Mediterranean Lamb Burgers

Rated as 4.78 out of 5 Stars

"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)."

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

This was wonderful! Didn't alter any of the directions/ingredients and it turned out fabulously. My husband was just raving about these, will make it again!

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 s...

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 pas...

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...

We liked these pretty well, but I thought there was too much mint. My husband said he likes it better when I make gyro meat, which is made with a similar lamb/beef ratio but has different spice...
