Lamb Burgers

We had never tried Lamb before this recipe, but this is a great substitute for the traditional burger.  When you are looking for a different taste, the lamb burger has a much richer flavor than the beef burger.  Original recipe from Martha Stewart.

Lamb Burgers

INGREDIENTS

  •  1 1/2 pounds ground lamb
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons plain yogurt
  • 8 slices country bread (each 1/2 inch thick), toasted, if desired
  • 1 Kirby cucumber, cut lengthwise into ribbons with a vegetable peeler

DIRECTIONS

  1. STEP 1

    In a medium bowl, combine lamb, curry powder, and 2 sliced scallions; season generously with salt and pepper. Mix gently with a fork (do not overmix); form into 4 oval patties to fit on bread (each 1 inch thick).

  2. STEP 2

    In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Season patties with salt and pepper. Cook until browned and just cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes per side (reduce heat if browning too quickly).

  3. STEP 3

    Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix feta, yogurt, and remaining scallion, mashing cheese gently to combine; season with salt and pepper.

  4. STEP 4

    Spread 4 slices of bread with feta mixture; top with cucumbers, lamb patties, and remaining bread.
