    About this recipe: A wonderful recipe for lamb burgers. Minced lamb is combined with egg, oregano, sherry, vinegar, chillies, garlic, spring onions, mint, coriander and breadcrumbs, before being barbecued to perfection.

    Makes: 5 burgers

    • 560g minced lamb
    • 1 egg
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1 teaspoon dry sherry
    • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
    • 1/2 teaspoon crushed chillies

    Prep:25min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Preheat an outdoor barbecue for medium-high heat and lightly oil the cooking grate.
    2. Mix the lamb, egg, oregano, sherry, vinegar, crushed chillies, garlic, spring onions, mint, coriander, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper together in a mixing bowl with your hands until evenly blended. Form into five burgers.
    3. Cook on the preheated barbecue until the burgers are cooked to your desired degree of doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the centre should read 70 degrees C. Serve in the burger buns.

    This was a easy recipe that produced delicious burgers. I did not have any coriander, sherry or dry breadcrumbs. I added 1/2 slice of 50/50 bread (made into breadcrumbs). I did not have enough fresh mint as have been using my plant quite a bit recently, so added 1/2 teaspoon of dried. Next time I would add 1 teaspoon of the dried mint if fresh not available.  -  03 Jun 2013


    These were really good! I did make one change, though not a huge one. Instead of using dried oregano, I used fresh since mine is growing so fast in my garden. I served with mango chutney and cream cheese, with sliced red onion - fabulous! My husband and son both loved them and said I can make them anytime.  -  14 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent burgers, we loved them! I did make a change though by making and then topping the burgers with homemade greek tzatki. The slightly gamey taste of the lamb worked well with tzatki (made w/fat free greek yogurt)and allowed to skip a fattening condiment like mayo. We added a greek side salad and glasses of sangria for a great friday night meal. Would definetely make again.  -  29 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
