Greek gyro lamb burgers have the same great flavors of a gyro in burger form. With a perfectly seasoned grilled lamb burger topped with homemade tzatziki sauce.
Have you ever tried a Greek gyro? This Greek gyro lamb burger is a fun and delicious twist on the traditional gyro,. Instead of a pita you’ve got a bun and instead of slow roasted meat from a spit, ground lamb made into a flavorful burger patty.
These flavorful burgers are made with Australian ground lamb, seasoned with oregano, salt and pepper, garlic, olive oil and Worcestershire sauce. Top the patty with lettuce, sliced tomatoes, sliced red onions a homemade cool and creamy tzatziki sauce.
Aussie Grassfed Lamb is high quality, and delicious. Its 100% grass-fed, with no hormones, antibiotics or GMO’s. Lamb is a perfect high protein option, and is a great source of iron and zinc.
This burger is made in just a few minutes, cooked up on the grill, for a perfectly easy and delicious dinner. This is one of my most favorite burgers ever now!
I recommend cooking your burgers in a Big Green Egg. I am obsessed with mine and we have used it dozens of times for many different types of recipes, like these amazing burgers in the month that we’ve owned it.
