When you tire of the basic burger, this Mediterranean-inspired version is just the ticket. The quick-pickled red onions add dimension and are a great addition to the cucumber, tomato, and feta. To keep with the Greek theme, serve the burgers in warm pita bread, though whole-wheat hamburger buns would work, too.

For a flavorful and colorful side, serve with Roasted Romanos and Tomatoes with Tapenade.

“I could eat this again and again and again.” This is a direct quote from my spouse. If you make this, make sure you get high quality, relatively thick pita bread to hold up against all the luscious lamb jus. Don’t skimp on the pickled onions, as their flavor and texture offset the lamb beautifully. Easy recipe with fantastic results!
Delicious! And I grilled them in a grill pan on the stovetop. The quick red onion pickly stuff is great on its own! Even my kids like these burgers!
