These sliders are made of lamb–a great source of protein and iron–and are topped with an equally Greek-inspired tzatziki sauce. You get two recipes for the price of one today!
As always, if you make this or anything else please email me or hit me up on the interwebs so I know how much you liked it. Our Facebook friends can also post their own pictures and I guarantee your photography is probably better than mine…
Lamb Sliders with Tzatziki
–1 lb. ground lamb
–small onion, minced
–salt and pepper
–1 cup mixed greens
–12 wheat slider buns
–2 cups greek yogurt
–1 small cucumber, diced
–1/4 cup of shredded mint leaves, stems removed
–1 tsp olive oil
–2 tsp lemon juice
–pinch of salt
Place the ground lamb, garlic, onion, and egg in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper and then use hands to mix. It will feel super gross but trust me, mixing this up with your hands is better than using a spoon.
Form the ground lamb mixture into 12 equally sized patties. Fire up the grill and cook the sliders for 3-4 minutes on each side or until cooked to desired doneness. Hey, who am I to judge how rare or well done you like your meat? I do, however, highly recommend that you toast your buns…
In a separate mixing bowl combine the tzatziki ingredients.
Place each slider on a toasted bun. Top each burger with some mixed greens and a dollop of tzatziki sauce. Happy grilling!
