Greek Lamb Burgers

Makes 4 Servings


¼ cup pine nuts

1 lb lean ground lamb

¼ cup finely chopped yellow onion

3 cloves garlic, minced, divided

¾ tsp salt

¼ tsp black pepper

¼ cup plain yogurt

4 slices red onion (1/4 inch thick)

1 Tb olive oil

12 thin cucumber slices

4 tomato slices


  1.  Prepare grill for direct cooking.  Meanwhile, heat small skillet over medium heat until hot.  Add pine nuts; cook 30 to 45 seconds until light brown, shaking pan occasionally.
  2. Combine lamb, pine nuts, yellow onion, 2 cloves garlic, salt and pepper in large bowl; mix well.  Shape mixture into 4 patties, about ½ inch thick and 4 inches in diameter.  Combine yogurt, sugar and remaining 1 clove garlic in small bowl; set aside.
  3. Brush 1 side of each patty and red onion slice with oil; place on grid, oiled sides down.  Brush tops with oil.  Grill, on covered grill, over medium-hot coals 8 to 10 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees, turning halfway through grilling time.
  4. Top 4 bread slices with patties and red onion slices; top each with 3 cucumber slices and 1 tomato slice dollop evenly with yogurt mixture.  Tap sandwiches with remaining 4 bread slices.  Serve immediately.
