Ingredients

  • 1 lb Ground Lamb
  • ½ Onion finely minced
  • ½ cup Fresh Parsley chopped
  • 1 tbsp Mint Leaves
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • 2 tsp Cumin
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Dried Parsley
  • ½ tsp Smoked Paprika
  • Garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Jalapeño, finely minced optional

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, add the ingredients to make the lamb burgers. Then, form the mixture into 4 or 5 equal patties. Make an indentation in the center of each burger.
  • Heat an outdoor gas grill or an indoor griddle to medium. Lightly oil the grill grates.
  • Grill the patties for 4-6 minutes per side, turning once midway. (An instant thermometer inserted should read 160°F when done. Adjust the cooking time to reach your desired doneness.)
  • Allow the burgers to rest for 5 minutes. Then, top the burgers with spinach, lettuce, red onions, cucumbers, and homemade dairy-free tzatziki sauce.

Notes

  • The small indentation ​allows the moisture to accumulate in the grove while cooking and keep the burger juicy!
  • To cook these lamb burgers in a skillet: Over medium-high heat, add 1-2 tbsp oil to your cast iron or skillet. Once the skillet is hot, transfer the patties to the skillet and cook for 5-8 minutes on each side, or to your desired doneness.
