Lamb Burgers with Feta Sauce and Cucumbers

16

By using lamb instead of beef, and feta cheese instead of American, we've given these burgers an international makeover, creating a Greek recipe that can't miss.

  • Prep:
  • Total Time:
  • Servings: 4

Source: Everyday Food, June 2007

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground lamb
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons plain yogurt
  • 8 slices country bread (each 1/2 inch thick), toasted, if desired
  • 1 Kirby cucumber, cut lengthwise into ribbons with a vegetable peeler

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine lamb, curry powder, and 2 sliced scallions; season generously with salt and pepper. Mix gently with a fork (do not overmix); form into 4 oval patties to fit on bread (each 1 inch thick).

  2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Season patties with salt and pepper. Cook until browned and just cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes per side (reduce heat if browning too quickly).

  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix feta, yogurt, and remaining scallion, mashing cheese gently to combine; season with salt and pepper.

  4. Spread 4 slices of bread with feta mixture; top with cucumbers, lamb patties, and remaining bread.

Cook's Notes

Vegetable peelers can slice as well as peel; use one along the length of a Kirby. The ribbons will stay put on a burger and ensure some crunch in each bite.

    This recipe sounds delicious, as do many of the recipes here. I just wish the Nutritional information was included for these recipes. And I don't mean everything on a Nutritional label, just Calories, Carbs, and Fat would do fine.

    Please do not comment if you have not made the dish. If you don't like lamb or feta or whatever, then move on!

    Lamb burgers are delicious. We serve ours in pita bread with tzatziki on them and greek salad on the side.
