Mint Lamb Burger

Once you start making your own burgers, you’ll never look back. They’re bound to become a family favourite. These minty lamb burgers taste great whether you’re making them for a barbeque, or an every day meal. The mint adds a touch of freshness without overpowering, and the lamb mince keeps a wonderfully meaty texture. Yum.




Serves: 4
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 450g lean lamb shoulder mince
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 bunch of mint leaves, finely chopped

  • 1 tbsp oil
To serve:
  • Beef tomato, sliced
  • Buffalo Mozzarella cheese, sliced

Instructions

1. Place the lamb mince, onion, garlic and mint leaves in a large mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix in the breadcrumbs.
