Lamb-Feta Burgers With Yogurt-Cucumber Sauce

Oxmoor House JANUARY 2001

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1/2 pita round, 1 burger, and 2 tablespoons sauce)


  • 1 pound lean ground lamb
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fine, dry breadcrumbs
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh mint
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup crumbled peppercorn feta cheese
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 (6-inch) pita bread rounds, cut in half
  • 4 red leaf lettuce leaves
  • 4 (1/2-inch-thick) slices tomato
  • Yogurt-Cucumber Sauce
  • Yogurt-Cucumber Sauce


Combine first 8 ingredients in a large bowl. Divide mixture into 8 equal portions, shaping into 1/4-inch-thick patties. Spoon 1 tablespoon feta cheese onto each of 4 patties (do not spread to edges); top with remaining patties, pressing edges to seal well.

Coat grill rack with cooking spray; place on grill over medium-hot coals (350° to 400°). Place patties on grill rack, and grill, covered, 6 to 8 minutes on each side or until done.

Wrap pita halves in heavy-duty foil. Add foil-wrapped pita halves to grill rack, and grill 2 minutes or until pitas are warm, turning foil pouch occasionally.

Line each pita half with lettuce. Place 1 slice tomato and 1 patty in each pita half. Drizzle 2 tablespoons Yogurt-Cucumber Sauce over each pita half.
