Feta and Sun-Dried Tomato Stuffed Burger Recipe

A huge thank you to Verizon for providing me with a DNA for review purposes and thus being the catalyst for the best stuffed burger recipe.

Does anyone else get tired of making the same old things all the time? Today I was in my kitchen, pacing from the fridge, to the pantry, to the lazy susan and back again. No matter how many times I shifted through our food nothing inspired me. Finally I threw my hands in the air and admitted defeat.  Earlier this month I had subscribed to a recipe newsletter but it wasn’t any help. I decided to check out what google play had to offer and ultimately downloaded food network’s In the Kitchen app to my Droid DNA.  I ended up adapting a delicious recipe for Feta Sun-Dried Tomato Stuffed Burgers. Honestly, I have had one burger, in my entire life, that rivaled this one in both taste and size. That burger came from the Gordon Ramsey restaurant in LA if that’s any indication of it’s caliber.

It turns out my DNA is perfect for recipe apps because it’s large screen shows the majority of the information. I don’t have to constantly zoom in or scroll while I cook – which is great when dealing with raw, sticky or greasy food. Plus, it’s camera is perfect for appeasing my newest obsession with Instagraming pictures of my creations.
