Beefy Lamb Burgers.

I have never made lamb before. I have eaten it and not really liked it, so I have not found a good reason to make it myself. However, last summer we had some lamb burgers at a family friend’s that the hubs really liked and he has been asking me to try and make some ever since. I finally got up the motivation, and courage I guess, to make some lamb burgers. This one was fun because it was the first time I cooked lamb, I wrote the recipe, and we had friends over for a Portland Timbers viewing party to try my untested first attempt at cooking lamb! Haha! BUT…it worked and so I will share it with you to try as well.

Beefy Lamb Burgers. This recipe makes four 1/4 lb burgers.


1/2 lb lean ground lamb

1/2 lb 5% fat ground beef

1 clove of garlic

1/4 t cumin

1/4 t kosher salt

1/2 t fresh cracked back pepper

1 T basil, finely chopped

4 t soft goat cheese


Mix all ingredients, except cheese, together in a large bowl. Divide into four equal parts. Roll each part into a ball and then make a well in the middle. Place one teaspoon of cheese in each well. Close up the well and gently form into a patty.

Preheat grill to 400-450 degrees. Cook burgers for 5 minutes on each side and remove from grill. Serve on your favorite bun, with your favorite fixins!
