Original publication date December 15, 2022


1 cup plain Greek yogurt

1/2 cup shredded peeled cucumber

1-1/4 teaspoons salt, divided

1 pound G.A.P. Animal Welfare Certified ground lamb

1 tablespoon grated lemon zest

4 garlic cloves, minced and divided

2 teaspoons dried oregano

1/4 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon pepper, divided

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon dill weed

10 mini buns or mini ciabatta buns

10 Bibb lettuce or Boston lettuce leaves

1 medium red onion, thinly sliced

1 cup crumbled feta cheese


  • In a large bowl, combine ground lamb, lemon zest, 2 garlic cloves, oregano, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into ten 1/2-in.-thick patties. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
  • For sauce, strain yogurt with cheesecloth (if time) and discard strained liquid. Sprinkle cucumbers with salt and add to the yogurt along with lemon juice, dill, remaining 2 garlic cloves, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Stir until combined. (Note: if you have a favorite store-bought tzatziki sauce, save time and use that instead.)
  • Grill burgers over medium heat 3-4 minutes on each side or until your meat thermometer reads 160° F. Toast buns on the grill (if time) and serve burgers on buns with lettuce, red onion, feta and sauce.
