Spicy Lamb Burgers with toppings

Spicy Lamb Burgers

Alison Needham
These juicy lamb burgers are a fun fresh take on regular burgers, with a kick from ground chiles, smoked paprika and ground cumin. Drizzled with yogurt sauce, and topped with more fresh herbs, these are a unique twist on an American classic. Serve them at your next cook out with an icy cold (gluten free) beer.

  • Grill


For the Cucumber Sauce


  • Heat a grill over medium-hot flames.
  • Place lamb, shallot, herbs, spices, salt and pepper and feta cheese in a large mixing bowl. Mix together with your hands (or a fork) until evenly incorporated. Shape into four patties. Set aside.
  • Mix ingredients for yogurt sauce and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Oil the grill and cook burgers for 5-7 minutes a side, or until done to your likeness.
  • Serve immediately, drizzled with yogurt sauce and topped with additional fresh herbs like mint, thyme, or cilantro...and maybe a handful of baby spinach too.
