Lamb Patties with a Garlic and Mint Yogurt Sauce

Ground lamb patties are what I call quick fixings in my house. They take 20 minutes from start to finish. I love the fresh herbs in this recipe, particularly the fresh mint. It goes so well with the lamb. Nutritionist Justice De La Torre gave me the recipe for these lamb patties, and they have become a staple in our house.  I hope these lamb patties will become a staple in your house as well. The best part about these lamb patties is that people who try them just assume they’re beef. These lamb patties are a great way to introduce lamb to your little ones.

1 lbs of ground lamb
