If you aren’t using a pre-mixed spice mixture, let’s mix together the one I’ve listed above first. Yes, it’s a lot of spices, but it takes 2 minutes to put together and is absolutely delicious
Add your olive oil and about 2 ½ tbsp of the aforementioned spice mixture to your ground lamb.
Get in there with your hands and mix everything together so that the spice mixture is evenly distributed through the meat.
Form your ground lamb into six patties. Cover these with plastic and let them sit in the fridge for about half an hour If my math is correct, these will be 1/3lb burgers. If you want them smaller, make eight ¼ lb patties. Personally, I think these were the perfect size.
While your meat is chilling, we need to do two things. First, preheat your barbecue. Get that thing nice and hot. Second, slice up your veg. Slice the cucumber and onion into nice rounds, and slice your pepper so you get some big flat pieces.
Throw your burgers down on your nice hot grill. I wanted a quick grill on my red peppers, too, so I BBQ’d both at the same time. The burgers should only need a few minutes on each side. The peppers are about the same
I also fried up the bacon on my BBQ’s side burner
After you’ve flipped your burger, top it with some of the feta and a couple pieces of your roasted peppers. Leave these on for the few minutes it takes to cook the second side.
Top the burger with the onion slices, cucumbers and some sliced kalamata olives
Then finish with the tzatziki and a couple bacon strips. Zeus, himself, would go crazy for this burger. It was so delicious, I almost cried… literally.
