WOW, were these awesome!! And the sauce for the burgers was perfect!! This was great out on the grill and I made it with the Easy Skillet Pimiento Mac 'n' Cheese as a side :) YUMMMY!

Great recipe! I did not have all of the spices on hand (no rosemary and no dill), I only used 2 T of olive oil in the spread, and I cooked the burgers in a skillet. The olive spread was delicious (if you like olives) and was exactly what I was looking for to complement a lamb burger. I strongly suggest using the grill - because of the fat content of lamb, I was constantly having to pour off the drippings that accumulated in the skillet. The lemon presence is pretty strong, considering it is in both the sauce and the meat. I love lemon and thought it added a fresh zing to the burger, but would consider cutting back to 1/2 T lemon zest if making for others. I'm thinking that some yogurt sauce (in addition to the olive spread) would taste pretty wicked. Great, creative recipe. I just wish the calorie content wasn't quite so high... Thanks!!

Great burger, not at all time-consuming. I omitted the olives from the spread and it had a wonderful, "fresh from the garden" taste.
