Bacon and Feta Stuffed Lamb Burgers with Tzatziki
Happy Monday, friends! Did y’all have a fantastic weekend? We had some beautiful weather here in the Carolinas and we happily took advantage of it. We got out our bikes and went for an 8 mile ride on one of our local greenways. Y’all will totally be relieved to know that I made it through the whole ride without crashing. You may remember that I have some issues with balance and riding bikes.
Enough about my embarrassing bike crashes and let me tell you how absolutely gorgeous the greenway was – keeping in mind that I missed a lot of wildlife and flora due to the fact that I cannot take my eyes off the trail for more than a few seconds or I’ll end up in the bushes, pond, on a porcupine, etc. Anyhoo, there were yellow wildflowers blooming everywhere, ducks were swimming in the water, and turtles were chillin’ on rocks in the sunshine. It was a great day and I hope it’s safe to say that spring has sprung!
Since it’s Monday and we’ve established that Mondays blow, we’re going to ease into this week like an easy Sunday morning – even though I have to suit up and go to work. Womp Womp. On the positive side of things we’re still continuing this month-long celebration of all my favorite things for my birthday and I guess we can include some St. Pat’s celebrating too. I’ll share.
The theme today is pub food. I mean, seriously. Who doesn’t love a burger? We (and I don’t know why I say we when it’s really just me) have stuffed some ground lamb with crispy bacon and feta cheese and topped it with some super easy tzatziki. Toss this on an onion roll and throw in some fries and all is right with the world.
Oh! And guess what? Since we’re celebrating my St. Patrick’s Day birthday pretty much all month long, I have a present for you! A giveaway!

Lamb and me like each other a lot. Wait, let me rephrase that…me, lamb, and burgers like each other a lot. Combine all of them together and it’s a party that I never want to end. I had lamb for dinner last night too so we must be dinner soul sistas or something. I have some local farm lamb roast left in the freezer, I’m gonna grind some up and make your burgers next weekend. YUMMMMMMYY!!! BTW, I win for worse pics today. Just saying…;)
Dude. Me love the lamb too! And burgers. Let’s party!

Yum! I’m all over this burger. Seriously awesome combo! I just wish I could grab it from the screen and take a big ol’ bite 🙂
I wish you could too, Dawn! 🙂

I’m starting to think we should just declare every month your birthday month, because if this is the food you make, I’m thinking I NEED it all the time! Seriously I love good Pub food, and this burger is everything! I love lamb… and bacon. and feta. at tzatziki… so you already know how I feel about this beast. LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT. Seriously, this looks absolutely delicious! One of these days the four of us should go on a bike ride. You and I can crash into shhhh together, even though you were super graceful on this ride. That can’t last forever. Just sayin. 😉 Pinned! Cheers, sweets! xo
YES! We can celebrate my bday all month every month! Only I’m not aging at that pace, my friend! NO CRASHING! Fingers crossed! 🙂

Count me in with the pub food Rachelle! This lamb burger sounds awesome and I totally LOVE Tzatziki sauce! Nice to change it up from just a regular ground beef burger! Have a fun week!
Thanks, Mary Ann! Pub food rocks!

Keri @ Fashionable Foods
Omg, these burgers look amazing! I love me some pub food and anything with bacon is delicious 😉 A bike ride sounds wonderful, I haven’t gone in way too long!
Bike rides and me don’t always get along, my friend, but this one worked! Thank goodness! 🙂

This is incredible! I love the way this sounds! Definitely a way to make Monday a bit better if you ask me. I’m crazy about burgers anyway so this would make any day better haha!
Great idea by the way, a birthday month is so much better than a single birthday.
Mmmm – love me some pub food! And long bike rides that end without tears! So glad you had a beautiful weekend! We were traveling but I saw this beauty on social media and couldn’t wait to get home to check it out! My hubby will love this!
Ha! You gotta love the social media! And who said no tears? There just weren’t any crashes….. 🙂
Medha @ Whisk & Shout
This is some serious pub food! Feta stuffed lamb burgers? So much yes. Love the tzatziki too 🙂
This recipe looks delicious! And Happy Belated Birthday! :o)
Vicky @ Avocado Pesto
Sounds like a perfect bike ride (and even better without a fall)! This looks delicious. Happy to be hosting this giveaway with you. Pinning and yumming!
Bike rides are always better when there is no fall! Yay for giveaways!
Oh my goodness gracious, this looks divine!!!! I especially your food-tography 🙂 totally pinning, have a great day! xo
Those burgers look absolutely amazing! The lamb, Feta and Tzatziki combo makes this burger very ‘Greek’ish’ and I can’t wait to try it out. Thanks for sharing!
