Try this Lamb Burger recipe as a Middle Eastern twist on a basic burger. Made with juicy, spiced lamb patties, homemade tzatziki, creamy hummus and aromatic za'atar spice, these easy burgers are not only unique but also really delicious!
Heat one teaspoon olive oil in a large non-stick skillet. Sauté onion and garlic on medium-low heat for about 5 minutes or until soft. Remove from the heat and cool slightly.
Transfer onion and garlic to a large mixing bowl. Add ground lamb, parsley, mint, cumin, mustard and egg, and season with salt to taste.
Using your hands combine the ingredients and form 6 2.5/3-inch (about 7 cm) patties
Heat 1/2 tbsp olive oil on high heat in the same skillet. Brown patties, about 1 minute on each side then reduce to medium-low and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side or until cooked through. You want to cook them gently, so they are browned on the outside and cooked all the way through inside.
Transfer cooked patties to a plate lined with paper towel to drain excess fat.
While patties are cooking, prepare tzatziki. In a medium bowl, combine yogurt, cucumber cubes, mint, lemon and salt. Stir well and set aside.
