BBQ Lamb Burgers with Yogurt Sauce

While cruising the grocery aisle after work one day, my eye caught a sale on ground grassfed lamb. I am a huge fan of lamb (as long as I don't think too hard about it) and it is such a great protein to add to your rotation of recipes. The cool thing about this dish is many of the ingredients are used twice: in the burgers AND in the sauce. I made a double batch and came up with 7 huge burgers. The barbecued burgers and cool yogurt sauce were a big hit on a warm night.


What you need:
1 lb ground lamb
Chopped red onion
Minced garlic
1 egg
Dry dill
Dry mint
Onion soup mix
Worcestshire sauce
Greek Yogurt

Mix together the lamb, about 1/4 cup chopped onion, a few cloves of minced garlic, a handful of breadcrumbs, the egg, about a tablespoon of the dill, teaspoon of the mint and half the package of onion soup mix. Form the mixture into patties. Grill to desired doneness (I seared mine on each side on the bottom rack, then transferred to the top for about another 15 minutes while I cooked some veggies).

 Yogurt sauce: Mix together about a cup of Greek yogurt, some chopped red onion and fresh garlic, the same dill and mint you used for the burgers plus a little extra, salt and pepper.

To assemble burgers, throw your favorite buns on the grill to toast, spread the yogurt sauce on both sides, top with thinly sliced cucumber, red onion and a lamb burger. Enjoy!
