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.

5 burgers


  • 1 ¼ pounds ground lamb

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1 teaspoon dry sherry

  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar

  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ cup chopped green onions

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint, or to taste

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • 2 tablespoons dry bread crumbs

  • teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 5 hamburger buns


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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
