I was inspired to make this burger after a recent trip to a brewery bar/restaurant that just opened near us. We seem to eat a lot more lamb in the UK than in the US – so after six years of being here I rather miss it. And when I saw lamb burger on the menu – I just had to have it because I just don't remember seeing it before! It came perfectly cooked, topped with feta, cucumber, mint and red onions.
I just knew I had to recreate this at home!
How to Make Low Carb Greek Lamb Burgers
The first step was the marinated red onions – see my separate recipe for them HERE. They can be used in so many ways – they are definitely worth making!
Form the mixture into patties, and sprinkle them with salt.
Cook the burgers to your liking – I like them cooked to medium with only a tiny bit of pink left in the center. It's still too cold where I live for grilling right now (although these would be AWESOME on the grill) so I cooked them on a grill pan instead.
Serve the lamb burgers topped with crumbled feta cheese, diced cucumber, fresh mint and of course a spoonful of those red onions. The combination of all these flavors and textures is really fantastic!
