For the Bruschetta Topping
  • 3 C Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 C Feta Cheese

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine all the bruschetta ingredients, except the reduction, and set aside.
  2. Combine the mayonnaise, bread crumbs, soup mix, basil, oregano, garlic powder and ground beef in a large bowl and mix by hand until thoroughly incorporated. Split the mixture into 8 balls and shape into patties.
  3. Prepare a grill at high heat, brush the grate down with oil and grill each burger for 3 minutes on one side before flipping, then another 3 minutes for medium rare, and around 6-8 minutes for well done.
