Combine all of the burger ingredients in a large bowl (it helps to mix the dry ingredients together first and add them to the wet ingredients as you stir, for better integration). For this, your clean hands are the best mixing tools.
Heat a grill pan, frying pan or outdoor grill to medium high (about 450°F to 550°F). When the grill is ready, use tongs to rub the grate with several layers of paper towels soaked in vegetable oil, or carefully drizzle the oil onto the hot pan.
For a low fat alternative, use low fat beef or bison and low fat mayo with skim cheese. All the classic taste of an American burger, with a decidedly Mediterranean flair in a small but satisfying portion.
