Greek Lamb burgers

Greek lamb burger

This awesome burger is made with minced lamb infused with a concoction of herbs and spices and then grilled to perfection. Served on a bun with mixed greens, fresh tomato slices, red onion rings, kalamata olives, sprinkled with feta cheese and drizzled with tzatziki sauce - all the Greek flavors in one package. Burger never tasted better. Serve it with fries or fresh Greek salad for a complete meal. A MUST try this BBQ season.

Lamb Burgers
Ingredients: (for 4 burgers)

1 lb mince mutton
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 red onion, chopped fine
1 tbsp feta cheese
1 tbsp lime juice
1/2 tsp lime zest
1/2 tsp dry mint
Handful fresh coriander, chopped fine
1 tsp red pepper flakes (adjust as per your spice quotient)
2 walnuts, crushed roughly
2 tbsp Greek seasoning (recipe here)
Salt to taste
  1. Mix all the ingredients together and divide into four equal parts. 
  2. Shape into round patties. 
  3. Place in a single layer and cover. Refrigerate for 1/2 hour before cooking. 
  4. Grill for 7-8 minutes per side till cooked through and golden on both sides. 
  5. For a Vegetarian option substitute mince lamb with paneer, tofu or boiled potato or a combination of these. I have also tried boiled soy granules mixed with boiled potato. Just keep the flavoring same. You can pan fry or grill these. Comes out great.

To serve
4 burger buns (I used rustic kaiser buns)
Red onion rings
Tomato slices
Mixed greens(spinach, arugula, etc)
Kalamata olives
Feta cheese
Tzatziki sauce(recipe here)
  1. To serve warm the bun and place the leafy greens at the bottom. 
  2. Top with the lamb burger followed by sliced tomatoes and onion rings. 
  3. Drizzle tzatziki generously and sprinkle with feta. 
  4. Top with some olives and enjoy your feast. Burger never tasted sooo good.
