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~

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Tzatziki with feta:
  2. Seed and chop the cucumber. In a medium bowl, stir together the cucumber, yogurt, garlic, dill and feta. Refrigerate and chill for 1 hour.
  3. Grilled Eggplant:
  4. In a small bowl, combine vinegar, oregano, salt and pepper. Whisk in oil until thick and well blended. Cut the eggplant into 1/2-inch rounds. Arrange in a 13x9x2-inch baking dish; coat well with dressing. Grill eggplant until tender, about 3 minutes each side, keep warm.
  5. Lamb burger:
  6. In a large bowl blend together lamb, mint, cumin, salt and pepper, to taste. Form 6 patties.
  7. Before grilling burgers, brush the grill rack with oil. Place the patties on the rack turning once, 4 minutes each side.
  8. Cut pitas horizontally and lightly toast over indirect heat.
  9. Assemble burgers as follows: pita bottom, lettuce, burger topped generously with tzatziki, a slice of grilled eggplant, and the top of the pita.
