In a large bowl, mix together ground beef, chopped mushrooms, chopped onion, and egg white. Form into four 4-inch-round patties; refrigerate, covered, for 15 minutes to set. Grill patties over medium-high heat for 5 minutes on each side, flipping once.

For the feta spread

Combine yogurt, feta cheese, dill, and garlic in a medium bowl and blend until smooth.
