Lamb Sliders with Feta-Yogurt Sauce


If you love gyros, you will love these succulent lamb sliders.  Not only are they easy to prepare, but packed full of flavor. 


Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 8 servings


  • 2 1/2  pounds ground lamb
  • juice of 1 lemon, plus 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 7-8 mint leaves, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 14-16 slider buns or small dinner rolls
  • 1 small red onion, cut into thin rings (optional)
  • For yogurt sauce:
  • 2 1/2 cups Greek yogurt
  • 1 small cucumber, seeded and grated
  • 1/2 cup feta crumbles
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


To prepare yogurt sauce, combine all sauce ingredients in medium bowl.  Make sure to squeeze grated cucumber, to release excess liquid before adding to mixture.  Cover bowl with plastic wrap and place into refrigerator.  Sauce can be made 1-6 hours in advance.

Preheat grill for medium-high heat. To prepare burgers, combine ground lamb with lemon juice, zest, Worcestershire sauce, mint, onion powder, minced garlic, oregano, paprika salt and pepper.  Form into 14-16 small patties, a little bigger than the buns.  Place patties onto grill and cook for 4 to 5 minutes per side.  Once cooked through, remove from heat, placed onto slider buns and top with yogurt sauce and red onion rings.
