1 lb (500 g) ground lamb
1/3 cup (80 mL) green onions, finely chopped
½ tsp (2 mL) ground cumin
½ tsp (2 mL) salt, or to taste
¼ tsp (1 mL) ground pepper, or to taste
1/3 cup (80 mL), about 2 oz (60 g) feta cheese, finely diced‚
1 tsp (5 mL) Worcestershire sauce
1 large egg
3 tbsp (45 mL) bread crumbs
½ cup (125 mL) mayonnaise
2 tsp (10 mL) capers, finely chopped
2 tsp (10 mL) fresh mint, finely chopped
½ tsp (2 mL) Dijon mustard
8 slider buns
½ cup (125 mL) arugula

  1. In a large bowl, gently mix together lamb, green onions, cumin, salt, pepper, feta, Worcestershire sauce, egg and bread crumbs.
  2. Divide mixture into 8 equal portions. With wet hands, form into 8 patties, making a ¼-inch (5-mm) indent in the middle of each so that it cooks evenly.
  3. Heat an oiled grill to high and cook burgers for 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
  4. Meanwhile, make mayonnaise by stirring together mayonnaise, capers, mint and mustard.
  5. Place cooked burgers on slider buns and top with mayonnaise and arugula.

Makes 8 sliders
