It is rare that I can get round lamb so when I see it I snap it up - then I found this recipe however in my haste i suddenly realized that I didn't have an avocado nor sprouts so it was reall an UnCalifornia dreamin": burger. It was delicous even without the sauce. The lemon parsley onion give a great flavor to the lamb. I garnished it with tomato, lettuce and mushrooms on the side. I will make this again with all the trimmings
