Juicy Greek burgers topped with creamy tzatziki sauce, crisp cucumber, tomato, and crumbled feta cheese. This is an easy recipe that you can also make with ground beef, ground turkey, ground lamb, or chicken. Cook the burgers on the stove or on the grill for an easy weeknight dinner.
These easy Greek burgers are the best kind of summer dinner. They have a quick cook time, and you can cook the burgers inside on the stove or outside on the grill. The toppings are easy-breezy, and the flavors are light, refreshing, and so delicious.
It’s a choose-your-own-adventure recipe, too! Make the burgers with ground beef, turkey, chicken, or (and this is my fave) ground lamb – any and all work great.
So, if you’re in the mood for some summer flavors, this easy Greek burger recipe is one to add to your list.
- Ground lamb – or use ground beef, ground turkey, or ground chicken to change it up.
- Kosher salt and black pepper
- Burger buns
- Tzatziki sauce – Make your own or buy it at the store. Tzatziki is usually hiding somewhere around the produce department.
- Crumbled feta cheese
- Sliced tomato
- Sliced cucumber
- Sliced red onion
How to Make the Burgers
Divided the ground meat into four equal parts. Form burger patties about one inch wider than the bun (they will shrink as they cook).
Lightly pat them into a patty – don’t compress the meat too much otherwise your burgers will be dense. Use a light hand and form them just enough so they hold together.
Make an indent in the center of each patty so they don’t puff up while they cook. Season the patties with salt and pepper on both sides.
Cook the burgers over medium-high heat in a large skillet, grill pan, or on an outdoor grill. Cook them for seven to ten minutes or until they are cooked through and the juices run clear.
Place the cooked burgers on the buns and top each one with one tablespoon of tzatziki, one tablespoon of feta, a tomato slice, two cumber slices, and a few slices of onion.
If you’re not excited about lamb burgers, feel free to use ground beef, or you can make turkey burgers.
I like to keep the burger seasoning very simple with salt and pepper, but for extra flavor add a little dried oregano.
If you want some extra greens, top the burgers with some arugula or romaine lettuce.
I prefer hamburger buns, but you could also serve your burger with pita bread. Slice a pita round in half and then place the burger and toppings inside.
Serve them with grilled veggies or a crisp green salad. Or, if you feel like a treat, add some garlic French fries or potato chips on the side.
There’s no better time than now to switch up the summer burger game. These Greek lamb burgers are just the way to do it – juicy, delicious, and tons of fresh flavor.
