  • Yields: 4 Servings


1 lb ground lamb

2 teaspoons Greek seasoning

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 oz crumbled feta cheese

1 tablespoon finely chopped Kalamata olives

Pinch of salt

4 eggs

1 teaspoon vinegar

3 egg yolks

1 teaspoon lemon juice

½ teaspoon Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons Greek yogurt

5 tablespoons melted butter

2 pita bread rounds


To prepare the lamb burgers; combine ground lamb, Greek seasoning, garlic feta cheese, Kalamata olives and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Mix by hand just until all the ingredients are well incorporated.

Heat a grill pan over medium heat. Spray pan with nonstick spray. Divide lamb mixture into 4 patties and place patties on hot grill pan. Cook lamb for 5-7 minutes per side.

Meanwhile prepare poached eggs. Fill a deep skillet with water (about three inches deep). Bring water to a simmer over medium high heat. Add vinegar. Carefully break each egg into the water. Reduce heat to medium low and cook eggs for 3 minutes. After three minutes remove eggs with a slotted spoon and set aside.

To prepare the hollandaise sauce: in a blender combine the eggs yolks, lemon juice, mustard and yogurt. Blend just until combined. Carefully and slowly add melted butter in a slow stream and blend mixture until butter has been combined and mixture is slightly thick.

To assemble, cut pita rounds and half and toast slightly.

Place half a pita round on a plate. Top with one lamb burger and a poached egg. Slowly drizzle hollandaise sauce over each egg; serve immediately.
