      This was a delightful change of pace from the ordinary burger. I especially loved the grilled eggplant and the tzatziki with feta topping. Yum! ~Made for ZWT6 Zee Zany Zesty Cookz~

      Delicious! I shaped my hamburger mixture differently - into a a basic kebap shape (long cigar shape) and made souvlaki as per the usual manner. Laid the pita out flat, put in a couple of pieces of the grilled eggplant, a lamb kebap (or burger ;-) ) and dolloped with the feta/tzatziki mixture before folding closed. I think this makes for 'cleaner' eating, not allowing stuff to drip out, if you fold and wrap the pita properly as per souvlaki. We all really enjoyed the addition of feta to the tzatziki and thought this was a tasty lunch. Thanks.

      We thoroughly enjoyed these not in pita bread - but that sounds like a delicious option I'll certainly go with another time - but with two of I'mPat's yummy recipes: her Roasted Potatoes With Sage and Lemon 255923 and her Simple Cabbage and Mushroom Side 207084. My dinner guests loved all three elements us in this recipe: the burgers, the tzakiki and the eggplant. And four of us knocked these off without difficulty: enough said! I particularly loved the cumin in the burgers and the selection of herbs in the tzatziki and grilled eggplant. Thank you for another wonderful recipe, MarraMamba, that I look forward to making again! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.
