What are the ingredients I need?

Ingredients image for Greek Lamb Burgers

Greek yogurt – I used the Farmers Union one here in Australia. Use a full fat or low fat one. Just keep in mind low fat will be a little runnier.

Salt – I used fine salt.

Parsley – I used continental parsley.

Olive oil – make sure you use a really good quality extra virgin olive oil. It has the strongest flavour.

Tomato – I used truss tomatoes.

Red onion – white will work too, but red has a sweeter flavour.

Cucumber – I used English or continental cucumber.

Beef mince – I would advise using a regular non low fat beef mince.

Lamb mince – same with the lamb mince.

Pepper – I used freshly ground.

Cumin – I used ground cumin powder.

Oregano – I used dried oregano.

Garlic – I would recommend using freshly minced garlic.

Mint – fresh mint, finely chopped has the best flavor!

Feta cheese – this adds loads of flavor!

Egg – I used a large egg.

Breadcrumbs – you can use regular breadcrumbs but I used Panko breadcrumbs.

Burger buns – you could use brioche burger buns, but I would recommend using nice crispy burger buns.

Dijon mayonnaise – adds so much flavour!

Rocket – Also known as arugula, ads a peppery flavor.

Let’s go through each step.

Garlic yogurt sauce

You can make this a day ahead of time! In fact, if you make it a day ahead of time, the flavour intensifies and it’s even yummier!

Hamburger Patties Temperature
