Sometimes you just need a burger! Considering the fact that Americans consume nearly 50 billion burgers a year, I am assuming most people need more than one! Although beef burgers are great, it’s nice every once in awhile to switch meats up a bit. This lamb burger provides the perfect switch.
Prep time: 7-10 minutes
Cook time: 7-10 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes
1lb of ground lamb
1/2 cup of mint, chopped finely
1/4 cup of flat leaf parsley chopped finely
Sea Salt & Black pepper to taste
Ingredients for Yogurt Cucumber Sauce
1/2 cup of yogurt
1 large clove of garlic grated
1/4 cup of organic Persian cucumber cubed
3 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 Tablespoon of finely minced shallot
1 tablespoon of mint finely chopped
Sea salt to taste
Directions: add all the ingredients for the yogurt sauce to a medium sized bowl, mix well and set aside.
In a large bowl add the ingredients for the burger, mix with your hands to incorporate all of the ingredients, and then form patties.
Heat a cast iron skillet, then add the burgers. Cook each burger without turning them, for 4-6 minutes on each side.
Serve these on buns with the cucumber sauce or go to my YouTube channel and get my recipe for Creamy herb feta cheese spread.
Or skip the bun and use lettuce as a low carb option.
