"Eggers Style" Burgers

The grilling season is here!  I never order a burger at a restaurant, for a few reasons, but I love a home made burger on the grill.

You're probably wondering... what's Eggers Style?  Well, meet the Eggers...

Or perhaps here's a better one of him and My Mr.

Mrs. (the red-haired one) and Child #1

I'm so sorry, I don't have a picture of Child #2.

These are our "holiday friends".  We don't see each other a lot throughout the year, but we've sort of fell in to this pattern where we see each other every Christmas Eve, July 4th, and this year we added Easter.  :-)  While searching for photos to introduce you to them I realized, I don't have very many photos of this family that we love.

Anyway, this year on Easter, the Eggers invited us over for a "non-traditional" Easter dinner.  Their words, not mine.  Actually they wanted to get together not on a holiday, but Easter was right around the corner, so we sort of invited ourselves for that day.  It seemed appropriate.

For dinner, we had the option of a plain hamburger or an Eggers Style hamburger.  And because they were so good, I decided the next time I made burgers it would be this way.

2 lbs Ground Beef
1 1/2 cups spinach
1 cup of parmesan cheese, freshly grated
4-6 cloves crushed garlic

You can add or subtract any of the flavorings.  I didn't really get a measured recipe from the Mrs.,  so I just sort of eyeballed it, and this is what I think my measurements were.  We like garlic, and I could taste it.

Mix all the ingredients together and form hamburger patties.  I made 8 burgers from 2 lbs of beef.

Grill them up to perfection and serve with your favorite toppings!

What's YOUR favorite way to eat a burger?  I'd love to hear from you!
