Feta Stuffed Lamb Sliders

After looking at my past few posts, I must be going through a burger phase or something! I have been wanting to do some kind of spin on stuffed burgers or sliders for a while.

When I came across ground lamb meat at the store, I knew this was it! I did a simple lemon pepper tzatziki but I think roasted red pepper or mushrooms would be great additions too!

First, I started off with 1lb of ground lamb. I seasoned my meat with Southern Flavor Seasoning. I LOVE this stuff for using with ground meat. My Grandmother turned me onto it, and now its my go-to seasoning for ground meats!

I used about a tablespoon and mixed it with my hands into the ground lamb. I let that marinate for about 20 minutes in the fridge.

This yields about 6 sliders.

For the tzatziki spread, I mixed:
1/2 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Whisk all together in a bowl and set aside until ready to serve.

I formed the ground lamb meat into little patty cups. I made these slider size, so about 2-2.5 inches in diameter. Fill with crumbled feta.

Then cover the feta filled patties with meat.

Super easy! These felt heavy to me. Which they should because they are stuffed and all.

Move these to the grill. Grill on medium high heat for about 3-4 minutes each side or until cooked through.

I used King’s Hawaiian Mini Sub Rolls because I had some leftover from another meal. The regular sweet rolls work perfectly for sliders as well!

Pile the cooked feta stuffed lamb sliders onto the King’s Hawaiian rolls. Spread on the tzatizki and add any toppings you like. I ate mine with just tzatziki and they were delicious!

Super simple and great as a meal or appetizer.

The lemon pepper tzatziki and lamb really give your taste buds a switch up from normal burgers.

What are your favorite sliders?

    These sound delish! I also think you should try a variation for a breakfast slider. A restaurant here does a “brunch burger” with 2 parts breakfast sausage, 1 part beef (or whatever other ground animal you prefer), with cheese, bacon, and a fried egg. Not sure how the egg would work with sliders so that may be out but you could do the rest. I think it should be served on a buttermilk biscuit. Let me know when you are taking me up on this and i’ll fly into town 🙂
