Grilled Greek Lamb Burgers with Tzatziki

Everyone has had a beef burger, so I thought I would mix it up a bit and use lamb with a Greek twist! If you really don’t like Lamb you can sub in beef.
Make Ahead: Up to 2 days ahead, make tzatziki sauce, cover and keep in the fridge. Up to 1 day ahead, make the burger patties and keep wrapped in the fridge.

Makes 4 burgers
