Ingredients

For the Lamb Burgers:

1 1/2 lbs Ground American lamb (patties will be roughly 5 ½ ounces each, so 4 patties require just under 1 ½ lbs ground lamb)

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

4 burger buns

Herbed Yogurt Sauce (tzatziki):

1 cup Greek yogurt

3 tbsp Fresh dill finely chopped

2 tbsp Fresh mint finely chopped

1 tsp Lemon zest

1/2 tbsp Fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup Cucumber minced

1 cloves Garlic minced

1 tsp Kosher salt

1/4 tsp Freshly ground black pepper

Topping Suggestions:

Pickled red onions

Arugula or mixed greens

Kalamata olives

Feta cheese

Thinly sliced cucumbers

Nonstick spray or oil for cooking

Directions

To make lamb burgers:

1Divide ground lamb equally into 4 portions weighing roughly 5 ½ ounces each. To make slider-sized patties, weigh each to 3 ½ ounces each. Flatten into uniform rounds, then use your thumb or finger to make a small indentation right on top in the center of each patty (see note below).

230 minutes prior to cooking, sprinkle each patty generously with kosher salt (about ½ tsp per burger) and freshly ground black pepper (about ¼ tsp each) on both sides.

To make herbed yogurt sauce:

1Combine all sauce ingredients in a large bowl, then whisk to combine. Refrigerate until needed.

To cook lamb burgers:

1Preheat a grill, cast iron skillet, or griddle over medium-high heat. Coat with nonstick oil spray (if grilling) or a couple tablespoons olive oil (if cooking indoors). Cook each burger patty for 5 minutes per side, or until an internal temperature of 150 F is reached (for medium). Allow burgers to rest 2-3 minutes before serving on buns with herbed yogurt sauce and additional toppings.
