Lamb Burgers, Greek Style

No comments:

Saturday's are all about indulging on good food with good company, maybe spending a day at the museums or at the markets or perhaps having a long stomp in the countryside. 

Once you are exhausted from a morning of culture or if you're in need of warming up after a long walk, these burgers are bound to impress, fill any empty tummies and are super easy to do, especially if you have a handy burger press; I am trying out Leukue's. Not only did it help with the shape, it was great for portion control, and of course gave a pretty impressive homemade burger. Sold!

I chose lamb for these burgers and stuffed them with halloumi for a Greek feel (everyone knows my love affair for Greece, and these definitely took my tastebuds back!)

For 4 hearty burgers you will need...

600g lamb mince 
4 Brioche buns 
1 egg
1/2 cup of bread crumbs 
A good shake of salt and pepper 
1 pack of baby courgettes 
1 onion finely chopped 
1 pack halloumi
Spicy relish

Get the best quality brioche buns you can find, these really make your burgers feel extra special. Buy them in any supermarket or if you are feeling really adventurous you can make them! 

The burgers are pretty large so lightly fried courgettes go well. With a good zing of lemon juice and a slug of olive oil they make a great side.  

First mix up your mince, egg, breadcrumbs and salt and pepper and then using a press or by hand shape your burgers...

Once all burger mince has been squished, make an indent into your burgers using the other side of the press, and stuff with your chopped halloumi. 

Cover with more mince and place on a baking sheet and pop them in the oven for around 20 mins. 

Slice up your baby courgettes and lightly fry them until they are nice and golden. Set to one side. 

Chop your onion and again fry up until golden and crispy. 

You can now get to work assembling the rest of your burger fillings. I like to melt cheese onto the base of my burgers, it adds that little bit extra to this pretty indulgent meal and of course you can never have too much of the stuff!

Once your burgers are cooked...stack 'em high!

 Burgers, stuffed or unstuffed with crispy fried onions, some fresh cos lettuce for some colour, some spicy relish and topped with the other half of your toasted brioche bun.

Delicious, cheesy and simple for a lavish Saturday lunch!
