Greek Lamb Burgers

Greek Lamb Burgers

Serves 6
No need to wait until grilling season to make these delicious burgers. As an alternative, pan-fry them in a bit of olive oil over medium heat until cooked to your desired doneness. Serve the burgers on whole wheat rolls with lettuce and tomatoes, if you like.
  • 6 ounces drained feta, crumbled
  • 1/3 cup kalamata olives, pitted and chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 3 tablespoons fresh oregano leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

In a medium bowl, thoroughly combine feta, olives, onion, oregano, salt and pepper. Add the lamb and with your hands or two forks, lightly bring all the ingredients together, taking care not to overwork the mixture. Form the meat into 6 patties of even thickness.

Place on a lined baking sheet, cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, light the grill or preheat the broiler. Cook the burgers for 5 to 6 minutes per side or until cooked to your desired doneness.
