Serves 6 (serving size: 1 filled pita half)

Folding feta into the lamb mixture adds a salty tang to the patties in these Lamb and Red Pepper Pita Sandwiches.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place first 10 ingredients in a food processor; process until smooth. Place breadcrumb mixture in a bowl; add lamb, beef, and feta, stirring gently to combine. Shape mixture into 12 (2-ounce) patties. Refrigerate 10 minutes to set.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 6 patties to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from pan; repeat procedure with remaining patties.

Step 3

Place 1 lettuce leaf, about 4 cucumber slices, and 2 lamb patties in each pita half.

They didn't have ground lamb at TJs so I used ground beef. I also made a yogurt sauce from another recipe and it was really good.
