I made these the other night and they were fabulous. You could also make these as mini burgers/slammers to serve as an appetizer. unfortunately, I walked away from the grill and over cooked the meat, but the burgers were still great. Be careful not to do that. You want a juicy burger. Remember that the meat will continue to cook after taken off of the grill. Also, never smash the burger down with the spatula while cooking. Let your meat rest for 5 minutes or so… This recipe is a great one for that backyard party or get together…

Greek Burgers
2 pounds ground lamb or beef
4 cloves garlic, crushed to a paste
½ red onion, diced fine
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
6 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (additional feta for top of burgers, optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
6 Ciabatta Rolls, or your favorite bun or roll
Butter (enough to spread on rolls)
Sliced cucumbers and shredded romaine lettuce

¾ cup nonfat Greek yogurt
½ cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
½ cup cucumber, diced
Salt and pepper to taste
4 cloves garlic, crushed to a paste
1 sprig fresh mint
1 tablespoon fresh parsley

Combine meat, garlic, onion, Italian seasoning, feta and salt and pepper in a large bowl. Form into 6 large thick patties. Grill the patties over medium high heat for about 8 minutes per side, or until meat is cooked to desired temperature. Meanwhile make the sauce by combining all of the ingredients and refrigerate until meat is done. Spread butter on inside of rolls and grill or toast. Serve burgers with sauce, sliced cucumber, shredded romaine and additional feta (optional).
