These gyro burgers are a household favorite. Made from ground lamb and authentic spices, these  can be dressed up with Greek favorites like feta and kalamata olives, but they pack such a punch of zesty flavor on their own, that you can eat them any way you please.


  • 1 lb. ground lamb
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice


  1. Add all ingredients to a large bowl. Using your hands, mix until well-combined, being careful not to overwork the meat.
  2. Form into 4 patties that fit the size of the pita bread you are using.
  3. Pan fry over medium heat, about 5 minutes per side, until cooked through.
  4. Serve on pita bread with cucumbers slices, tomato and tzatziki.
