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!

I liked the burger and I liked the tzatziki ( I love the stuff!) but it was missing something in the translation. I didn't rate in order to be fair, since we didn't use eggplant (DH is allergic) so maybe that's it. I suspect these are just not our thing. Made for the Daffy Daffodils for ZWT4. Thanks for sharing.
I loved these burgers, sadly, my DH did not. He wanted to put ketchup on them! And he never uses ketchup (of course I didn't let him). He's also never been a big fan of feta cheese, either, so I thought this was the recipe to turn him around. Enough about his experience. This had incredible flavors from the dill, mint, feta, cumin, eggplant, and cucumber. I used iceberg lettuce, a ploy to get DH on board! And I made my own pita bread. It might make more sense to arrange the ingredients in the order they're used -- just an idea! Thanks, MarraMamba! Made for Newest Zaar Tag '08.
