Equipment

  • Blender
  • BBQ grill

Ingredients

Burgers

  • 1 lb American ground lamb
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 ½ teaspoon onion salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • ½ cup pickled onions
  • 1 cup greens spinach or spring mix optional

Feta Slaw

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cups shredded cabbage
  • ½ cup crumbled feta

Roasted Tomato Aioli

  • 15 ounces can fire roasted tomatoes drained
  • 1 cup mayonaise
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper

Instructions

Burger Patties

  • Combine ground lamb, olive oil, garlic, parsley, black pepper, and onion salt in a large bowl.
  • Mix well with clean hands or a wooden spoon or spatula.
  • For into 4 equal sized patties (about ¼ pound each). Flatten to about ¾ inch thick and press your thumb into the center of each patty. This will prevent some of the shrinking of the patty during cooking.
  • Grill at 400 degrees for about 4 minutes on each side, or until internal temperature is 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

Toppings

  • For the feta slaw, add lemon juice, olive oil, black pepper, and salt to a large bowl. Whisk to combine.
  • Add shredded cabbage and crumbled feta to the dressing and toss to combine.
  • For the tomato aioli, add drained roasted tomatoes, garlic, salt, pepper, and mayo to a blender jar.
  • Blend until smooth.

How To Build The Burger

  • Start with a toasted bun, add greens if desired (like spinach or spring mix), drizzle some roasted tomato aioli, top with your perfectly cooked lamb burger, add feta slaw, and crown it with some pickled onions. Truly a burger made better.
