Greek Lamb Burgers

    Lamb Burgers were great. The pitas that I bought were whole wheat and were difficult to get the burgers in without breaking the pitas apart. I used low fat tzatziki sause just to reduce prep time. Would definitly make again but would look for better pita bread.

    Delicious! My husband and I agreed that we would definitely want to make them again. I used all lamb, because that's what I had. We grilled the burgers, and put tomato slices and spinach dressed with a little balsamic vinaigrette in the pitas with the burgers. Didn't use the yogurt sauce, though. Served with oven fries and a cabbage salad. Shaping the burgers into ovals helped them fit in the pitas easily.

    Fantastic take on burgers! I made these and served them on toasted wheat hamburger buns. I spread a tablespoon of plain yogurt on the top bun instead of the usual mayo. I didn't make the sauce, but instead topped with a mixture of 1/2 c. feta cheese, 1 diced tomato and 1/2 diced cucumber. I served with dark beer and greek-seasoned oven fries.

    I have rosemary and oregano growing in my garden so this recipe caught my attention when I decided to serve lamb burgers to dinner guests. Alas I had no "reduced fat" feta (only full fat!) Guests had fun stuffing their pitas with the garlicky rich burger, lettuce and tomato and spooning in the Tzatziki Sauce. Make more of the sauce than recommended as guests used way more than a Tablespoon! Served with a fingerling potato and green bean salad, it was a great summer meal. I will make it again. I read other reviewers tips about making the burgers into an oval and looking for "better" pitas that don't break apart. Thanks reviewers!!

    This is a great recipe. I just the burger on top of the pita and then top with a greek farmers salad, tzatziki and hummus on the side. Rave reviews from guests every time, but also a weekly favorite of my kids.
