Method Prep:25min › Cook:15min › Ready in:40min
Heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a small frying pan over medium heat. Cook and stir the onions in the oil until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
Gently knead together the softened onions, lamb, egg, breadcrumbs, garlic, salt and pepper. Divide the mixture into 6 parts and roll into balls, then cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
Mix together the goat cheese, extra-virgin olive oil, basil and oregano until well combined; cover and chill for 5 minutes.
Preheat a barbecue for medium-high heat.
Working with one portion of meat at a time, make an indentation in the centre of the ball with your thumb. Fill the indentation with a heaping tablespoon of the goat cheese mixture. Gently pull and form a meatball around the cheese filling, then flatten to a burger. Repeat with each ball of the lamb mixture.
Barbecue the burgers on the preheated barbecue until no longer pink in the centre and well done, about 8 minutes per side.
