Souvlaki Burger Wraps


Lamb burgers are one of our favorites. The meat lends itself very well to grilling. Usually, we will buy a whole leg of lamb, grind the meat ourselves, and divide it into dinner-sized portions. We then freeze the extra portions for later. This way, we always have ground lamb on hand, since it can sometimes be difficult to find in stores.

I loved the meatball-size nuggets of these burgers. They cooked super-fast, and got a wonderful char on the outside. And I have a cooking confession: when I’m pressed for time, I will stop by a local Mediterranean restaurant and buy some of their tzatziki sauce. It’s something I don’t mind buying pre-made.

  1. Oh my goodness. Anything with lamb, feta, and tzatziki makes me a very happy girl. These look delicious! I’ve never actually cooked with ground lamb before (partly because its so hard to find!), but I’m going to have to start.
