This recipe was inspired by the Roasted Garlic Hummus Burger with Parsley and Dill Feta Spread I saw on a blog I read called Running With Guts. Homegirl has mad kitchen skills, and her recipe sounded amazing, but I just didn't want to work that hard so I tried to make an easier version with fewer ingredients and it turned out amazingly delicious. Trust me, y'all. If you like hummus, you're gonna wanna make this immediately!
For the Burger:
1/2 Tub of Garlic Hummus (Mine was a 227 g tub from Trader Joe's)
4.5 Tablespoons of Bread Crumbs or enough to form a dough that isn't sticky (mine were the organic kind from Trader Joe's)
Fresh Ground Pepper to Taste
For the Spread:
1 single-serve container Plain Non-Fat Greek Yogurt
4 Tablespoons of Reduced Fat Feta (I used Trader Joe's Fat Free)
1/2 Tablespoon of Dill (more if desired or if you can't see flecks of green in the spread)
Mix the hummus, bread crumbs, and pepper until a dough forms. Form patties with the dough. I was able to make 2 burger size patties. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Place the patties in the skillet and cook until it starts to brown. Flip and cook the other side. They will brown fairly quickly, so now is not the time to wander down the hall to put the clothes in the dryer or get distracted when Maury announces you are not the father.
While you are waiting for each side to brown, mix the yogurt, feta, and dill in a small bowl and set aside. If you plan to serve your burgers on a bun, now would be a good time to toast that sucker. And top them liberally with the spread. Once the burgers are browned on both sides, they are ready to serve.
I made these for lunch one day and liked it so much I ate the leftover patty for dinner. Hopefully you will enjoy them as much as I did!
