For a different take on the basic burger, give these juicy Lamb Burgers a try. A great meal served with corn-on-the-cob and a tossed green salad...yum!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut each pita bread in half, crosswise, to form a pocket. Wrap pitas in foil and warm in a 300 degree oven while preparing burgers.
  2. Make sauce by combining yogurt, cucumber, and lemon juice to serve as a sauce.
  3. Thoroughly combine remaining ingredients by gently kneading with your fingers. Shape into 8 1/2-inch thick, oval patties to accommodate the pita halves. Barbecue or broil, leaving them a little pink in the middle keeps the burgers from tasting dry.
  4. Let your diners fill each pita half with a burger and choices of sliced pickles, tomatoes, and red onion,then a dollop of sauce.

Quick and tasty lamb dinner. Lamb isn't our favorite but we all enjoyed this recipe. The Tzatziki sauce is easy and quick. Made for ZWT9.

These were a hit. The sauce is great. I added a little chopped mint into the burgers along with the parsley and would add even more next time. I also skipped the pickles and added some crumbled goat cheese to the condiments group. Will be making these again! Made for ZWT 9.
