Gyro Burgers with Tzatziki

Gyro Burger

Lamb burgers topped with Tzatziki and served in a warm, grilled pita.  Served with a side of semi-homemade Rosemary Sweet Potato fries.  Sounds yummy, huh?  It was.  Definitely one of my favorite dinners in a while.  And easy too.  The Tzatziki is best made ahead of time or even the night before but it's still really good even when you can't.  

Tzatziki Sauce
1 (17 oz) container plain greek yogurt (such as Fage 0%)
1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
1 lemon
3-4 cloves mined garlic
4 oz Feta cheese, crumbled
salt and pepper

Place diced cucumber in a clean tea towel or paper towels and gently squeeze out excess liquid.  In a medium bowl, mix yogurt and juice of the lemon.  Add in garlic and feta.  Fold in cucumbers.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Lamb Burgers
1 lb. ground lamb
2 tsp Mediterranean Herb Seasoning (McCormick's)
1 egg, beaten
4-5 tbsp panko bread crumbs
salt and pepper

Preheat grill to medium.  Mix ingredients well without overworking the meat.  Divide into four burger patties.  Grill to medium well, about 8-10 minutes.

Brush pita halves with olive oil and grill about 2 minutes per side.

Split burgers in half and place burger halves into pita halves.  Serve with tomato slices, onion, lettuce, and Tzatziki.
