We think a lamb burger might be the unsung hero of the barbecue. After all, when we think of barbecues, the image of beef burgers, sausages, and – nowadays – halloumi, are what tends to spring to mind. But, lamb burgers are (at least in our opinion) waaaay more tasty, especially when loaded up with plenty of salad, sauces and – if it were up to us – feta.
So, if you're on the hunt for something slightly different – or can't get your hands on your usual favourites – why not give lamb a go. We've included an easy recipe for making your own tasty lamb burgers below.

- Special thanks to Florette for sharing this super tasty recipe with us
- Half a bag of Florette Classic Crispy salad
- Lean lam mince, 125 grams
- Breadcrumbs, 30 grams
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- Coriander, finely chopped
- Mint sauce, two tablespoons
- Half a red onion, roughly chopped
- Salt and pepper, for seasoning
- Burger buns
- Your choice of toppings: we love the idea of feta cheese, tomatoes, gherkins, cucumber and plenty of sauce, but you can use whatever you have to hand
1. Put the lamb mince, breadcrumbs, garlic, coriander, mint sauce, onion and seasoning in a food processor. Blend until combined. Tip into a bowl. Using wet hands, shape into 2 burgers and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.
2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan – or place on the barbecue. Fry the burgers for about 3–4 minutes on each side (this will take longer on a barbecue) or until browned and cooked through.
3. Top your burger with your topping preference and enjoy.
