This week’s recipe is a good one…. Lamb Burgers!
I decided to use lamb because it’s a much healthier then beef while still providing all the rich flavors and texture of a traditional burger. Another healthy alternative to accompany your lamb burger are baked sweet potato fries. Yummy!
1 pound ground lamb
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves
2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
6 cloves garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon Himalayan Pink salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
4 Brioche Buns
Preheat grill or pan for medium heat.
Place the lamb in a large bowl, and mix with mint, rosemary, oregano, and garlic. Season with spices both dry and fresh, mix well then shape them into 4 patties.
Add some oil to your pan or grill and cook your burgers for about 5 minutes on each side, or until well done.
Heat the Brioche bun briefly on the grill. Serve burgers on bun with chunky feta N’cucumber taziki sauce.
