  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  • 2 Pat each biscuit into 6-inch round; lightly brush tops with egg white. Place 1 biscuit round, egg-washed side down, on top of second biscuit round. Using fork, crimp edges to seal. Place on cookie sheet, reshaping into round as needed. Repeat with remaining biscuits.
  • 3 Bake 15 to 19 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack; cool 5 minutes.
  • 4 Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix all cucumber sauce ingredients. Cover; refrigerate until serving time.
  • 5 In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook lamb, onion and 2 cloves garlic in oil, stirring frequently, until lamb is thoroughly cooked; drain, if desired. Stir in oregano, cumin, 1/2 teaspoon salt and the pepper; remove from heat. Stir in cheese.
  • 6 Cut each biscuit round in half. Using small serrated knife, carefully open up pocket, being careful not to cut crimped edge. Spoon about 1/4 cup filling into each pocket; top with lettuce and tomatoes. Spoon about 2 tablespoons cucumber sauce over each pocket.
