1 1/2 lbs. ground Ontario Lamb 

1/2g medium inion, finely minced 

1 tbsp. Dijon mustard 

1.4 cup copped fresh mint

2tsp. Chopped fresh oregano 

1.2 tsp each of salt and pepper

4 hamburger buns

Garnish with tzatziki, crumbled feta, thinly sliced red onion, olive slices, lettuce, cucumber slices and tomatoes.  


In a large bowl, use fork to gently combine the lamb, onion, Dijon, parsley, mint,
