Instructions

Mix together in a medium bowl the lamb, turkey, 1-teaspoon of the spice mix, and
the feta cheese (if desired).
 
Divide the mixture into four equal parts and form into burger patties.
 
Sprinkle both sides of the patties with the Mediterranean Spice Mix.
 
Heat the 360 by Americraft 3.5 quart sauté pan over medium heat.  The pan is ready when sprinkled water droplets dance on the surface of the pan.
 
Place the burger patties in the pan. (You should hear a definite sizzle.)  Add 1teaspoon of water to the center of the pan.  Cover the pan with the lid. Immediately reduce the heat to low.
 
Cook the burgers for 4-5 minutes.
 
Remove the lid.  Turn the burgers.  Replace the lid and cook on low until the burgers reach an internal temperature of 160 F. (Approximately 3-4 minutes)
 
Transfer the burgers to a plate and allow them to rest for 5 minutes.
 
Serve on a buttered, toasted hamburger roll with leaf lettuce, sliced tomato, shaved red onion and a big dollop of our *Yogurt-Cucumber Sauce.
 
*Tip: Make the patties thin with a well in the center.  This will keep them in a nice burger shape during the cooking process.
 
Mediterranean Spice Mix
Toast the cumin, coriander, cardamom, cinnamon, and cloves in a dry 360 by Americraft  7” fry pan over medium heat for 3-4 minutes.  Swirl the pan often to avoid burning the mix.
 
Place the toasted spices in a spice mill and grind to a powder.  Transfer the spices to a small jar or bowl.
 
Add 2-Tablespoons of kosher salt and ¼-teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper to the mix.
 
Stir to mix.  In an airtight container, this spice mix should remain fresh for 6 months.
