Hello sunshine! Well, as summer is well and truly here it would be rude not to get the barbecue out wouldn’t it?! So for this week’s Sunday Budget Dinner we’re heading out to eat al fresco with these incredibly more-ish lamb burgers.
We hot-footed it down to our local Aldi to pick up a couple of packs of lamb mince to make these homemade lamb burgers, and I tell you what, that little extra effort is totally worth it.
This recipe is dead easy, a child could do it. Just mix together lamb mince, herbs and shape into burgers. That’s roughly it. See? Easy.
Of course, you could totally get jazzy with your flavours; whack in your favourite herbs and spices for one of the best barbecues of your life.
These Lamb Burgers took about 15 minutes to prep and just over 10 minutes on the barbecue. The whole family was dead impressed and demanding them again next weekend! Let’s hope the sunshine continues!
- 800g lean mince lamb
- 1/2 medium-sized onion, finely diced
- 8-10 fresh mint leaves, stems removed and roughly chopped
- 1tsp salt
- 1tsp ground black pepper
- 1/2tsp cayenne pepper
- 1tbsp vegetable oil
- Baps to serve
- In a large bowl separate the mince with a fork and add the onions, then mix well.
- Add the mint, salt and peppers, and mix well.
- Grease your clean hands with a touch of vegetable oil and then take a large heaped tablespoon or two of the mixture (depending on how large you want your burgers) and start to form a ball shape in your hands. Press firmly and then flatten the top to create the patty. Smooth around the edges with your hand and place on a clean plate.
- Repeat with the rest of the mixture.
- Refrigerate until your barbecue is hot.
- Barbecue the lamb burgers, turning when starting to brown on the bottom. Give them a good 10 minutes or so, turning a few times to get a nice even brown colour.
- Serve immediately with fresh baps, lettuce and mayo or your favourite sauce.
