Feta & Tomato Beef Patties

Sunday was the day of "OH MY GOD THANKSGIVING IS UPON US! Why aren't these household projects done yet!? People are coming to our house!!" so cooking took a backburner. Which is not to say I didn't cook, but that it was just something I threw together so we would be properly fortified to do battle against The Dread Wall-Mounted Toilet Paper Holder and its friends The Pictures That Have Yet To Be Hung.

So I made this:



And it was yummy. And took 30 minutes at most. Huzzah. (Yeah, I know they're more ball-shaped than patty-like, but that's because they shrink and plump up a bit in the oven).

Feta & Tomato Beef Patties

Yield: 5 patties
Prep Time: 10 mins.
Cook time: 20 mins.
Total time: 30 mins.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb grass-fed ground beef
  • 1 cup crumbled feta
  • ½ cup minced sun-dried tomatoes
  • ¼ cup minced red onion
  • 2 Tbsp salt-free Italian seasoning blend, divided [Penzeys Tuscan Sunset]
  • 6 mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 small green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 small red onion, halved and sliced thin
  • 1 Tbsp sun-dried tomato paste [Amore]
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

Instructions

  1. Add beef, feta, tomatoes, minced red onion, and half the seasoning blend to a large bowl. Mix well to combine.
  2. Shape into five similarly-sized patties (a half cup measure is useful for this).
  3. Place patties on a small rimmed baking tray and bake at 400°F for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through.
  4. While patties cook, sauté the mushrooms, peppers, and onions in olive oil until tender. Stir in tomato paste and remaining Tuscan Sunset seasoning blend.
  5. Serve patties topped with pepper mix.

When I make the black bean and beef patties, the recipe yields six patties ... but this recipe only yielded five. Same amount of beef. Wouldn't expect the feta and tomatoes to squish down more than the beans. I don't know. They were delicious, anyway.
