Lamb, mint & tzatziki are all classic flavor pairings- the trio works beautifully together! Some of the most popular dishes that feature this combo are lamb gyros with tzatziki, lamb chops with mint chimichurri, lamb loin marinated with mint & rosemary, among others! Lamb & mint are especially common this time of year as they are the quintessential spring ingredients, regularly found at Easter dinners & spring meals! In this greek lamb burger recipe, we’ve combined the trinity of flavors to create a tasty & elevated burger that ANYONE can replicate in their kitchen.
Cooking should be easy & fun! This is a great way to experiment with new ingredients & create rich flavors without the fuss! It’s also a cost effective way to enjoy spring’s bounty of lamb as ground lamb is typically much more reasonable than lamb chops or loins. If ground lamb is not readily available in your grocery store, you can easily substitute ground beef, turkey or chicken. Personally, I love the unique flavor of lamb and it’s not something I eat all the time. It’s nice to switch up ingredients and treat yourself from time to time!
I’m excited for spring & soon to be summer (here in NC it comes quickly!) for our menu to transition to more grill-worthy items, especially burgers like this buffalo chicken burger or salmon slider!
