What's For Dinner: Spinach and Feta Salmon Burger

I know that Whole Food's nickname is "Whole Paycheck," but honestly, there are a lot of deals to be found. Case in point: (another round of) salmon burgers! Sure, they're not quite as cheap as a 79 cent box of Mac and Cheese, but at under $4 per serving, (and a whole heckuva lot healthier than that blue and orange box!), these burgers are a good budget buy for me. Last time I featured teriyaki burgers; tonight we gave spinach and feta burgers a try. I think I liked these burgers even better than the last kind. Since D was heading out to a meeting, I was in charge of cooking them up this time. I started by making a pot of quinoa (1/2 C quinoa in 1 C water, bring water to a boil, then reduce heat, cover, and let simmer for about 15 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed). To cook the burgers, I sprayed olive oil cooking spray on a medium-sized skillet, which I then heated over medium-high heat. Once the skillet was heated, I added the burger patties and cooked each side for about three minutes. I finished the burgers in a 350 degree oven for five minutes. End result? Perfection. In addition to the quinoa, I also served the burger alongside a spinach salad with (more!) feta cheese and a balsamic dressing.
