Minted Lamb Burgers

Minted Lamb Burgers

Serves 6


  • 500g/1lb Scotch Lamb mince

  • 60ml/4tbsp chopped fresh mint

  • 1 clove garlic, crushed to a paste

  • 50g/2oz fresh breadcrumbs

  • 1 egg yolk

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 6 burger buns

  • Sliced tomato and lettuce to serve

Cooking Method

  1. Place the lamb in a bowl, add the mint, garlic, breadcrumbs, egg yolk, a little salt and plenty of ground black pepper.
  2. Using clean hands, work the mixture together, then divide it into six portions
  3. Use your hands to shape each portion into a neat burger shape about 8cm (3 ¾ in) wide. Place on a plate and chill for at least 20 mins – this lets them firm up.
  4. Heat a non-stick frying or griddle pan or barbecue until hot. Add the burgers and cook for 10-12mins, turning occasionally until the lamb is lightly charred but cooked through – there should be not pink juices coming out when tested.
  5. Split the burger buns then lightly toast each one on the inside.

Serving suggestions

Serve the burgers in the toasted bun with salad. These taste great served with chunky chips.
