I like making mini versions of things as finger food. No exception here. I think ground lamb is one of the greatest bargains out there because the meat is so flavorful and juicy. The point of the sauce is to be tangy and refreshing to contrast with the rich flavors of the lamb burgers.
Preheat the oven to 500°F.
Make the burgers: Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and work together until they are fully incorporated.
Roll a tablespoon of the mixture into a 3-inch ball and then flatten into a round burger about ½ inch thick.
Place the mini burgers on a nonstick baking sheet and bake about 7 minutes, until evenly and well browned.
Make the sauce: Stir together the yogurt, lemon juice, and zest in a small bowl. Season to taste with a couple of pinches of salt
Cut the brioche into ½-inch slices, then use a small glass to cut as many circles as possible, about 3 inches in diameter, from each slice.
Place the bread circles on a baking sheet. When the burgers come out of the oven, slip the bread in for just a couple of minutes to toast lightly. Watch the bread carefully, or else it will get too dark very quickly.
Place the mini burgers on top of the cut brioche. Top with a dollop of the lemon yogurt and garnish with a good pinch of lemon zest.
