I bought a selection of lamb cuts from a CSA and got several one-pound packages of ground lamb. I made the last one tonight, and it was the best of all. Top them with Dijon mayo, tomato slices, and baby greens.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

    Advertisement
  • Thoroughly mix ground lamb, rosemary, thyme, garlic powder, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; shape into 4 patties.

  • Cook the burgers until they are beginning to firm and are hot and slightly pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Alternately, you can cook the burgers to your desired degree of doneness. Rest burgers while assembling toppings.

  • Mix mayonnaise and mustard together in a small bowl; spread 1 tablespoon of the mixture onto one side of each bun. Put a burger onto each bun and top with tomato and greens. Sandwich with remaining bun half to serve.

I’m in love with these burgers. I had to use an oven so I had to set it for 325 degrees and baked them for 40 minutes to make them done. I had a friend over to have some and he said they’re delicious. I would not bake at a higher temperature or they might dry out. Read More

I made these tonight, but not as burgers -- just broiled and served without the sauce (added mint jelly on the side, as I've been eating lamb since I was little). The seasoning was very good. It's worth mentioning though that the same temperature for ground lamb is 160 -- not 140. Read More

I thought the recipe might have too much of the herbs, but it was so tasty - just perfect. We don’t eat many fatty foods (seniors tummies), so my husband suggested we do half lamb half turkey next time, which I’ll try. But if you love lamb this is a great recipe without cooking and paying for a whole leg. Read More

I made this, and it turned out great! My lamb patties were pre-made but I seasoned them with Italian seasoning (rosemary, thyme, oregano, etc), Gaelic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. I used Roman tomatoes abs fresh spinach. The Mayo I used to make the sauce had olive oil and avocado in it. I mixed that with Dijon mustard and a little miracle whip. I also added steak sauce and ketchup. Cooked to perfection Read More

Delicious! I didn’t make the mayo/mustard sauce. Burgers were great on their own. Read More

Longtime member with a recipe or two on here myself. I had fresh thyme and fresh rosemary so I skipped usedry herbs.NOTE: If your ground lamb is good quality mixing in ground beef misses the point of eating lamb. I followed the recipe but added one tsp of dry sherry plus one tsp of white wine vinegar. Moist,juicy and delicious. I put these on a brioche bun with garlic butter spread on the bun then I toasted the bun on the charcoal grill above the grilling burgers. Let them set for about five minutes then built the burger with a slice of tomato,feta,dijon-mayo and field greens. WOW Read More

I made this tonight for dinner. It was a big hit! Flavorful, juicy and the dijon mayo went perfectly. I added raw red onion to the topping and used a Brioche Bun. Delicious gourmet burger! Read More

This was awesome.... I made 3 burgers out of 1 lb of meat and would adjust the recipe for that change. Quarter-pound burgers are too tiny for most rolls. This was a gourmet burger recipe, for sure! Read More
