The Great Australian Lamb Burger
Australians are known for being fun loving, friendly people with a tradition of hosting “barbies” with grills full of delicious roast meats. We’ve adapted this amazing burger recipe from the Australian Lamb board and are sharing it out with you so you can try it at home. Enjoy and as the Australian’s say, “cheers, mate!”
Place the lamb, garlic and onion in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix together until combined. Form into 6 patties, each will be a little bit more than 5 oz.
Heat the oil in a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat and cook the patties for three minutes on each side, flipping only once. When the patties have cooked for 3 minutes per side, transfer them to a baking sheet and top each patty with a slice of cheese. Place in an oven preheated to 300°F and bake for 5 minutes.
While the cheese is melting, cook the bacon and fry the eggs. Set aside to top the burger.
Remove burgers from oven and assemble burgers in this order: bun – lettuce – tomato – beets – lamb patty with melted cheese – pineapple – ketchup – bacon – fried egg – bun.
Enjoy with some Aussie Shiraz wine and great friends!
