Feta Burgers with Creamy Tomato Sauce

Easy feta burgers in a delicious creamy tomato sauce!
Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 4 oz feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 Tbsp fresh basil
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 Tbsp beef broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Combine ground beef, feta cheese, egg, chopped basil, minced garlic, and salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl.
  • Form the ground beef mixture into twelve equally sized patties.
  • In a large skillet over medium/high heat, cook the patties to desired temperature. I cook mine for about four minutes on each side before cutting into one to see if it needs a little more time. You may need to cook them in batches.
  • Using a slotted spatula, remove the patties from the pan and place on a paper towel-lined plate. Cover with foil to keep the burgers warm.
  • Drain the grease from the pan and lower the heat to medium/low. Add 2 Tablespoons of beef broth to the pan and whisk to deglaze, scraping any brown bits from the bottom of the pan.
  • Add one cup of heavy whipping cream, whisking well, then add Italian seasoning, green onions, and tomato paste. Whisk well.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste, then cook for about 5 minutes or until thickened.
  • Add the burger patties back to the pan, coat with sauce, then serve garnished with additional green onions if desired.
