Greek Lamb Burgers

          One of my resolutions for 2014 is to cook more (and to cook more from scratch) so I started the new year with one of my favorite recipes: Greek Lamb Burgers. The dish is super easy to make and has amazing authentic Greek and Middle Eastern flavor.


1 lb ground lamb
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1 tablespoon dill
Salt and pepper to taste

Greek Yogurt Dressing:
 One single serving lowfat Greek yogurt (I use Chobani or Total)
Juice of one lemon
Salt and pepper to taste

Cucumber slices
Crumbled Feta cheese


1. Combine lamb and seasonings in a large bowl and form into two large patties
2. Heat a frying pan with cooking spray or olive oil over medium high heat
3. Cook burgers 6-8 minutes, turning frequently
4. Top with yogurt dressing, cucumber slices, and feta cheese
5. Toss remaining cucumber with feta, olive oil, salt and pepper as a side dish
