Feta Lamb Burgers with Tatziki
Serves 4

1.5 lbs ground lamb
2 tablespoons fresh dill, minced
3 tablespoons crumbled feta
1 large egg
Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper
4 brioche buns
Sliced Persian cucumbers
Harissa for heat, optional


1 grated Persian cucumber (dry off with a paper towel to absorb extra moisture)
2 cups Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon chopped dill
Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper
Vegetables or pita bread for dipping

Make It:
In a medium bowl, combine the ground lamb with dill, feta, and egg and mix thoroughly. Divide the mixture into quarters and press into patties slightly larger than your buns. Season on the outside generously with salt and pepper.

Bring a large frying pan to high heat and saute your burgers for about 5-7 minutes per side. You want to achieve a nice dark color. You do not need to add any oil to the pan as the burgers are already nicely fatty.

Toast the brioche buns then assemble by adding a generous spread of tzatziki to both sides of the bun, then adding your burger patties, sliced cucumbers, and harissa (if you want the heat)
