Mediterranean Feta Lamb Burgers

By , Published August 30, 2017, Updated July 31, 2018

These Mediterranean Feta Lamb Burgers are packed with flavor, not just from the ground and seasoned lamb, but from peppers, feta cheese, herbs and citrus zest. Lamb not your thing, substitute ground beef, it’s just as tasty!

Mediterranean Feta Lamb Burgers

I wanted a spiced up burger, and with the fresh ground lamb I recently had picked up, decided on a Mediterranean influenced mini burger – sans the bread. I purchased a pound and thought two small lamb burgers each would be filling with a side dish of taboulleh.

I had some flat leaf parsley on hand that had one more meal left it and chose the few pieces worthy of chopping, rinsed off some mint and basil and set them aside. I also had several beautiful red jalapeno peppers and with gloves on, proceeded to cut the stem off and remove the seeds. I kept the white membrane for a little more heat intact and coarse cut it into several pieces.

In my food processor they all went along with some fresh garlic cloves and a good 2 inch piece of lemon zest I used my vegetable peeler to strip off. A few pulses later and I added this to the ground lamb I had seasoned with kosher salt, cracked black pepper and dried oregano. I will be using plenty of salty feta cheese crumbles so kept my kosher salt to half a teaspoon.

In the mixing bowl I added the feta cheese crumbles and gently worked the ingredients together thoroughly. Don’t over mix it! I divided the lamb mixture into four portions and made these beautiful Mediterranean Feta Lamb Burgers. I prepped the grill to around 450°F and then cleaned and oiled it up.

Don’t want these to stick to the grill. Just a beautiful, nice char will do. After 3 minutes on the first side I flipped them and cooked for 5 minutes, then back over for 2 minutes more for medium, or grill to your liking. I removed them from the grill and allowed them to rest for 10 minutes.

Mediterranean Feta Lamb Burgers

These were so juicy and the warm feta cheese gave the perfect salty taste addition. The spiced heat from the red jalapeño was a great punch as was the lemon zest. The fresh mint, basil and parsley all came together with the fresh lamb for an incredible burger.

Easy to prepare and grill, these were perfect for a summertime dinner and could easily be made for any occasion. I went ahead and made some of my homemade to top these lamb burgers and the meal was complete with a little taboulleh, a bulgar wheat and herb salad. The cool tzatziki sauce is made from yogurt, lemon, cucumber and mint, which is the perfect foil to the spicy and flavorful burgers.

For readers who enjoy lamb, try my and my use ground lamb. The , , , and all use lamb loin meat.

If you want some lamb with an Indian influence, try my . Enjoy!

Mediterranean Feta Lamb Burgers

Hi Kevin, These look great. Thinking of adding them to our camping meal rotation. Do you think they could be made ahead of time and frozen until we’re ready to pop them on the grill?

Thanks so much Barb. Yes, I see no reason why not. Have fun camping!

Hi Kevin, just happened to stumble across one of your recipes.

I made your Mediterranean Lamb Burger; it was one of the best burgers I have ever had!

Now I am looking at all your recipes and want to try out your oven Fried Chicken.

Mediterranean Feta Lamb Burgers

Now I love to read comments like this! Thanks so much for taking the time to let me know Lauren!

This is a super unique burger recipe, it sounds delicious. Another good excuse to fire up the grill before summer is over!

The flavors are outstanding and who could resist a loaded burger. So good! Thanks Kevin. ????

I’m absolutely drooling over these burgers, Kevin. You know how I love lamb! Awesome video too – love that little fire kiss right in the beginning.

Thanks so much Marissa, love these with a little char on them!

Mediterranean Feta Lamb Burgers

BTW, was reading you Paris guide for tips. We are planning on going again in April with a friend who has never been then over to London. Thanks again! ????

Hey Kevin! These lamb and feta sliders have my mouth “crying”! I can’t get ground lamb very often, but I can get leg of lamb which I can grind into mince. I did find some really nice lamb loin chops at the store yesterday ???? I am a huge fan of feta; a friend just brought us a locally grown watermelon so I’m making a watermelon and feta salad which should be pretty tasty with the lamb chops.

I haven’t had a leg of lamb in so long and my grill is “crying” for that one too! I do have plenty of delish lamb loin chop recipes here so hopefully one will make it to your table one day Dorothy! ????

BTW, I love watermelon and feta salads, too – wish we were neighbors!

Hey Kevin! We could have SO much fun cooking and baking! Gary and Dave would be so well fed and happy! ????

Mediterranean Feta Lamb Burgers

Years ago one of my girls had an international day at school.

The parents each made a dish or two and served the children.

I of course made Shepherd’s Pie .

Several other parents had made cottage pie.

I was the only one who dish was “licked” clean and the children were asking for more.

Mediterranean Feta Lamb Burgers

Gotta love that! Thanks Charlie!

These burgers look so good. I am definitely keeping the recipe.

I’ll have to change a couple of things due to allergies, but I know they will be fantastic.

I noticed Jessielou’s comment.

You cannot get a better Shepherd’s pie than one made with lamb.

Mediterranean Feta Lamb Burgers

I’ll have that over cottage pie any day.

Definitely let me know what you think of these Charlie. Not quite sure where you live, but in the States ground beef has always been the go to and lamb not so. I LOVE lamb so here on the site I try to show it in various forms and flavors. Thanks!

Hi! I only scrolled through to get to the recipe, but I noticed your comment on shepherds pie…. yes we say shepherds pie for lamb, beef mince is cottage pie!

Thanks for the correct recipe naming there Jessielou, appreciate it. Where are you are you reading from, love to get the international perspective on things? ????

Whether in the kitchen or on the grill, you’ll find tasty comfort food meals inspired by an international pantry. I’m passionate about making delicious meals that are sometimes health conscious and sometimes indulgent—because life’s too short to be bland!
