Mediterranean Grilled Half-Moon Burger Recipe

The family was together recently, and I had a craving for the taste of middle-eastern food, so I chose to place something together. I didn’t have a lot of time to cook that day, so I wanted to do something that would be simple to prepare. It was a nice afternoon, so I thought something on grill would be nice. Here’s what I came up with:


1 lb. ground lamb

1 lb. ground beef

2 eggs, beaten

1/4 cup olive oil

1/2 cup finely chopped onion

2.5 tsp. dried oregano leaves

2 tsp. dried parsley flakes

1 tsp. dried mint

1 tsp. Lawry’s® seasoned pepper (or ground black pepper)

10 pieces pita bread


Mix ingredients together well in a mixing bowl. Form into small patties (should make about 10 patties). Then, cut each patty down the center, making 2 half-moon shapes, so that when you serve on the pita bread (folded over), the shape of the burger conforms to the pita bread. Grill the patties on a well-oiled grill. Baste each side or patties with olive oil while grilling and sprinkle with a small salt and pepper if desired. Warm the pita bread in an oven or microwave before serving. Place two of the half-moon patties on each piece of pita bread and fold the pita bread over. Tastes fantastic with fresh onion slices and fresh tomato slices added—and, or course, Griff’s Mediterranean Cucumber Dressing (see recipe below).

Griff’s Mediterranean Cucumber Sauce


1/2 cup light sour cream

1/2 cup plain yogurt

1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded, and finely chopped

1 clove minced garlic

1 tbsp. lemon juice

1/4 tsp. ground black pepper

1/4 tsp. dried mint


Thoroughly mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving.
