Lamb Burgers with Herbal Mayo Sauce

There’s nothing like a good burger with a side of fries to make you feel happy. Although our favorite fast food chains offer tasty burgers at a low price, I wonder how healthy they are for my family. I also don’t trust the frozen burger patties found at the supermarket. So I prefer to make my own burgers which I believe are healthier. Also, I use fusion flavors to make them tastier.

Ingredients

For the burger patties:

  • Ground lamb – 500g
  • Red onion – 1 small finely chopped
  • Garlic – 3 cloves minced
  • Carrot – 1 large finely chopped
  • Green bell pepper – 1/2 finely chopped
  • Parseley – 25g finely chopped
  • Italian dry herb seasoning – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Paprika powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Worcestershire sauce – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Chinese five spice – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Eggs – 1 large beaten
  • Breadcrumbs – 3 tablespoons (panko preffered)
  • Salt and black pepper powder to taste

For the herbal mayo sauce:

  • Mayonnaise – 1/2 cup
  • Garlic – 1 clove minced
  • Parseley – 1 tablespoon chopped
  • Dill – 1 tablespoon chopped
  • Lemon juice – 1 tablespoon
  • Salt and pepper powder to taste

Method

  1. To make the burger patties, mix all the ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Shape the mixture into about 10 to 12 patties depending on preference.
  3. Grill the patties 4 to 5 minutes per side depending on whether you like it medium or well done.
  4. For the mayo sauce, mix all the ingredients together.
  5. Butter the insides of the burger buns and grill until slightly brown and crispy.
  6. Serve the burger topped with onions, tomatoes and greens (as preffered) with the herbal mayo sauce and a side of oven chips.
