Its Greek to Me

If your passionate about the Mediterranean this is the burger for you. This burger is a blend of the freshest ingredients. Imagine lamb and mint smothered in blended yogurt sauce. Easy to prepare for special guests.

Ingredients 

Sauce ingredients:
1 c. yogurt
3 green onions (scallions)
3 cloves of garlic
½ c. parsley
½ c. mint
1 tsp Cavenders All Purpose Greek Seasoning
½ tsp. fresh ground pepper
½ tsp sea salt
Burger ingredients:
2 lbs of ground lamb
4 cloves of minced garlic
4 chopped green onions (scallions)
½ c. chopped parsley
½ c. chopped mint
¾ c. crumbled feta cheese
¾ tsp. fresh ground black pepper
¾ tsp. sea salt
Other Ingredients
Red onions sliced thin
English cucumbers sliced thin
Tomatoes sliced thin
Baby spinach leaves clean and remove stems
6 Pita breads

Instructions 

Directions
Combine all sauce ingredients into food processor and pulse until smooth and creamy. Place in bowl, cover and chill. Can be made the day before.

In a large mixing bowl combine the ground meat with other burger ingredients. I prefer to mix gently with my hands. Divide the mixture into six portions. Make patties approximately ¾” thick. Place on a platter and dust with salt and pepper. Cover and chill.

Preheat gas grill to medium-high, grill burgers for 4 minutes on each side for medium cooked burger.

To assemble burgers:
Place Greek burger inside of the halved pita, stuff pita with red onions, cucumber slices, tomatoes, and spinach. Pour sauce generously inside and enjoy.
