Lamb Burgers

Hello friends

Yesterday I went into Aldi and found some mince lamb at half price, bargain, so I got one packet (short on funds other wise I would have got more).
I used to use a lot of minced lamb in place of beef as I don't eat beef. I would make Bolognaise, Lasagna, Chilli. Now I use minced turkey or pork instead as they're cheaper and L doesn't like the taste of red meats. Poor M who loves beef only gets it occasionally, if it has a yellow sticker on it or a burger.

Anyway back to the minced lamb. I Thought I would show you what I did with it.
I mixed the lamb with a sachet of Garden Mint. You could add some onions and garlic if you like. I have a problem digesting onions so I didn't use them.
After mixing it by hand I made 3 burgers, using my burger press, and 6 things on sticks for our Boxing Day buffet. I don't know what to call them, they're a bit like kofters then flattened. 
I might even make a mint dip to go with them (my mouth is watering at the thought). 
 
It's a nice dry and breezy day so off to hang the washing out.

  1. Hi Carol, Thanks for your email regarding the snowflake swap! I'm just having a browse of your lovely blog. Those minty lamb thingies on sticks are a great idea and sound very simple to make. Maggie xx
