So, the wonderful meal I made on the evening of my new embarrasing moment- Lamb burgers with feta sauce and cucumbers, it was also delicious! So, I thought I would recommend at least the dinner portion of that evening, if not the bonfire. I served this with a light summer strawberry/orange feta salad with poppyseed dressing.
1.5 lbs lamb
2 tspn. curry powder
3 scallions, thinly sliced
course salt and pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 oz. feta cheese
2 tblspn plain yogurt
8 slices country bread, toasted if desired- yes I did desire
1 kirby cucumber, cut lengthwise into ribbons with a vegetable peeler
- In a medium bowl, combine lamb, curry powder, and 2 sliced scallions. Season generously with salt and pepper. Mix gently with a fork and form into 4 oval patties to fit on the bread, and about 1 in. thick.
- In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Season patties with salt and pepper. Cook until browned and just cooked through, 4-6 min. per side. (reduce heat if browning to quickly, or grill outside over fire)
- Meanwhile in a small bowl, mix feta, yogurt, and remaining scallions, mashing cheese gently to combine. Season with salt and pepper
- Spread for slices of bread with feta mixture, top with cucumbers, lamb patties, and remaining bread.
Picture taken with my phone, so not that great! Sorry!
