Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Whisk egg in a large bowl until uniform in color; add ground beef, oats, onion, spinach, cheese, salt, and ground black pepper and mix with your hands until well blended. Form the beef mixture into 4 patties.

  • Grill patties until bottoms are brown, about 5 minutes; flip and continue grilling until brown, about 5 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into middle of burgers should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), about 5 minutes.

  • Transfer burgers to whole-grain buns.

Cook's Notes:

I often add Worcestershire sauce to add a little zip.

A little hot sauce is something else you can add for a bit of a kick.

For an even healthier variation; use a hearty lettuce leaf in place of a bun.

These are great.. Especially when I'm leaning out. I prepped them for the week and had them with cucumber salad and sweet potato chips. No bun. I shared this recipe with my personal training clients and bootcamp clients. This is great for people who are used to eating clean. Read More

I like that this burger has more ingredients than just beef- I feel like it can be more of a well-balanced meal adding nutrients and fiber. Read More

YUM! I thought these were wonderful burgers. I took out the ground beef from the freezer let it defrost but when I went to make the burgers - I realized it was ground elk and not beef so I used that. I did make my burgers a bit smaller so I got 6 out of this recipe. Will make this again with beef and I bet even ground turkey would work well Read More
