Mini Greek Lamb Burgers


Comments Print article

Meat & Livestock Australia “lambassador” Sam Kekovich is using his annual Australia Day address to urge people to “teach tots to love lamb” – and these tasty burgers should certainly help. Taking only around 10 minutes to make and the same time to cook, they should also prove popular with adults at your Australia Day barbie.


500g lamb mince
2 spring onions, finely chopped
2 tbsp chopped fresh dill
1 clove crushed garlic
Grated rind and juice one small lemon
1/2 cup fresh white breadcrumbs
1 egg
2 tablespoons fennel seeds

To serve
Pita bread, lettuce, chopped cucumber and roasted capsicum, feta and tzatziki


1 Combine the mince, onions, dill, garlic, lemon rind and juice, breadcrumbs and the egg. Mix lightly, shape into 12 small burgers. Lightly brush the burgers with a little oil and sprinkle with the fennel seeds.

2 Preheat the barbecue plate or pan to moderately high. Add the burgers, lower the heat to moderate. Cook for 4-5 minutes each side, or until cooked. Turn them once only.

3 Serve the burgers with pita, lettuce, cucumber, capsicum, feta and tzatziki.
