Friday Night Dinner's what's for dinner tonight! GREEK STYLE!

Greek Feta Burgers
Enough ground beef for 4 burgers (assuming you are making 4) I made mine super hefty : )
About 1/4 cup finely diced onion...I like red because it's pretty
1/2 cup Feta cheese
Worcestershire Sauce (Can anyone actually spell that word???)
1 egg

Burger Mixing Tips:
  • Don't overwork them, it makes them tough.
  • Adding a little onion makes them super juicy!
  • Egg binds 'em together.
  • Shape your burgers a little bigger than you actually want them to be because they shrink up on the grill.
  • Also, make them thinner in the middle than on the edges so they will be an even thickness when they are cooked.

These puppies are ready for the grill!

Some toppings...lettuce, tomato, pickles and Caesar Feta Spread:
3/4 cup Mayo
1/4 cup Caesar dressing
1/4 cup Feta cheese
2 tbsp. onion
Mix it, spread it...YUM! This is awesome on anything...a burger, crackers, chips, your finger.

Zebra Cheesecake Pudding

1 sleeve graham crackers
1 stick butter (yes it's healthy....saturated fats ARE a food group, didn't you know?)
2 blocks cream cheese
1 cup milk
1 box instant vanilla pudding
1 box instant chocolate pudding
4 tbsp. powdered sugar

Mix the vanilla pudding with 1/2 cup milk, 1 block cream cheese, and 2 tbsp. powdered sugar. Do the same for the chocolate pudding. Crunch your graham crackers up really fine. If you have a food processor, it would be great for this, if not (like me), a plastic bag works fine. Melt butter and add to crackers. Mush the cracker mixture into a pan. Mush is definately a word.

Alternate adding vanilla and chocolate mixture on top (see pic). Lick the spoon for a taste of heaven. Use a knife to swirl vanilla and chocolate. You can drizzle with chocolate syrup if you would like...duhhh, of course, ALWAYS add more chocolate!

Yes, I left the napkin in the background. There were so many around the kitchen, I just didn't notice.

Refrigerate until you are ready to serve, or until you can resist it no longer!

Do other people really love food as much as we do???

Happy rest of the weekend!
