Almost Spicy Grilled Lamb Burger with Feta N’ Cucumber Taziki Sauce!

Lamb Burgers w/ Feta N’ Cucumber Taziki Sauce

Hello Friends,

This week’s recipe is a good one…. Lamb Burgers!

I decided to use lamb because it’s a much healthier then beef while still providing all the rich flavors and texture of a traditional burger.  Another healthy alternative to accompany your lamb burger are baked sweet potato fries.  Yummy!
