Lamb burger

  • 1 pound ground American Lamb
  • 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1/8 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 tbsp chopped fresh mint
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp olive tapenade, premade
  • 1/2 tbsp marjoram
  • 1/2 tbsp rosemary
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper


  • 1 medium cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 head green leaf lettuce
  • 4 brioche hamburger buns, toasted

Whipped Feta

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened at room temperature
  • 6 ounces crumbled feta
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice


  1. Set Traeger to high (450 degrees) with lid up. Once smoking, close the lid and allow to pre-heat. About 15 minutes.

  2. While the grill is pre-heating prepare your meat mixture and prep your toppings.

  3. Add the ground lamb and the rest of the burger ingredients to a large mixing bowl. Mix with your hands, being careful not to over work the meat mixture.

  4. Once well mixed, form mixture into four patties and press your thumb into the center of each. Set aside.

  5. Wash and slice your toppings and prepare whipped feta. Set aside.

  6. Place the burgers on the grill and cook until a crust forms, about 3-4 minutes per side for medium-rare, or about 5 minutes per side for well done. Only flipping once.

  7. Transfer burgers to a plate to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

  8. Place burgers on buns and top with a generous smear of whipped feta.

  9. Layer lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes and onions. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
