makes 4 good sized burgers
400g minced lamb
1 small onion
Handfull fresh mint leaves
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1.5 teaspoon oregano
1.5 teaspoon dried mint
1/2 teaspoon cumin
Juice 1/2 lemon
2 teaspoon olive oil
1 block halloumi cheese
170g Greek yoghurt (or 1 small tub)
teaspoon dried mint
2 tablespoon grated cucumber - water squeezed out
1 large tomatoes sliced
1 – Using a processor chop the onion and garlic super fine, if you dont have one then grate them into the minced lamb.
2 - Add the herbs and spices along with the lemon juice and olive oil and season generously
3 – Using your hands mix up the mixture so everything is very well incorporated.
4 – The burgers can be put on the BBQ, grilled or griddled in a pan.
Now - for the toppings!
5 - Mix the Greek yoghurt with the dried mint, and cucumber
6 – Slice the halloumi into even sized slices and grill or fry them - make sure you do this last!
7 - enjoy the burgers in burger buns or on flat-breads with a dollop of the Tzatziki yogurt mix, the grilled halloumi, and some fresh salad.
Feta - Feta cheese works great instead of halloumi too, just crumble it right into of the burger and you're good to go!
Lets be honest - these are going to taste delicious whatever toppings you choose!
