Kefi Lamb Burger
Daniel Krieger

Take a trip to the Mediterranean with this Greek-inspired lamb burger. A combination of dried parsley, oregano, and dill lends pleasant herbal flavors to the lamb patties, and a well-dressed salad with feta tops the patty.

  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for the grill
  • 1 slice sweet onion
  • 8 ounces ground lamb
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 1 scallion, green and white parts, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic confit*
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed coriander
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 leaves arugula
  • 4 Greek olives, pitted and diced
  • 4 pieces sun-dried tomato
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta
  • 1 teaspoon dill
  • 1 tablespoon mint
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 brioche bun


Preheat the grill over medium-high heat. Coat the grill with olive oil.


Grill the onion until there are grill marks on both sides, about 3-5 minutes per side. Remove from the heat. Combine the lamb, shallot, scallion, garlic confit, parsley flakes, oregano, dill, and coriander in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and mix well. Form a ½-inch-thick patty (do not overhandle the meat).


Brush the grill with more olive oil and grill to medium-rare, about 3 minutes per side. Meanwhile, combine the onion, arugula, olives, sun-dried tomato, feta, dill, mint, lemon juice, and olive oil in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and mix well to combine. Place the patty on the bun, top with the salad, and serve.
