Tomato Basil Hamburgers

I don’t really like to toot my own horn and honestly, I don’t think I am that great of a cook. I follow recipes well, but you know, I’m not so good at coming up with them. However, the Rice Krispies Challenge has really gotten me in the mood to experiment in the kitchen. And boy, am I happy that I have! Starting with this new recipe!

These burgers are really SUPER yummy. I took them to my husbands work to get a real taste test. They passed with flying colors. Many a compliment. And these men know food. So with the sun starting to shine again and the grill getting dusted off, try your hand at these for dinner!


Tricia @ onceamonthmeals.com


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • .33 cups fresh basil, chopped
  • .33 cups feta cheese crumbles
  • .33 cups julienne sun dried tomatoes, oil packed, drained


In a large bowl, mix together allof the ingredients until well incorporated. Make a large ball of the meat and then divide into fourths (see pictures below). Make 4 quarter pound hamburger balls and then mold into patties. Cook on hot grill for 3 minutes on each side or until hamburgers are cooked to desired doneness. Serve on buns with additional toppings if desired.

Freezing Directions:

You can make up these hamburgers and freeze them using sheets of wax paper to divide them and then place them in freezer bags. To serve: Thaw. Cook on hot grill for 3 minutes on each side or until hamburgers are cooked to desired doneness. Serve on buns with additional toppings if desired.

Servings: 4

(Originally, I put the feta in the center as seen below. However, upon taste testing we decided it would be better throughout. You can do it either way.)

    I love homemade burgers. I’d use ground turkey, which I thing would be just as good. Thanks for the recipe.

    In Ohio, we are housebound due to subzero temperatures, so dreaming of summer and hamburgers on the grill. I made these and they couldn’t have been simpler or more tasty. To further simplify the process, Trader Joe’s has a jarred julienned sun-dried olive oil packed tomato. Went together so fast, and grilled up (inside grill) beautifully. Thanks, Tricia!
