Recipe Snapshot


30 min




Preheat the grill to high heat, if cooking burgers on the grill. If you are planning on using a skillet, skip this step.

Gently knead lamb, garlic, mixed fresh herbs, rosemary, salt and pepper in a large bowl.

Form the seasoned ground lamb into burger patties. Transfer them to a large plate.

If you are cooking the burgers in a skillet, heat a large cast-iron skillet over high heat. Add the burgers to grill or skillet, and cook until browned on the bottom. Flip and continue cooking until the lamb burgers reach an internal temperature of 135 degrees F for medium or 145 for medium well when tested with an instant-read thermometer.

Let burgers rest. Meanwhile, make the whipped feta. Puree the feta, yogurt and lemon juice and zest in a mini prep food processor or mash by hand with a fork until smooth. Scrape down the sides.

Spread the homemade yogurt sauce over the buns. Top with burgers. Add optional toppings if desired.
