Ingredients

-1 pound ground lamb

-1/4 cup finely chopped red onion

-2 cloves garlic, minced

-2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

-2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano

-1 teaspoon ground cumin

-1/2 teaspoon ground coriander

-1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

-1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

-1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

-4 hamburger buns

-4 slices of tomato

-4 slices of red onion

-4 slices of feta cheese

-4 lettuce leaves

Directions

1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.

Before you can begin grilling your Mediterranean Lamb Burgers, you must first preheat the grill to medium-high heat.

This is typically done by turning the knobs on the grill to the medium-high setting and allowing the grill to warm up for about 10-15 minutes. Once the grill is preheated, you can begin cooking your burgers.

Be sure to keep the lid of the grill closed as much as possible to ensure that the heat is evenly distributed. You can also use a thermometer to check the temperature of the grill to make sure it is at the desired level.

2. In a medium bowl, combine the ingredients.

To make them, start by combining 1 pound of ground lamb in a medium bowl. Then add in 1/4 cup of chopped fresh parsley, 1/4 cup of crumbled feta cheese, 1/4 cup of diced red onion, 1 teaspoon of minced garlic, 1 teaspoon of ground cumin, 1 teaspoon of dried oregano, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper.

3. Mix the ingredients together until they are well combined.

Use a wooden spoon or your hands to mix the ingredients together until they are well combined. Once the ingredients are blended, form the mixture into 4 equal-sized patties.

Place the patties on a plate, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. After the patties have chilled, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

4. Form the mixture into four equal sized patties.

Next, divide the mixture into four equal portions. Form each portion into a patty, making sure to press down the edges to ensure the patty holds its shape.

Place the patties on a plate or baking sheet and cover with plastic wrap. Allow the patties to rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Once the patties have rested, they are ready to be cooked.

5. Place the patties on the preheated grill and cook for 4-5 minutes per side.

Mix the ingredients together until they are evenly distributed. Form the mixture into four equal-sized patties and set aside. Preheat a grill to medium-high heat and lightly oil the grates.

Place the patties on the preheated grill and cook for 4-5 minutes per side, or until the burgers are cooked through.

6. Serve the burgers on toasted buns with your favorite toppings. Enjoy!

For a more traditional burger experience, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and pickles are also great options. Once the burgers are topped, it’s time to enjoy! Serve the burgers with a side of fries, chips, or a salad for a complete meal.

Mediterranean Lamb Burgers are a delicious way to enjoy a classic burger with a Mediterranean twist.
