If you have never prepared lamb burgers, I highly recommend you try this recipe. Serve on hamburger buns with lots of mango chutney and cream cheese. Also good with lettuce, tomato and red onion.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.

  • Mix the lamb, egg, oregano, sherry, vinegar, red pepper flakes, garlic, green onions, mint, cilantro, bread crumbs, salt, and pepper together in a mixing bowl with your hands until evenly blended. Form into five patties.

  • Cook on the preheated grill until the burgers are cooked to your desired degree of doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Serve on buns.

These were really good! I did make one change though not a huge one. Instead of using dried oregano I used fresh since mine is growing so fast in my garden. I served with mango chutney and cream cheese with sliced red onion - fabulous! My husband and son both loved them and said I can make them anytime. Read More

Excellent burgers, we loved them! I did make a change though by making and then topping the burgers with homemade greek tzatki. The slightly gamey taste of the lamb worked well with tzatki (made w/fat free greek yogurt)and allowed to skip a fattening condiment like mayo. We added a greek side salad and glasses of sangria for a great friday night meal. Would definetely make again. Read More

These were good but I made a few changes. I added Italian seasoning instead of all the separate herbs. I added mint sauce instead of fresh mint and served on wholemeal rolls with garlic mayo. Really tasty and very moist. Read More

This recipe is just AMAZING! Very very easy to make and my kids love it! My husband and I took the suggestion of having Syrah with them and it was a very delicious pairing...my son made shoestring french fries and added a little fresh rosemary and sea salt to them - wow what a meal! Read More

Great seasonings though I did tweak the meat and omitted the egg/breadcrumbs. I did half beef and half lamb so I wouldn't have to use the egg/breadcrumbs and make it juicier. Other than that, this is a keeper! Read More

these were really good i did not have some of the intredients like cilantro fresh mint and white wine vinegair and no grill or barbeque. I cooked in some ghee in cast iron pan and everyone including the kids loved them. served them with sliced tomatoes and onions. Also fried some onions until soft and brown in the leftoever fat and topped the lambergers. Will be making again with missing ingredients added! Read More
