Ingredients
  • For Feta Dressing:
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 ounces good quality feta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 small clove garlic, grated
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • For Burger Patties:
  • 1 1/2 pounds good quality ground lamb
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried mint
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • For Assembly:
  • 4 slices mozzarella cheese
  • 4 good quality kaiser rolls or hamburger buns, split
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Sliced tomato
  • Sliced red onion
  • Mild banana pepper rings
  • English cucumber slices
Directions
For Burger Patties:
  • 3/4 teaspoon smoked sea salt (large crystals - if using fine salt cut this amount in 1/2)

For Assembly:
  • Add all ingredients for dressing to the bowl of a small food processor and pulse to combine. Remove to bowl and set aside to allow the flavors to blend.

  • Mix all the ingredients for burger patties (do not overwork). Divide the meat into 4 equal patties that are a little larger in diameter than the size of your bun, so that when they shrink after cooking they will fit the buns perfectly.

  • Heat a grill pan, cast iron skillet, or outdoor grill to medium heat. Once the grill is hot, cook burgers about 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until desired doneness is reached. Do not overcook or the burgers will be dry.

  • Top each burger with mozzarella cheese during the last 2 to 3 minutes of cooking.

  • Lightly toast the cut sides of your buns either on the grill or under the oven broiler.

  • Spread some of the feta dressing on the bottom half of each bun, top with a burger patty, romaine lettuce, sliced tomato, red onion, banana pepper rings, and sliced cucumber. Spread some feta dressing on the top halves of the buns and cover the burgers.

  • Grab lots of napkins! If you've done it right you'll need them! Enjoy - and maybe even go back for seconds! (Yes - it's that good!)
