Servings: 2   |   Prep Time: 20 minutes

2/3 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 English cucumber, seeds scooped out, skin peeled off, and cut into chunky half moons
1/4 cup roughly chopped mint leaves
1 bunch roughly chopped chives (about 1/3 cup), divided
3 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh oregano (divided)
3 medium cloves garlic, minced (about 1 tablespoon)
2 teaspoons fresh juice from 1 lemon
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
14 ounces ground lamb
A drizzle of olive oil
2 warm pitas

1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Combine yogurt, cucumber, mint, 3 tablespoons chives, 1 tablespoon chopped oregano, 1 teaspoon garlic, and lemon juice in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
2. In a large bowl, gently combine the lamb, remaining 2 teaspoons garlic,remaining chives, remaining oregano leaves, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Form the mixture into two burgers, and drizzle on both sides with olive oil. Season liberally with salt. Preheat a coal or gas grill to high heat. Alternatively, rub a grill pan with olive oil and preheat over medium-high heat until lightly smoking. Grill burgers, turning occasionally, until an instant read thermometer inserted into the center registers 125 to 130 F for medium rare, or 135 to 140 F for medium, 5 to 9 minutes. Transfer to a large plate and tent with foil for 3 minutes
3. Stuff burgers in pita and serve with tzatziki.
