  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped soft sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped green pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 hamburger buns, split
  • Lettuce leaves, tomato slices and cucumber slices


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first 11 ingredients, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four 1/2-in.-thick patties.
  2. Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat until a thermometer reads 160°, 4-5 minutes on each side. Combine butter and garlic powder; spread over cut side of buns. Grill buns over medium heat, cut side down, until toasted, 30-60 seconds. Serve burgers on buns with lettuce leaves, tomato slices, sliced cucumber and additional feta.
