Greek-Style Lamb Burgers with Creamy Tzatziki Sauce

Enjoy a Greek-style lamb burger! This rich, gamey burger is packed with classic Greek herbs and spices — such as cinnamon, coriander, mint, and oregano — which creates a fresh boost of flavor not often found in burger patties. The whole thing is topped with tzatzizki and fresh veggies. Tzatziki is a classic Greek condiment that’s often served alongside grilled meats or kebabs, or as part of a mezze platter as a dip for veggies or pita. It’s a simple mix of thick strained yogurt, cucumbers, lemon juice or vinegar, garlic, olive oil, and fresh herbs such as dill and mint. What’s not to love?

The creamy, rich, and tangy sauce helps round out the hearty lamb in this dish —but you’ll love it for more than just burgers. Tzatziki pairs well with almost any summer dish, be it a simple salad, grilled fish, spiced chicken, or even a turkey sandwich.


For the tzatziki and burgers:

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup grated English cucumber
  • 1 clove garlic, grated

  • 3/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
