Tonight we had the burgers I prepared the night we had the Mediterranean Naan Pizza.  All that fresh spinach, feta, and black olives inspired me!  I bake my burgers, since I’m always cooking for a crowd.  It definitely beats standing over a hot stove.

3 lb. ground chicken (makes 8 large burgers)

1 egg

1/2 can pitted black olives, chopped

1/3 c. crumbled feta

1/2 c. chopped fresh spinach

1/3 c. (or more, if it’s still too wet and sticky) Italian seasoned panko bread crumbs

Combine all ingredients and refrigerate 30 minutes or overnight.

Approximately 45 minutes before you want to serve these, prepare a baking sheet by covering with foil and spraying it with coconut oil.  Preheat oven to 375F

Form meat mixture into patties.

Bake for 30 minutes.  Turn heat up to 450, and cook 5 minutes more to brown the burgers.

I’ve made a lot of burgers in my day, and these just might be my favorite!
