Course: Lunch, Main Course
Cuisine: American
Servings: 4 servings


For the Cucumber-Mint Sauce

  • ¼ cucumber
  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves chopped

For the Burgers

To Serve

  • 4 4 inch pita breads
  • cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 8 eggplant slices grilled


  • Start with the sauce so it can sit for a while. Seed and finely chop the cucumber.
  • In a small mixing bowl, add the cucumber, yogurt, 2 tablespoons fresh mint and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • In a large mixing bowl, blend the lamb, cumin and the rest of the mint and again season with salt and pepper. Make four equally sized burgers.
  • Trim the tops off the pita breads so the openings are large enough to fit a burger. If you like, you can toast the pita bread or warm them up on the grill.
  • Cook the lamb burgers the same as you would a beef hamburger to the doneness you and your guests like.
  • To serve, place a burger inside a pita bread, add a slice of grilled eggplant, top with a little of the cucumber/mint sauce and finish with a little shredded romaine lettuce.
