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!
- 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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Toast your hamburger buns if desired.**
- 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.
