Feta Lamb Burgers & Mint Aioli

Here’s my recipe for grilled feta burgers with fresh herbs, topped with mint aioli.

Feta Lamb Burger Ingredients

The ingredients are easy to find at your local grocery; ground lamb, fresh herbs, onion, and feta. I buy Dodoni feta at Costco, but 2 or 3 brands of crumbled feta are in most markets now. These herbs are from my garden. I have a decent size patch of Greek oregano, but I used dry oregano in this lamb mixture. Fresh oregano can be a very strong and over powering herb.

This recipe will make 4 to 6 lamb burgers, depending on the size you want.

Mint Aioli Ingredients

The mint aioli is a really quick recipe. You can make aioli from scratch, whipping eggs and olive oil. I took the easy route and used Hellmann’s mayonnaise as the base. The mint is from my garden. I have it contained, so I let it flower. The bumble bees love it.

Mint Aioli

I like to make this aioli with a lot of flavor, so add the garlic and dry mustard slowly. Taste it as you mix, to make sure it has just the right amount of zing for your taste buds. You know the rule. You can always add more, but you can’t take away.

  1. in the list of ingredients there is soy and vinegar but not mentioned in the instructions. Where do they belong?

    1. Hello Janice, Thank you for your question and the catch of my omission. In the printable recipe, the soy sauce and vinegar are listed under the “LAMB AND FETA BURGERS” ingredients. I will update the “Instructions” to reflect that addition: “In a large bowl, add the ground lamb, onion, feta, parsley, basil, oregano, salt and pepper, soy sauce and vinegar.”
