  • 2 tablespoons mayo
  • Kosher salt

For the Buns:

  • 2 ciabatta or brioche rolls
  • 2 thick slices of feta cheese
  • Olive oil
  • Red onion, thinly sliced


For the Patties:

  • 1. Pre-heat grill to 450-500 degrees.
  • 2. Divide ground lamb in half. Form into two 8-ounce patties and create large divots in the center.
  • 3. Season with kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin per burger patty.
  • 4. Grill about 4-5 minutes per side, or until burgers are done to your liking. Transfer to a cutting board.
  • 5. Add feta cheese slices to the top of each patty and allow to rest for 5 minutes.

For the Mayo:

  • 6. Mix mayo with ground cumin and a pinch of kosher salt. Set aside.

To assemble:

  • 7. While burgers rest, toast the buns.
  • 8. Spread the bottom half of each bun with half of the cumin mayo and place the burger patty with feta on top.
  • 9. Sprinkle with more cracked black pepper, add red onions, a drizzle of olive oil and the top bun. Enjoy!
