These burgers are juicy and full of flavor. Even people who don't really like lamb have enjoyed these burgers. You can double the recipe and freeze half of the patties in wax paper to eat at a later time. Fine to place on the grill frozen (just add to the cooking time).

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.

    Advertisement
  • Mix the ground lamb, ground beef, mint, ginger, 1 teaspoon garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper in a large bowl until just combined. Divide evenly into four portions and shape in to large patties. Set aside. Mix Greek yogurt, lemon zest, 1 clove garlic, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a bowl; cover and refrigerate.

  • Cook the lamb and beef patties on the preheated grill until the burgers are cooked to your desired degree of doneness, 3 to 4 minutes per side for well done. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Place the slices of onion and green tomato on the grill. Cook until lightly charred, about 1 minute on each side.

  • Spread yogurt sauce over the sliced ciabatta rolls. Assemble each burger by placing the patty on the the roll, and dividing the feta cheese slices over the patties. Top with a slice of grilled tomato, grilled onion, and 2 leaves of arugula, followed by the top half of the roll.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

These lamb burgers are the perfect combination of easy-with-wow factor and great for a group. It's worth the time to make the simple yogurt sauce to go with it but I've used store-bought Tzatziki in a pinch too. Also I love these with caramelized sweet onions and regular tomatoes on top but what a great way to use all those green tomatoes! Fantastic recipe as is! Read More

This recipe has been a favorite of our Make-Ahead Mamas cooking group for over three years. We make it every summer during our Summer Grilling Cooking Party and it's a great gourmet alternative to a traditional hamburgers for your next BBQ. To save time the day of your BBQ make these ahead of time! Simply freeze the uncooked patties in a single layer on parchment paper on a cookie sheet then stack the frozen patties in a freezer container or Ziploc Freezer bag. Thaw the day before your party or cook the patties directly from the freezer (just add a few more minutes to the cooking time!). Delicious! Read More

We never had lamb burgers before and we loved this recipe. I did alter it though. I omitted the mint and used chive and I the juice of 1/2 lemon into the meat. Moist and delicious. For the sauce I subbed sour cream for the yogurt as that is what I had on hand and I added chopped cucumber the rest of the lemon juice and the garlic. We didn't have sliced feta so we used crumbled on the bottom of the bun and put our burgers on top of the feta. My kids just loved these burgers! Read More

These were tremendous beautiful and deep flavours. I chose to not stuff them as I wanted nice flat burgers and they tend to round out in my opinion when stuffed. I simply added the cheese paste to the top of the burgers on the grill turned out amazing. Used the Bobby Flay indented burger tops as well and came out with perfectly big flat 1/3 lb burgers! Making them again tonight and thought I would drop a line. Read More

They were so good. I'm making them again. I might try roasting the garlic that goes in the sauce first. They came out great. Also thought sliced cucumbers and grilled onions were good options on top. Read More
