As I write this post, my mouth is watering. This best lamb burger recipe is so juicy, flavorful, and perfect. One of those licks your fingers because you don’t want to waste that on the napkin kind of meal. You can also use ground turkey or ground beef for this recipe if you don’t want the lamb’s gamey taste.
The Best Lamb Burger RecipePrint Recipe
- 1.5 pounds ground lamb
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon Zoe’s ‘Spice of Life’
- 1/4 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
- 6 tablespoons goat cheese
- 2 tablespoons avocado oil
- 1 medium white onion
- 3 medium sweet potatoes
- ground pepper
- Whole wheat burger buns (you can sub lettuce bun or gluten-free bun if you prefer)
1. Start by heating the oven to 400 degrees.
2. Next, slice up the sweet potatoes to make sweet potato fries. I don’t peel my potatoes, I’ve done them both ways, and I don’t think it makes a difference at all when they are peeled. It takes way too much time to peel those potatoes. Ain’t nobody got time for that! Once they are sliced, line your baking sheet with parchment paper. Toss the fries in some oil (I used avocado oil, you can use olive oil and olive oil spray, coconut oil, etc.), then sprinkle them with some seasoning. This can be as simple as ground pepper. I used paprika, garlic powder, and ground pepper. I don’t add salt until they are done baking. Put the fries in the oven. They will take about 45 minutes to get nice and crispy.
3. Now start up your grill. Combine the ground lamb and the seasonings, mix just enough to combine, then form the meat into 4 burger patties.
4. Once you have formed your burgers, slice the onion so we can get that cooking. Add 1 tablespoon of avocado oil to a frying pan on medium heat, then add in the onions. We want to keep this at medium heat, so we don’t burn the onions. We want them to cook slow and long to really get them caramelized and beautiful. These will take 10-15 minutes to really get brown & beautiful.
5. Get the burgers on the grill. We cooked these for 10-12 minutes. You don’t want to overdo them. Once the burgers and fries are done, you plate and eat!
We used whole wheat buns. Start with the burger, then add the goat cheese (about 1.5 tablespoons per burger), then add the onions! We didn’t add anything else to ours, and it was perfect. If you really like ketchup, you could always add that, but I don’t think you need it! If you have gluten restrictions, you can always use gluten-free buns, go bun free, or make a lettuce bun.
I had some leftover white sauce from our hibachi we made earlier in the week. I used this to dip my fries in. It was delicious! I hope you guys enjoy these burgers as much as we did, I would love to hear your thoughts and any variations you tried!
