In a small bowl, mix together the Greek yogurt, feta cheese and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Fire up the grill and preheat on medium high for 5 minutes. Cook the lamb patties for 4 minutes on each side and let rest for a minute before assembling the sliders.

To put the sliders together, slather on the Greek yogurt mixture on the bottom of the bun. Rest the patty on top with a few slices of cucumber and finish with another dollop of the yogurt sauce.

Enjoy immediately with your favorite barbecue sides!
