Quick evening meal: Lamb and feta burgers with potato wedges, tzatkhi sauce and salad

I am all for quick evening meals, but they must not (as far as possible) involve opening cans and processed food. This meal fits the bill and its both yummy and healthy.  It is also a recipe that would be perfect for children to help if you are feeling a little tired!  Once again, this is not one of my originals, I found it at The Happy Larder blog and once again I made some very small changes. 

Lamb and feta burgers with potato wedges,
tzatkhi sauce and salad

Mix together the following ingredients, crumbing the feta into small pieces.
  • 500g lamb mince
  • 150g feta (I only use Danish feta)
  • 1 red onion finely chopped (could use brown)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons dried breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper  
Make into burgers - size is up to you - big, medium or small. Rest in fridge for 15-30 mins. (you could turn these into meatballs if you wanted to)

I made 9 burgers, medium size.
Cook in frypan (or the barbecue/griddle) until cooked through. The smell is amazing! 
Homemade tzatkhi
  • 1/2 cup greek yoghurt
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 mini zucchini finely chopped (or grated)
  • salt and pepper
  • mint (finely chopped)
The amounts of each ingredient vary depending on how many tzatkhi you want to make.

Make some homemade potato wedges and serve with the burgers and salad.  The lady from The Happy Larder included bread with hers, I think you can do anything you like! 

These are delicious and have been added to our collection of weekday recipes.
