Greek Lamb Burger

You know when you get a craving, and you just have to fulfil it? That’s what brought on this Greek lamb burger recipe. When I was living in England, lamb made it on the menu pretty regularly, and while I was super leery at first, I eventually came around to the idea and even started to love lamb. Sadly, it isn’t exactly the most popular meat in these parts, but once I had it in my mind to eat a lamb burger, I just couldn’t squash the idea.

So on Friday night, I walked down to my local supermarket in hopes of a prepared or already formed lamb burger patty. No such luck. This meant that if I really wanted a lamb burger, I would have to make it myself!

When I think of lamb, I think of two things, mint and feta. So I bought my lamb and a couple of other ingredients, and off home, I went to make up my first Greek lamb burger. I must say it turned out just as good as I was hoping! So if you are feeling a little adventurous or just need a change from your usual beef or turkey burger, give this Greek lamb burger a try; you won’t regret it!

Ingredients
 
 

  • ½ pound ground lamb
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 medium lemon zest
  • 1 small handful mint fresh, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons feta cheese
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper

Instructions
 

  • Add all your ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined, then form into patties.
  • Because I don’t have a grill, I started mine off on the stove and let them finish cooking in the oven. Preheat oven to 350°F. Brown on both sides in a non-stick, oven-safe pan that has a lid. Place lid on your pan and cook in the oven for another 5 to 8 minutes.
  • I decided to serve my burger on a bed of greens and top it with some homemade Greek yogurt sauce.
