Ingredient Checklist


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.
