Greek Lamb Burgers

Greek Lamb Burger

Sometimes, you just feel like having a burger. I love burgers, all of them, in any incarnation. Beef, pork, lamb, chicken, turkey, portobello, sometimes even veggie patties. I don’ t know what it is about burgers, they just seem to have universal appeal. Who doesn’t like sinking their teeth into a perfectly crusty bun, slathered in your favourite condiments, teetering with just enough toppings and getting down to that juicy, flavourful patty? It’s truly a heavenly experience n’est pas?

I was having one of those cravings the other night and decided to make lamb burgers. I usually make good old fashioned beef, but I just couldn’t get the thought of lamb and feta and creamy sauce out of my head. You can tell just how excited I was to actually eat my sumptuous burger by my seriously lacking photos. I wanted that burger while it was hot and juicy and I just couldn’t get the camera to focus fast enough. You get the idea.

These burgers would be even more fabulous served up with some deliciously crisp baked fries with aioli. An all time favourite combination of mine. Whatever you decide to pair with these burgers, just make sure it’s small. I don’t make no sissy burgers.

Yogurt & Feta Sauce

150g goat feta
1/2 cup no fat plain yogurt
1 clove garlic, grated or minced
juice of half a lemon
pepper
1/4 tsp fresh mint, chopped fine
1/4 tsp dried dill weed

1. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix well and set aside in refrigerator for at least an hour. It needs time to let the flavours combine.
2. Meanwhile, make the burger patties.
