Lamb with mint and feta pesto

At a recent restaurant outing, a friend of ours had a ground lamb burger topped with a fabulous mint and feta pesto. If you'd like to try making it from scratch, here's my recipe for Basic Basil Pesto. Just substitute a cup of mint leaves for one cup of the basil leaves, and process the same way. Add crumbled feta cheese to the portion that you're ready to use.

Another easier method would be to buy already prepared pesto and doctor it up. I tried that, and even the pesto that I buy (which already has some parmesan cheese mixed in) tasted great with the feta and mint added.
