Campfire Series: Mediterranean Burgers

We're back from our 10 day road trip to the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. We braved it and camped out for half of our stay, proving for some more great campfire recipes to share. Although these burgers have ingredients that might not normally get packed in your dry goods tote, you can make the patties in advance, throw them in a ziplock bag and pack in the cooler. Then, when your campfire is ready, you just toss them on the grate for an easy campfire dinner. You'll feel like such a gourmet camper as you soak in the vibrant Mediterranean flavors of these burgers, you may never go back to regular old patties again.

Mediterranean Burgers

1/4 white onion
1 garlic clove
6-8 sundried tomatoes
1 pound grass-fed ground beef (Why grass-fed? Learn more here...)
1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1 tablespoon fresh basil, chiffanade
1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper

Finely chop onion, garlic, and sundried tomatoes and combine in medium sized mixing bowl. Add ground beef, feta, basil, salt, and pepper. Use your hands to mix until all ingredients are evenly distributed. Shape mixture into four patties. Cook over hot campfire grate (or grill) for about five minutes on each side until you reach desired doneness.

Serve topped with pesto (recipe to follow).
