Lamb Burgers

Rated as 4.95 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Thoroughly mix ground lamb, rosemary, thyme, garlic powder, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; shape into 4 patties.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 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 n...

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

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 poi...

Simple easy and burgers were full of flavor. My son will be adding some cheese to the last one, and will be making his own. The simplest Easter meal I have ever made. Will definitely make again.
