Main Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 2 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

Salad ingredients

  • 1/4 red onion (thinly sliced)
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic glaze
  • 2 tablespoons chopped kalamata olives

Toppings

  • 2 pita bread rounds (handful of salad)

Cooking Instructions

Step 1

Heat grill to medium (375º-425º) and carefully oil the grate. 

Step 2

In a bowl, add lamb, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper. Gently combine, being careful not to over mix.

Step 3

Divide and shape into four equal-size patties. Using your thumb, create a dent in the center of each patty, which allows for more even cooking. 

Step 4

Grill 3-4 minutes each side, or until the internal temperature reaches 160º. During the last 2 minutes, add pitas to the grill and cook for 1 minute on each side. Remove and set aside. Remove burgers from grill, tent with aluminum foil and let rest for 5 minutes. 

Step 5

In a small bowl, combine salad ingredients and lightly toss. To assemble, add a small handful of salad to the pita, then add the burger. 

All recipe ingredients should be cooked to a safe internal temperature according to USDA guidelines. After preparing a recipe, please store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
