Lamb Burgers with Tzatziki Sauce
The perfect way to try lamb for the first time or to serve it up to friends who might think they don't love it.


  • (1 to 1.5 lbs) Ground Lamb
  • (to taste) Sea salt
  • (to taste) Black pepper
  • (1 cup) Greek yogurt
  • (3 Tbsp) Dill, fresh and finely chopped
  • (2 Tbsp) Mint, fresh and finely chopped
  • (1 tsp) Lemon zest
  • (1-2 Tbsp) Lemon juice
  • (1/4 cup) Cucumber, peeled, seeds removed, minced
  • (1) Garlic clove, minced
  • (1 tsp) Sea salt
  • (1/4 tsp) Black pepper


Burger Directions

  1. Divide 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.
  2. Season each patty generously with salt (about ½ tsp per burger) and freshly ground black pepper (about ¼ tsp each) on both sides.

Tzatziki Directions

  1. Combine all sauce ingredients (everything except the ground lamb) in a large bowl, then whisk to combine. Refrigerate until needed.

    Cooking Directions

    1. Preheat a grill, cast iron skillet, or griddle over medium-high heat. Coat with nonstick oil spray (if grilling) or a couple tablespoons tallow or grapeseed oil (if cooking indoors). 
    2. Cook each burger patty for 5 minutes per side, or until your ideal temperature is reached. 
    3. Allow burgers to rest 2-3 minutes before serving on buns with herbed yogurt sauce and additional topping like pickled onions!

    *If you are unsure about ground lamb's stronger flavor, try mixing half ground pork and ground lamb or half ground beef and ground lamb.
