It's got to be Greek style grilled burger recipes with Lamb. Olive oil and fresh oregano abound in this mix so your can be sure that a good burger awaits cooking.
Lamb is one of my favorite meats so to make a burger out of some ground lamb has got to be great and to top it off, I've added Feta cheese to the mix.
If you're not familiar with Feta, it's a yews' milk cheese with a slightly salty taste and I think that it complements the mix beautifully.I've written more about feta cheese in my Greek salad recipe.
The feta will create white specks in your burger patties when you form them and don't wait for these specks to melt during the cooking, because they won't, they'll stay solid providing little bursts of saltiness when you tuck into your burger.

The method statement below is basic and will make you a good burger but for more on the fine art of burger making ready my burger making guide prior to finishing this method statement.
Throw all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and crumble in the Feta cheese. Get your hands in and give it a good mulch around to make sure that all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
Make your patties, you should get about 6 out of this mix.
Place them on a medium hot grill and 5 to 8 minutes each side is the order of the day. As with all grilled burger recipes, just let them sit over the heat, there's no need to flip them all the time or push them down onto the grill grate as this will only serve to squeeze out the juiciness.
Lamb is one of those meats that you can serve pink because any nasties live on the surface of the meat and are destroy when cooked. A burger however is ground lamb so if any surface nasties have landed they now could be anywhere in the burger and it's for this reason that always recommend cooking a burger to the appropriate core temperature and us a probe - colour is not a good indication of safe cooking.
When your burger is cooked, remove it from the heat and allow to rest for five minutes. To complete the Greek feel top your burger off with a little tzaziki barbecue dip.
