We combine ground lamb with lean ground sirloin for a less fatty patty; you can also use all sirloin. Try our grilled asparagus spears in place of fries: They get deliciously charred in the pan.
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
8 ounces lean ground lamb
8 ounces 90% lean ground sirloin
4 (1 1/2-ounce) whole-wheat hamburger buns
1/4 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons reduced-fat feta cheese, crumbled
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup baby arugula
How to Make It
Combine first 9 ingredients in a bowl, stirring just until combined. Divide the lamb mixture into 4 equal portions; shape each portion into a 1/2-inch-thick patty.
Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add patties to pan; grill 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove patties from pan. Add buns to pan, cut sides down; grill 1 minute or until toasted.
Combine yogurt, cheese, mint, and juice in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Place patties on bottom halves of buns; top evenly with feta mixture, arugula, and top halves of buns.

Not bad, but not that great either. I found the burgers to be a bit dry, probably due to the addition of the 90% lean meat. The cumin and garlic were also completely lost. The spread was so thick that it exacerbated the dryness of the burger. It's not like I didn't finish it or tossed the leftovers, but I won't make it again. Cooking Light's Greek Feta Burgers are not only a far better take on these flavors but are actually one of my all-time favorite burger recipes, bar none.
These were awesome. The patties are so flavorful. My husband I enjoyed the burgers with the sauce and arugula. My son ate his plain. Everyone was happy and I'll make these again for sure. I would definat ly make th se for a barbecue with company.
