Ingredients

Burger

  • 3/4 lb grass fed hamburger
  • 3/4 lb pasture raised lamb
  • 1/2 tbsp oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 small red onion finely diced

Tzatziki

  • 1 cups full fat greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup diced or shredded cucumber
  • Salt for cucumbers
  • 1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 tsp dill
  • 1 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil

Add-Ins For Bowl (per bowl)

  • Lettuce or Greens
  • Sliced roasted red pepper
  • Cucumbers
  • Fresh red onion
  • Tomatoes
  • Kalamata Olives
  • Feta
  • Tabouli or Cous Cous

Instructions

Burgers

  • Add meat and all spices to a large bowl.
  • Add onions, garlic and lemon zest. Mix Well.
  • Using large cookie scoop, form into patties.
  • Grill, Bake, or Pan fry. My favorite is grilling. Timing should be adjusted to grill and burger size. [In the Oven: 425℉ for about 20 minutes. Pan Fry: Cook over medium high heat until about 2 minutes each side. Adjust for size.]

Tzatziki

  • Dice or shred cucumber and place in a mesh strainer. Sprinkle with salt. Toss and set aside. [Salting the cucumber pulls out the excess water keeping the tzatziki from being too watery.]
  • Mix yogurt, garlic and dill, lemon juice, and olive oil.
  • Press the liquid out of the cucumbers and then add to yogurt mixture.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.

Turn it into a bowl

  • Select the add-ins that you like. Shoot for about 1 cup of greens and a combined 1-2 cups of other chopped veggies.
  • Top with olives, feta and tzatziki.
  • For an extra boost of carbs add about ½ cup tabouli or cous cous.
