These Lamb burgers are absolutely delicious. They are a wonderful variation of traditional hamburgers. So, whether you’re looking for an alternative use of ground lamb or just want a try a different twist on ground beef burgers, this is a wonderful treat.
Here’s my favorite recipe:
Ten Mile Farm Lamb Burgers
8 oz tomato sauce
2 lbs ground lamb
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
½ teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
½ cup finely chopped onion
½ cup Quaker Oats
8 Toasted sesame buns
8 leaves of Romaine Lettuce
Thinly sliced red onion
Makes 8 1/4 lb Burgers
Gently mix all ingredients
Shape them into eight 1/2-inch thick patties.
Broil each side 4-5 minutes for Medium well doneness
Add lettuce, onion slices , ketchup, and a lamb patty to each bun.
There is no need for cheese with these lamb burgers, but if you absolutely think you must have some, I recommend Feta crumbles melted on the patty.
If you want to make perfectly sized patties every time, I recommend this handy tool I picked up at Amazon for about $10. It works great for making patties from 1/4 to 1/2 lb. They fit the bun perfectly too and put that little dimple in the patty that keeps it from swelling into a ball.
I’d love to hear your feedback on this recipe. I know I love it and so does my family, and I am sure yours will too. Once you’ve made the recipe post a review. Shoot, post a picture of your creation while you’re at it. And id you make any changes to the recipe, I’d love to hear about them.
Ann Burrell, over at the food network, has a variation of these where she includes mint and lemon zest. Mint is a traditional condiment used with lamb and her reviews are pretty good. I will warn you that her recipe is much more complicated than this one. If you want to check it out you can find it here.
