Herbed Lamb Burgers

Recipe from: Bon Appétit, Jul 2001, p81
Servings: 2

Serve with bowls of diced tomato, sliced romaine lettuce and purchased eggplant salad to spoon atop burgers in pitas. Finish with fresh apricots, grapes and cookies.

8 ounces ground lamb
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ cup plain yogurt
½ teaspoon ground cumin

2 pita bread rounds, halved

Gently mix first five ingredients in medium bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper; mix again. Form mixture into four 2-inch diameter ½-inch-thick patties.

Stir yogurt and cumin in medium bowl to blend. Set aside.

Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Grill patties to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium. Unwrap pitas; transfer to 2 plates. Fill each with 1 patty. Serve, passing cumin-yogurt separately.
