Lamb, cherry and feta burgers
Lamb, cherry and feta burgers (makes 3-4 patties)
250 grams minced lamb
150 grams fresh de-stoned cherries, chopped, minced (gently squeeze out some of the juice as you don’t want a mushy burger!)
1 teaspoon fresh tyme
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary (finely chopped with the thyme)
1 large garlic, minced into mush with 1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon chilli powder
½ small red onion, peeled and finely chopped/grated
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
40 – 50 grams of sharp feta cheese, crumbled
In a mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients but try not to mush them too much – you want to try and have some texture to the lamb mince itself.
Shape into patties.
Chill the patties in the fridge or in a cool area for about half an hour.
Dry fry them in a skillet or grill/barbecue for no more than 2 minutes on each side (it depends on how you like your lamb burgers cooked).
