greek lamb-feta burgers with cucumber sauce

greek lamb-feta burgers with cucumber sauce
  • 4 large unpeeled garlic cloves
  • 1 1/4 pounds ground lamb
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 large cucumber, peeled, grated and squeezed very dry in a clean towel
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh mint leaves
  • 1 teaspoon red or rice wine vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 large, thin red onion slices
  • 4 large, thin tomato slices
  • 4 small (4 inch) pita breads



  1. Set 4 whole garlic cloves in a small skillet over medium-high heat; toast until spotty brown, about 5 minutes. Peel, mince and set aside.
  2. Break up lamb in a medium bowl. Sprinkle roasted garlic, feta, oregano, salt and pepper over meat; stir with a fork to combine. Divide into 4 portions. Toss meat back and forth between cupped hands to form a ball. Pat with fingertips to flatten to about 4 inches wide. Refrigerate.
  3. Mix cucumber, sour cream, mint, vinegar, 1 minced clove of garlic, and salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl. Refrigerate sauce until ready to serve.
  4. Build a hot fire on one side of grill. Replace rack. When coals are covered with white ash, add burgers. Cover and cook, turning only once, until done, about 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium to medium-well burgers.
  5. Grill pitas until spotty brown and warm, a minute or so per side. Split crosswise. Spread a couple of tablespoons of sauce over 4 pita halves. Top each with an onion slice, a tomato slice and a burger. Spread a portion of the remaining sauce over each burger. Top with remaining pita halves.
