Tzatziki Lamb Burgers

I saw this post over at Coconut & Lime and just knew I had to try it. These burgers pack a ton of flavor! The combination of ingredients was wonderful…we loved the garlic flavor inside the juicy burgers, and the toppings were absolutely perfect for it. The herbs and yogurt make it nice and refreshing. And, as an added bonus…Dino ate grilled eggplant. And really liked it! Talk about progress! We’ll definitely make this again – it rocked! The only issue I had was that the patties I made weren’t anywhere near as wide as the buns I bought, so it was a little awkward to eat.
