Juicy Greek Lamb Burgers with Feta Cheese and Tzatziki Sauce is one of my very favorite burgers, and I’m hoping it becomes a favorite of yours too. If you love the big, bold flavors of Greek cuisine, then make these burgers, and make these burgers soon!
I love lamb, and I always have. My husband, however, hasn’t always enjoyed it because of what he used to call a “gamey flavor.”
I’m not quite sure when (or how) it happened, but thankfully over the past few years he’s come to enjoy it almost as much as I do, and because of that, I can make these Juicy Greek Lamb Burgers with Feta Cheese & Tzatziki Sauce on a semi-regular dinnertime rotation. And for that, I am thankful!
The ingredients for making Greek Lamb Burgers with Feta Cheese & Tzatziki Sauce is as follows:
For the sauce: Greek yogurt, diced red onion, seeded and diced cucumber, chopped fresh mint, dried oregano, lemon zest, lemon juice, minced garlic, salt, and pepper.
Combine all the tzatziki sauce ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well to combine. Chill until ready to use.
To make the burgers: ground lamb, crumbled feta cheese, diced red onion, lemon zest, dried oregano, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. You can also garnish your burgers with sliced tomatoes, and lettuce if desired. The full printable recipe can be found below.
In a large bowl, mix the ground lamb, feta, red onion, lemon zest, dried oregano, garlic, salt, and pepper.
Form the prepared Greek lamb burger meat into 5″ round patties and grill on an outdoor grill, or inside in a skillet, or even on an indoor grill pan for 5-6 minutes per side, or until your desired doneness.
