ACE! So good! I didn`t saute my onions, garlic or ginger. I added them raw to my food processor till they where very finely minced. I did buy a cut from the shoulder that i cut into cubes, froze then pulsed in my food processor with the onion mixture. Grilled about 3-4 minute per side. I placed the burger on a onion bun (no bun for gluten free) with lettuce and tomato. Topped the burger with crumbled goat cheese and thin sliced cucumbers. No need for ketchup. Thanks. Made for my team the lively lemon lovelies. ZWT #8 Australia challenge. Cheers Jubes. Oh I did serve with Kumara (Sweet Potato) and Ginger Mash
These were great and so quick and easy to put together.. I doubled the recipe as I made patties for our dinner served over a green salad with feta cheese, large garlic stuffed olives and red onion along with a drizzle of balsamic dressing. I then made meatballs with the rest of the mixture and have frozen them so I can do what mummamills suggested and make a curry with them, as soon as I read her review I thought that sounded so good to do.. The lamb patties by themselves were delicious though and were thoroughly enjoyed by us all and we all agreed on the 5 stars, does not happen often in our house.. I think these would be great done any way be it a bbq or made smaller for finger foods with a dipping sauce.. We loved them paired with salad perfect for us and really looking forward to trying them in a curry.. Thanks for posting such a winner of a recipe for us Jubes..
These are great! and very easy. I didnt have enough mint for my liking, but my mint was very sad after 3 weeks of being away :)
The only lamb mince I could get was very coarse and fatty, next time I think I will whizz up my own. I reckon this would be wonderfull in a curry! thanks Jubes . made for Aussie swap sept 2011
