Serves 4 (serving size: 1 burger)

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.

How to Make It

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Just okay

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.  

So Good!

This is about as good as a lamb burger can get.  Flavorful and easy, and doesn't need anything else in the way of condiments.  Definitely will be making again!
