Recipe - Lamb Burgers with Feta and Basil Sauce
These lamb burgers are as good as lamb burgers come but the real star in this recipe is the sauce.
I matched it with lamb burgers this time but it could work with beef burgers, chops or why not as a different condiment for your Sunday roast?
It's dead simple to make and you'll be royally rewarded for your efforts.
Serving lamb burgers in pita pockets feels more right than serving them in buns for some reason so I go with that.
Enough chatting, over to the recipe...
Ingredients (makes about six burgers)
500g lamb mince
1 red onion, finely diced
1 garlic clove, finely diced
1 tbsp curry powder
Feta and Basil Sauce
200g feta cheese
25g fresh basil leaves
2 tbsp olive oil
Mix all the ingredients for the lamb burgers in a bowl. Make the mince mixture into six even patties. Fry, grill or barbecue the patties until done to your liking.
In the meantime put the feta, basil leaves and olive oil into a food processor and run until you got a nice even texture.
Serve the patties in pita pockets with the greens and the feta and basil sauce.
