Method

1
Preheat the oven to 220°C/Fan 200°C/Gas 7.
2
Make the pickled cucumber by cutting the cucumber in half lengthways then peel into long strips using a vegetable peeler. Place into a small bowl with the rest of the ingredients and mix. Set aside to pickle.
3
Cut the potatoes into wedges. Place them in a large bowl with the olive oil, herbs, season with salt and pepper and mix to combine.
4
Place the potatoes on a large baking tray and cook in the preheated oven for approximately 30 minutes. Turn them over halfway through.
5
While the potatoes are in the oven, make the lamb burgers. Place all the burger ingredients into a large bowl and use your hands to combine them together. Divide the mixture into 12 small balls and form into mini burgers.
6
Fry the mini lamb burgers in a drizzle of olive oil until nicely browned on both sides.
7
Make the tzatziki by mixing all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
8
Once the potatoes are cooked, place them on a large serving plate.

Top with the mini lamb burgers, sliced red onion and crumbled feta cheese.
