Goat Cheese Stuffed Lamb Burgers

Rated as 4.69 out of 5 Stars

"I love making these flavorful lamb burgers stuffed with creamy, delicious goat cheese. I use basil and oregano in mine, but feel free to use your favorite herbs and spices, this recipe is very forgiving. Using fresh rosemary in the goat cheese filling will give the burgers a real Greek flavor. Serve the burgers on hamburger buns or pita bread with tzatziki sauce, or on their own with a Greek salad."

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the onions in the oil until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Gently knead together the softened onions, lamb, egg, bread crumbs, garlic, salt, and pepper. Divide the mixture into 6 parts and roll into balls, then cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Mix together the goat cheese, extra-virgin olive oil, basil, and oregano until well combined; cover and chill for 5 minutes.
  4. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat.
  5. Working with one portion of meat at a time, make an indentation in the center of the ball with your thumb. Fill the indentation with a heaping tablespoon of the goat cheese mixture. Gently pull and form the meat patty around the cheese filling, making a burger-shaped patty. Repeat with each ball of the lamb mixture.
  6. Grill the patties on the preheated grill until no longer pink in the center and well done, about 8 minutes per side.

Brilliant! I used less salt like 'Debbie L' suggested too, and i also made the middle a bidder space so it was easier to spoon in the cheese mix and then fold it over and flatten ready to grill....

I think I would make it again but I would use CONSIDERABLY less salt. The salt was way too much. I thought it might have been a typo and should have used my better judgement and used less. I en...

Delicious and easy. My husband loved them. I used garlic and herb goats cheese and didn't add the fresh herbs to it.

Loved the flavor, but half the cheese melted out since I didn't make sure they were sealed. My sister in law recommended I try freezing the goat cheese in a flat disc shape, then wrapping the me...

Very good! I shaped the burgers in an oval shape so we could wrap them in pitas easier. Note: I did not add as much salt as the recipe called for-- it just seemed like too much. Is it a typo ...

The original recipe was great but I have a few recommendations. Cut back a lil bit on the lamb and add some beef... lamb can be really greasy and the beef can soak up some of the great, making i...

These lamb burgers were delicious and so easy to make. Even my roommate, who lives off mac & cheese, loved them. A sure crowd pleaser and highly recommended!

Oh my gosh! Love this recipe! I'm a huge fan of goat cheese and these have a great flavor.

These were great! Both my hubby and brother-in-law loved them...especially the goat cheese middle. I did cut back on the salt and used herb goat cheese. I served on buns and topped them with tom...

I made it without the cheese and it was still fantastic!
