Looking for a different burger – try this Greek Lamb Burger

Here is a delicious and simple recipe from Martha Stewart for lamb burgers.  If you are not a fan of spicy food, you may want to cut back a little on the curry – we loved it!  I put it over mixed greens and skipped the bread for myself and my family tucked them in pita bread.

Lamb Burgers with Feta Sauce and Cucumbers

By using lamb instead of beef, and feta cheese instead of American, we’ve given these burgers an international makeover, creating a Greek recipe that can’t miss.

Serving Size  : 4    
                        * 1 1/2 pounds ground lamb
                        * 2 teaspoons curry powder
                        * 3 scallions, thinly sliced
                        * coarse salt and ground pepper
                        * 1 tablespoon olive oil
                        * 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
                        * 2 tablespoons plain yogurt
                        * 8 slices country bread (each 1/2
                        — inch thick), toasted, if desired
                        * 1 Kirby cucumber, cut lengthwise
                        — into ribbons with a vegetable peeler

1. In a medium bowl, combine lamb, curry powder, and 2 sliced scallions;
season generously with salt and pepper. Mix gently with a fork (do not
overmix); form into 4 oval patties to fit on bread (each 1 inch thick).

2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Season patties with salt
and pepper. Cook until browned and just cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes per
side (reduce heat if browning too quickly).

3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix feta, yogurt, and remaining scallion,
mashing cheese gently to combine; season with salt and pepper.

4. Spread 4 slices of bread with feta mixture; top with cucumbers, lamb
patties, and remaining bread.
