Description

An alternative to the lettuce-tomato-onion classic, this Greek-style burger incorporates the cooling flavor of yogurt to pair with ground lamb. Yum! 

Ingredients

1 pound
lamb, ground (or turkey)
1 cup
cheese, feta (crumbled)
1/3 cup
onion, red (chopped)
1 teaspoon
dill, fresh (chopped)
1/2 teaspoon
salt
1/4 teaspoon
black pepper
1 clove
garlic (minced)
   
Tzatziki (or greek yogurt)
1 cup
lettuce (chopped)
1  
tomato (sliced)
1/2  
cucumber (sliced)
4  
pita pockets

Instructions

In a bowl, mix together meat, feta, onion, dill, salt, pepper, and garlic until well combined. Shape into patties about ½ inch thick. Grill over medium heat for 8-10 minutes, turning over after 5 minutes. Cook to desired doneness, but the internal temperature should reach at least 160F.

Assemble sandwich in pita pockets with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, and tzatziki.
