Easy Lamb Burgers (Broiled in Oven) with Feta and Tzatziki Slaw

  • Author: Katelyn

  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


Super simple lamb burgers warmly spiced and broiled in your oven for only 6 minutes per side! These sizzling hot lamb patties are loaded with briny feta cheese crumbles, slathered with tangy Dijon mustard, and topped with a cool and crunchy tzatziki slaw. These flavors are completely irresistible!



Tzatziki Slaw

  • 3 cups store bought tri-colored coleslaw
  • 1 cup store bought tzatziki (I prefer Cedar’s brand – cucumber, garlic, and dill, but any tzatziki is fine!) 
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped mint
  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice from 1/2 of a lemon
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon honey 


  • 1 pound ground lamb*
  • 4 hamburger buns (I use brioche buns with sesame seeds)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • Extra virgin olive oil


  • Crumbled feta cheese
  • Dijon mustard
  • Sliced tomato


  1. Prepare the tzatziki slaw by combining ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Cover the bowl and place it in the refrigerator to chill until it is time to assemble the burgers. 
  2. Divide your ground lamb into four equal parts. Use each part to form 4 individual burger patties, making a thumb print right in the center of each patty. There should be a slight indentation.
  3. Use 1 total teaspoon of garam masala and 1 total teaspoon of kosher salt to season the four burgers. Sprinkle one side of the burgers with 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon of garam masala then flip them all over and season the other side with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of garam masala and 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt. Brush both sides with a little olive oil. 
  4. Toast your hamburger buns if desired.**
  5. Assemble your burgers and toppings however you like. This is how I make mine (from bottom to top)–> I like to layer the Dijon mustard on the bottom bun and cover that with crumbled feta cheese. Next, add your cooked burger patty, then a nice slice of tomato, and finally, spoon on the tzatziki slaw before adding your top bun. Then Enjoy this delicious creation you just made!


*You can substitute ground beef in this recipe if you prefer. I also love to double the recipe and use 1 pound each of ground lamb and 80/20 ground beef!

**I toast the hamburger buns in my toaster, but you can add some softened butter and toast them cut side down on a skillet or grill pan as well.
