- 450 g (1 lb.) ground lamb or turkey
- 125 g (4 oz.) feta cheese
- 1 tsp. oregano or thyme
- 125 ml (1/2 cup) kalamata olives, pitted and chopped (optional)
- 1 tsp. grated lemon zest
- 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
- 1 egg
- salt and pepper to taste

- 8 Tbsp. tzatziki
- 8 thin cucumber slices
- 4 tomato slices
- lettuce

- 4 burger buns or 4 pita bread
- olive oil
- 1 clove of garlic (optional)
  1. Preheat the barbecue to medium
  2. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients for the burgers. Divide into 4 equal portions and form into patties.
  3. Grill on the barbecue for 5-7 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature is 170° C (77° C).


  1. Meanwhile, oil the burger buns and rub with a halved clove of garlic. Grill them for 1 minute before the burgers are finished. If using pita bread, halve them and warm them on a dry grill (without oil or garlic).
