Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time25 mins


  • For the burgers
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 kg welsh lamb mince
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 tbsp of oregano
  • a handful of chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper

To serve

  • some pitta bread
  • home made tzatziki with full fat yoghurt
  • a bowl of greek salad
  • some iceburg lettuce sliced


  • Chop the onions, crush the garlic, chop the parsley.
  • Add to the lamb and mix in well with your hands.
  • To make the patties, take one big tablespoon of meat and roll into a ball. Then lightly flatten to make a patty shape.
  • Heat a barbecue or grill and cook for about 8-10 mins, turning frequently, until cooked to your liking. Alternatively, you can cook it in a hot pan with a bit of rapeseed oil on the pan to prevent sticking.
  • To serve, heat up some pita bread in the toaster. (Note:All shop bought pitta bread needs furhter cooking and should not be eaten straight from the pack.)
  • Split open the bread, spread with a generous dollop of tzatziki, then add the burgers and some salad. Squeeze some lemon juice over this before you serve. You could always get your guests to make up their own.
  • Of course, I always have some hot sauce on the side for those who want to spice it up a bit.


Don't forget to toast your pitta bread.
You can make these into lamb meatballs (biftekia) too if you prefer. Serve that with some slow cooked tomato sauce.
