Greek Lamb Burgers with Spinach Feta Tzatziki sauce is a healthy way to enjoy a burger. It is perfect way to stay on your diet and enjoy Greek flavors.
What would summer be without a good burger on the grill? I don’t think I would want to find out. Luckily you don’t have to. I’ve got a delicious and healthy burger recipe for you today, Greek Burgers with Spinach Taztziki. Almost once a week I crave a gyro. The flavor of good gyro meat is so addictive. We do have a small hole in the wall restaurant by us that makes the best gyro’s outside of Greece. It really is a hole in the wall and is only open sporadically so I get to enjoy their wonderful gyros a few times a year. I’ve tried making my own but it isn’t the same. I still want all that delicious Greek flavor so I decided to put all those lovely flavors in a burger.
My whole family loves lamb, especially Stella! Stella is our 9-year-old cat. She was the Queen of the castle, at least in her own mind, until Lucy, our 4-year-old Golden Retriever, came along. It was not love at first sight. In fact, Stella abhorred Lucy. She ran upstairs and basically refused to come down, except on rare occasions. The very first occasion was when we were having a special dinner eating lamb in the dining room. All of the sudden, she is standing up with her paws on my chair meowing. I gave her some lamb and she happily chomped it up. She took a few more very small nibbles and ran back upstairs. We were so happy thinking she was finally willing to be down stairs with Lucy but it was short-lived. She refused to come back down.
Little Stella will wait for us to come up to see her at night. She loves to lay in my daughter’s bed for bed time stories. She will happily snuggle up with some of my daughter’s stuffed animals on her bed and snooze until I come up. Then it is Mommy time. She curls right up on me and purrs like crazy. If I get up, she follows me. As soon as I get back in bed, she lies on top of me again. She also apparently thinks I am a trampoline. Whenever she jumps from the floor to our bed, she always (I mean always) jumps on me first. She could easily jump from the floor over me onto the bed but no. She has to jump on me then jump off me onto the bed. If I forget to feed her before I go to bed, she will walk over me all night. If you are not a cat person, you probably think I am crazy. Maybe I am but she is so darn loveable. I don’t mind too much that she treats me like a trampoline.
My original plan for this recipe was to talk about a trip to Greece when I was a kid. Instead, I think I should call this the Stella recipe! Any way, Greek Lamb Burgers with Spinach Tzatziki are so delicious, even your cat will think so. I bet your kids will like it to. My daughter is a lamb fanatic, too. Give it a try and see why Stella loves lamb so much.
