1/4 cup milk
1-1/2 pounds ground lamb
12 slider buns
3 plum tomatoes, sliced
12 Feta cheese in thin slices
1/2 cup red onion, finely chopped
Oil and preheat grill to medium-high. Toss bread crumbs with the oregano, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper. Stir in milk and eggs; combine thoroughly. Combine ground lamb with bread crumb mixture until fully incorporated. Form mixture into 12 small (slider size) patties.
Place patties on the grill, cook for 4-5 minutes per side. Meat should cook to medium doneness (160°F) until no longer pink in center.
To serve: place patties on slider buns and garnish with tomato, Feta cheese and red onion.
Note: This recipe can also be made into regular burgers by dividing lamb mixture into 4 patties instead of 12 and using regular sized hamburger buns.
