Feta Mushroom Burgers
My son-in-law gave me this recipe and I tweaked it to make it healthier. The burgers are so quick to whip up on the grill on busy nights. —Dolores Block, Frankenmuth, Michigan
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.

- Combine first four ingredients; mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into six 1/2-in.-thick patties. Mix vinegar and oil; brush over mushrooms.
- Place burgers, mushrooms and onion on an oiled grill rack over medium heat. Grill, covered, over medium heat until a thermometer inserted in burgers reads 165° and mushrooms and onion are tender, 4-6 minutes per side.
