These burgers turned out really good. My husband makes his own version that is very similar to this recipe (using a little of this and that)...and I wanted to replicate it. Suprisingly enough, this came very close to his. I used dry herbs and threw in some cilantro and green onions. I used a bit more salt than what the recipe called for and used ground pork rather than lamb. I've never cooked with lamb before...simply because I never see it at our grocery store. I was given several compliments and plan on making this again. Thanks for sharing Alan.

Mighty tasty burgers! I substituted dark corn syrup for the molasses, and white wine for the sherry. Very good - and the burgers held together well on the grill. Just let them cook well before turning over.

Fabulous flavor. I wouldn't change a thing to the recipe for the burgers. Even when cooked all the way through the meat was so tender and juicy. The only thing I did differently was I made some homemade tzaziki yogurt sauce and added a spoonful or two of that to the burger and feta in the grilled pita pocket. This will be a new favorite for the grill! Thanks Alan.
