Don’t let summer go by without trying these Greek-inspired burgers!

Combine garlicky sautéed spinach, briny feta and sweet-tart sun-dried tomatoes with Heinen’s CARE Certified ground beef to make flavor-packed patties perfect for a Mediterranean-inspired dinner.

Serve the burgers on Heinen’s pillowy fresh brioche buns and don’t forget a dollop of Heinen’s cucumber hummus on top. It’s an unlikely burger topping that offers a light and refreshing contrast to the savory burgers.

They’d also be great served with a classic Greek cucumber yogurt dip, known as tzatziki. 

Spinach and Feta Greek Burgers

Spinach and Feta Greek Burgers


  • 1/4 cup jarred sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained and chopped (oil reserved)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 oz. container Heinen’s baby spinach
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 lb. Heinen’s CARE Certified ground beef
  • 1/3 cup Heinen’s crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 tsp. Heinen’s dried oregano
  • ¼ tsp. kosher salt
  • 4 Heinen’s brioche buns, lightly toasted
  • Heinen’s cucumber hummus
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Tomato, sliced
  • Red onion, thinly sliced


  1. Drain 1 Tbsp. oil from the jar of sun-dried tomatoes and heat it in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 30 seconds. Add the spinach and continue to sauté until it completely wilts, about 2-3 minutes. Season the spinach to taste with a pinch of salt and black pepper. Allow to cool for a few minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese, cooked spinach, oregano and salt. Mix until well combined. Shape into 4 hamburger patties.
  3. Grill the burgers on each side for 5-8 minutes, or until your desired doneness is achieved.
  4. Assemble the burgers on toasted buns and top with hummus, lettuce, tomato and red onion.
