Form the mixture into eight 3-inch oval patties, about 1-½ inches thick, with moistened hands, and on the lightly oiled rack of a broiler pan broil the patties under a preheated broiler about 4 inches from the heat for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until the lamb is just cooked through.

Divide the patties between 2 plates lined with romaine and serve them with the yogurt sauce and the pita loaves.
