Mediterranean Lamb Burger

What You'll Need!

1/4 lb ground lamb
1/2 tsp. Greek seasoning
2 tbsp. tomatoes (roasted)
1 thin slice onion (red)
1/2 tbsp. mint leaves
2 tbsp.

How to Make It:

1. Begin by forming your lamb patties. I always recommend making burgers using the smash method - which involves forming your burger into a sphere, touching it as little as possible to avoid over working, and then seasoning the exterior of the meat. You can either cook it on a cast iron skillet (which is what I did for this recipe) or you can cook it on the grill. Either way, get the heat source blazing hot, add your burger sphere, let it cook for a few minutes until the bottom becomes crispy and cooked about half way up the meat.

At this point, flip the burger gently, and then brown the other side for a minute or two. Next, you'll want to take a spatula and smush the burger. The grilled bits will help the burger stay together and will taste amazing. Continue cooking until the meat is cooked through and set aside to let it rest.

2. Toast your bun - do this either directly on the grill, in a toaster, or using a broiler. Once the bun is crispy and warm, smear half the tzatziki onto both halves. On the bottom half, add the lamb burger, then the roasted tomatoes, then the red onion, and the mint. Serve immediately.
