Lamb Pita Burger with Greek Yogurt Tzatziki Sauce (Think Healthy Gyro)

Lamb Burgers with Tzatziki Yogurt Sauce 

What's for dinner? Lamb burgers! This lamb recipe was super easy and quick. I think I had the recipe in my binder for YEARS but never made them because I wasn't sure if I would like them. Plus, let's be honest, I thought it was hard to cook lamb because it sounds all fancy and stuff. Haha. My photo doesn't do it justice.  They are SOOOO GOOD! I used my George Foreman grill to make it easy, but you can grill them outside as well. 

Patties:

1 package ground lamb
1/4 small onion, grated
1/2 small zucchini, grated
1 clove garlic, grated
1/2 tsp salt
fresh pepper
1 tsp oregano


Combine all ingredients and shape into 4 even patties. Cook on grill until inside temp reaches at least 160-180* (I accidentally cooked mine to 180)

Sauce:

1 small container Greek yogurt
1/2 cucumber diced, seeds removed
pinch of stevia or sugar, optional if you like your sauce sweet
pinch salt
fresh pepper
dash of oregano
Add ingredients to small bowl; Stir to combine.

Cut pita bread in half and warm in oven or toaster oven. Cut patti
e in half and place one half in each pita. DELISH!
