MMMMM, I love burgers! Only a couple of other things I like better. So I am always searching for great recipes to make better burgers, and now that I am trying to lose weight I am also looking for something smart too. Let me share these with you.

Greek Feta Beef Burger
Condiments deliver flavor but often a lot of calories. A light yogurt sauce supplies healthy zip. Serves 4

6 oz nonfat plain Greek yogurt
4 oz hothouse cucumbers (unpeeled), coarsely grated (about ½ cup)
½ clove garlic, crushed to a paste
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 lb lean ground beef (93 percent or 95 percent lean)
4 oz zucchini, finely diced (about 1 cup)
½ cup crumbled reduced-fat feta
1/3 cup finely diced red onion
½ tsp dried marjoram
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
Vegetable oil cooking spray
1 jar (7 oz) roasted red peppers, drained
4 sourdough rolls, split
Shredded romaine (optional)
Sliced cucumber (optional)

In a bowl, combine yogurt, cucumbers, garlic and juice; set aside. In another bowl, mix beef, zucchini, feta, onion, marjoram, salt and pepper. Form beef mixture into four ¾-inch-thick patties. Coat a grill pan or grill rack with cooking spray. Grill patties over medium-high heat, flipping once, about 5 minutes each side, until internal temperature reaches 160?. Divide roasted peppers evenly among bottom roll halves; top with 1 burger, ¼ yogurt sauce and lettuce and cucumber, if desired. Top each with other half of roll.

THE DISH: 459 calories per serving, 11 g fat (5 g saturated), 46 g carbs, 2 g fiber, 40 g protein
