1 lb  ground chuck
3-4 pieces bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1/2 cup chopped fresh spinach
1/2 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
1/4 cup chopped black olives or green olives (we like the green olives)
2 oz crumbles feta
2 cloves minced garlic
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 tbsp ketchup
1 tsp worcestershire
1/2 tsp salt
cracked pepper

fresh spinach (I used lettuce)
oregano garlic mayo (recipe follows)
whole wheat buns

Combine beef, bacon, mushrooms, feta, garlic, onion, ketchup, worcestershire, salt and pepper. Form into evenly sized patties (4-5 patties). Grill.

Place each patty on a toasted bun and garnish with spinach or (lettuce) and oregano garlic mayo.

Oregano Garlic Mayo

1/2 cup mayo
1 tbsp fresh or 1 tsp dried oregano (I used dried oregano)
1 clove minced garlic (I used 1/8 tsp garlic powder)

Here is a kitchen gadget that I love to use to make burgers. 
First put a layer of plastic wrap down for easy removal.
Perfect size burgers every time.
