Lamb Burger

When people say “Aussie Burger”, two burgers comes to my mind, one is a classic beef burger, but with grilled pineapples & pickled beets, or a burger with a lamb patty, plus egg & bacon. In this case, we are making a good old lamb burger, since grilled pineapple and beets really shouldn’t go on a proper burger.

You’ll need:

  • 3/4 lbs ground lamb (80% lean)
  • 1/4 sweet onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 slice goat cheese (or any soft cheese)
  • 4 slice bacon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tbsp mayo
  • 1/2 tbsp relish
  • some lettuce
  • 2 kaiser rolls, split (or hamburger buns)

How to make this:

  1. The ground lamb should be about 80% lean, finely mince the onion and garlic, then mix the meat, onion, garlic, salt and ground black pepper. Form them into 2 patties and place them in the fridge and let is set for 20 min
  2. Place the bacon in the oven and roast at 175C or 350F degrees for 20 min or until it turns crisp. Save the bacon grease, then fried 2 egg in a pan over medium heat
  3. In the same pan, turn the heat up to medium-high, pan sear the patty for about 6-7 min each side. You can also cook the patty on a medium heated grill for about 5 min each side
  4. Mix the ketchup, mayo & relish into a sauce, slice and toast the kaiser rolls, spread on the sauce, place the lettuce, patty, bacon & egg
