  1. Lamb: Place all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Season well and shape into 4 large patties. Heat a dash of oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat (or heat a barbecue plate until hot) and place the patties on. Cook for 16-18 minutes, turning and cooking the sides as well until they are cooked through.
  2. To serve: Mix together the yoghurt and mint. Soften pitas as per packet instructions or toast. Place salad leaves moistened with a little yoghurt and mint dressing into the pita, follow with the beef patty and a scattering of blue cheese. Serve with remaining yoghurt and mint dressing in a small bowl.
