Ingredients

  • 8 Ounces feta
  • 5 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Pound ground lamb
  • 1 Cup fresh herbs, such as mint, basil, dill, and parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3/4 Teaspoons Morton® Kosher Salt
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 4 burger buns
  • Fresh arugula, for serving

Directions

Combine the feta and 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a food processor, and process until completely smooth, about 2 minutes.

In a medium bowl, combine the lamb, herbs, garlic, salt, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Mix well. Form the mixture into 4 patties.

Grill the patties over high heat until cooked through, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove the burgers from the grill and set aside.

While the burgers rest, brush the tomatoes with the remaining olive oil, and place on the grill. Grill until char marks appear, and the tomato just starts to soften, about 2 minutes per side.

Grill the buns until lightly toasted. Spread the whipped feta on both halves of every bun. Add the burger, and top with grilled tomato and fresh arugula.
