Garlic, Greek Lamb Pita Burgers

Serves 4
What you'll need: 2 whole pitas (cut in half), 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbles, 1 pound of ground lamb, 2 tsp crushed garlic, 1 egg, 1/4 cup bread crumbs, zest of 1/2 a lemon, 2 tsp of fresh dill (finely chopped), 1-2 Tbsp kalamata olives (pitted and chopped, about 8 olives), pinch of salt and pepper
How to prepare: With your hands, mix all ingredients (except pitas and cheese) together well, in a bowl. Score meat into four sections. With each section, shape meat into a burger-like shape. Place on grill or saute pan for approximately 4-5 minutes per side.
Place pita halves on grill for about 30 seconds on each side. Place burgers inside pitas. Add the feta cheese. If you'd like, slice onions and place on grill about 30-60 seconds per side; add to pita-burger. Slice up tomatoes; add to pita-burger. Add mustard and/or tzatziki sauce if desired. Danielle's Tzatziki Sauce: 3/4 of a large cucumber (peeled and shredded, keep flesh only), 1/2 cup light sour cream, 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, 1 Tbsp fesh dill (finely chopped), 1 tsp crushed garlic, lemon zest and juice of 1/2 lemon, pinch of salt and pepper. Preparation: Mix all ingredients in a bowl and serve. Recommendation: Serve a Greek salad (lettuce, sliced tomatoes, kalamata olives, feta cheese, grilled yellow bell pepper, lemon wedges, salt and pepper with Greek salad dressing) and slices of pita wedges with tzatziki sauce on the side.
