Re-Inventing Hamburger Patties

The other day I went to Publix and they were cooking something amazing, it tasty delicious, but when I went to look at the ingredients of course it was made with a jar of Alfredo sauce, the bugger was dipped in eggs then it was breaded with a box of Italian Bread Crumbs a HUGE NO NO! at our home.

So how did I re-invent this perfectly delicious meal. Here you GO!


4 lean burger patties
2 eggs
2 cups of Panko break crumbs (Japanesse Bread Crumbs)
1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese
2 TBS Garlic Powder (got to season those crumbs)
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

Mock Alfredo Sauce by David Liberman (CLICK HERE)
2 cups baby spinach (uncooked)


Mix together the Panko, Parmesan cheese, Garlic, Salt and Pepper together in a shallow dish.  Mix the eggs add a hint of salt and pepper to the egg, then start breading the burgers.  Once you have all the burgers breaded let them sit for 10 to 15 minutes.  I believe the breading sticks better if you just let them sit for a bit (just my opinion).  Add about 1/4 cup of Olive oil to a saute pan, now you can either saute them in a pan on medium heat  (I do it this way, we all need a little oil) or you can put them in the oven Brush a little Olive Oil on them place in a pre-heated (350) over, for about 15 to 20 minutes depending how you like them cook.

In the meantime place the Alfredo sauce in a large sauce pan in medium heat and add the spinach  just to wilt the spinach once they have wilted remove it from the heat put aside.

Once all the burgers are done place them on a serving tray, pour the Alfredo/Spinach sauce over them, serve with pasta or rice and enjoy.
