For the Roasted Peppers & Onions:

  • 2 large green bell peppers, (thinly sliced)
  • 1/2 a large red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper

For the Herby Yogurt Sauce:

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 large handfuls fresh parsley
  • 1 large lemon, (zested and juiced)
  • 1-2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste

For the Lamb Slider Patties

  • 1 pound ground American lamb
  • 4 large cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

For Serving:

  • Brioche buns, (toasted)
  • Lettuce or arugula


Make the Herb Yogurt Sauce: Add all yogurt sauce ingredients to your food processor and pulse to combine. Add a bit more olive oil as needed to help it come together. Pop this into the fridge until ready to serve.

Roast the Peppers & Onions: Preheat your oven to 425° F. Toss the peppers, onions, olive oil, salt, and pepper together well on a large baking sheet. Roast for 18-24 minutes, turning halfway through, until roast and tender. Set aside.

Make the Lamb Patties: While your veggies are roasting, start the lamb sliders. Combine the lamb meat, garlic, spices, and olive oil in a bowl and gently stir to combine. Don't overmix. Divide this mixture into 8-10 small patties, flattening them just a bit. Heat a skillet over medium heat, and cook the patties in batches, about 2-3 minutes per side. Use a lid over your pan to help contain the heat so the patties cook through in the middle.

Use a meat thermometer to check for doneness. USDA recommends that ground lamb reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees F.

Serve: Assemble your sliders - add a handful of greens to a toasted bun, then add a slider patty, a spoonful of the yogurt sauce, and top with the roasted veggies.  
Store leftover slider patties in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.

Note: The USDA recommends ground lamb reach an internal temperature of 160F.
