Give me lamb burger or give me death

In a menu rut? Maybe a little tired or bored with the same dishes? This one is easy and delicious. Just the ticket to wake up some sleepy taste buds.

The Shopping List

  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • cheese (Kasseri or Provolone)
  • bread (9 to 12 inch baguette or brioche buns)
  • spinach
  • tomato
  • onion (purple)
  • honey mustard dressing or tzatziki sauce)
  • cumin (1/8 teaspoon or less)
  • coriander (1/8 teaspoon or less)
  • garlic (1/8 teaspoon or less)
  • olive oil
  • sea salt
  • ground pepper

Let’s cook!

Form 2 to 3 seasoned lamb patties after sprinkling cumin, coriander, garlic, and pepper on the meat. Grill those bad boys up on the barbecue. When they’re almost done, add a slice of cheese on each and let it melt like it’s a glacier. Slice onion rings and drizzle them with olive oil and a sprinkle of garlic powder. Cook and carmelize these on the grill. With your third set of hands, slice the baguette into three pieces, or take the easy way out and use a brioche roll. On one half of the roll, layer spinach, tomato, onions, honey mustard dressing or tzatziki sauce, salt, pepper, and finally the cheese topped lamb burger. Top with the other half of roll, or cut down on carbs by going open-face.


Serving suggestions / Presentation

Serve with some grilled sliced potatoes and a crisp green salad or grilled vegetables. Potatoes or vegetables are easy…just drizzle some olive oil, pepper, and garlic powder and grill till done on a sheet of release foil (by grillin’ go to).!

Change it up….Sometimes you may want to substitute

You select the kind of bread or roll, cheese, and dressing you like. A kasseri cheese is delicious as is a tzatziki sauce. For the potatoes and vegetables select seasoning such as Rosemary or a Spanish paprika.

Looking for that special dish? Make them small to fit on those brown and serve rolls and serve lamb sliders!
