My wife's personal barbecue favorite, my famous burgers with a greek twist.

Burger:
1 lb ground lamb
1 small red onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp ground thyme
2 tbsp ground marjoram
1 tbsp fresh rosemary
1 tbsp salt and pepper
1 egg

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl, mix thoroughly, refrigerate for atleast 1 hour to let flavors incorporate.

Tzatziki sauce:
8 oz plan greek yogurt
1 medium cucumber, peeled and deseeded
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp fresh mint, chopped fine
juice from 1 lemon

Chop the cucumber into 1 inch pieces, place the yogurt,garlic and cucumber in a foodproccesor and process until smooth and creamy. Add the juice and mint, incorporate thoroughly, refrigerate for atleast 1 hour.


Grill your burgers to your desired doneness, toast some hamburger rolls, slather the rolls with the sauce, add lettuce, tomato, and red onion. I personall enjoy a more leafy green, like mesculun, but your taste buds know best!

Enjoy!

This sounds fantastic! I love Gyros.

This is definitely going on my list of things I gotta try. Thank you so much.

Gyros are amazing. They remind of overpriced fair/carnival food, and for some reason that brings back nice nostalgic feelings.

Ohhh, works just as well in a cast-iron skillet. Or even a normal saute pan, just add a touch of vegetable oil and get your pan nice and hot. No excuses for not enjoying a gyro burger!
