Moink in the Wild: Lamb Burger with Healthy Tzatziki Sauce

These lamb burgers were one of the best I’ve ever had!! The yogurt makes them extra fluffy, and the flavors couldn’t be more delicious! If you’re not a fan of lamb, feel free to sub for ground beef, buffalo, turkey, or even chicken, and call them Mediterranean burgers!

The Tzatziki Sauce is a must! It’s so refreshing, and this homemade version is SO much healthier than store bought, or ordering while you’re out! The cultured plain yogurt that I used has billions of probiotics, making this a gut healthy meal! This would also be great for kabobs, in wraps, and as a dip with veggies.

I think you will be ready for grilling season with these bad boys!
