Tasty, Easy, Fun Lamb Burgers

Lamb is one of my favourite meats. It’s rich and flavoursome and there are so many amazing things you can make with it in no time at all. Everything from Sunday roasts to kebabs, curries, shepherd’s pie and so much more. It is the ultimate comfort food yet perfect in pitta with salad as well if you don’t want anything too heavy. It really is so delish.

I’m delighted to team up as a ‘Lambassador’ for the EU Lamb -Tasty, Easy, Fun campaign again this year. I’ve chosen to make their yummy burgers because as you all know, burgers were the first recipe I shared with you and lamb burgers are just as easy to make. The flavours you get in this simple dish are superb.

The lamb burger recipe on is fabulous and the toppings suggested here are roast vegetables and mozzarella. I’m really excited to try these out as well, but for this post, I’ve used a mint yoghurt dressing.

The beauty of burgers is that you can make them using the base recipe and top with whatever you fancy or whatever you have to hand at the time. Be it salad, veg, melted cheese – the possibilities are endless but the results are always mouthwatering. I love these because you can make them up and advance and have them ready to cook. Perfect for after a long day at work, or to have in the fridge for busier week days when the kids have their activities. They go down a treat with everyone. I like serving mine with homemade wedges or chips, cous cous or salad. Amazing!

400g minced lamb
A handful of fresh basil, roughly chopped
2 teaspoons of chopped capers OR chopped pitted black olives
2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
4 burger buns or ciabatta
Toppings of your choice: grilled courgette and aubergine slices, mozzarella and rocket is a fabulous option from the Lamb: Tasty, Easy, Fun website. I used tomato, mixed salad leaves and greek yoghurt mixed with some chopped mint leaves.


Place the minced lamb, garlic, olives or capes, salt and pepper in a bowl and combine well using clean hands.
Divide the mixture into 4 and form into the shape of a burger. Make sure you squeeze as much air as possible from each burger so that they stay intact whilst cooking.
Heat the olive oil in a pan and fry and seal the burgers on each side. Cook on each side for approximately 4-5 minutes, turning occasionally to ensure the burger doesn't stick to the pan.
Toast the burger buns under the grill and assemble the burgers by placing the salad and leaves or grilled vegetables at the bottom and topping with the burger and your choice of sauce and the bun. The beauty of these burgers is that you can play around with different toppings for different flavours, creating something delicious every time. Superb and so simple.
