Spinach Feta Burgers (Baked)

Nobody in my family is a vegetarian. Nor are any of my friends. 

And then I met my boyfriend’s vegetarian friends- who were hosting a Memorial Day BBQ. 

And this put me in an internal dilemma: what about the ribs? Sausages? Mostly importantly, the hamburgers?!? 

Yet I persevered through (aren’t I such a trooper?). And I even contributed by bringing spinach burgers (which I keep calling “pretty patties” in my head- Spongebob, anyone?). Although I prefer the meat, this was the prefect alternative for the occasion (and maybe this 4th of July weekend too!)
