    1. Preheat the barbecue for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
    2. Mix the lamb mince, beef mince, mint, ginger, 1 teaspoon garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and pepper in a large bowl until just combined. Divide evenly into four portions and shape in to large patties. Set aside. Mix Greek yoghurt, lemon zest, 1 clove garlic and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a bowl; cover and refrigerate.
    3. Cook the lamb and beef patties on the preheated grate until the burgers are cooked to your desired degree of doneness, 3 to 4 minutes per side for well done. Place the slices of onion and green tomato on the grill. Cook until lightly charred, about 1 minute on each side.
    4. Spread yoghurt sauce over the sliced ciabatta rolls. Assemble each burger by placing the patty on the the roll and dividing the feta cheese slices over the patties. Top with a slice of tomato, onion, and 2 leaves of rocket, followed by the top half of the roll.

    These lamb burgers are the perfect combination of easy-with-wow factor and great for a group. It's worth the time to make the simple yogurt sauce to go with it, but I've used store-bought Tzatziki in a pinch too. Also, I love these with caramelized sweet onions and regular tomatoes on top, but what a great way to use all those green tomatoes! Fantastic recipe, as is!  -  10 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe has been a favorite of our Make-Ahead Mamas cooking group for over three years. We make it every summer during our Summer Grilling Cooking Party and it's a great gourmet alternative to a traditional hamburgers for your next BBQ. To save time the day of your BBQ, make these ahead of time! Simply freeze the uncooked patties in a single layer on parchment paper on a cookie sheet, then stack the frozen patties in a freezer container or Ziploc Freezer bag. Thaw the day before your party, or cook the patties directly from the freezer (just add a few more minutes to the cooking time!). Delicious!  -  11 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was wonderful! Didn't alter any of the directions/ingredients and it turned out fabulously. My husband was just raving about these, will make it again!  -  28 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
