Do you like spinach or blue cheese? We like both and a favorite meal is Spinach Blue Cheese Burgers.

The combination of spinach and blue cheese is so good that you forget that this burger is missing the meat.

Spinach is combined with onion, garlic, Italian bread crumbs, an egg, salt and pepper, and blue cheese crumbles. If you don't like blue cheese, use Feta.

The mixture easily molds into six patties ready to be either cooked on the grill or in a skillet on the stove top.

After about 5 minutes of cooking on each side, the Spinach and Blue Cheese Burgers are ready to eat. Warming the buns adds to the pleasure of this tasty vegetarian meal.

These burgers are also great topped with spicy brown mustard.

There’s nothing like a real hamburger prepared on the grill, but for a change of pace, this burger can’t be beat.
