You can’t really beat a burger and fries can you? It’s one of my favourite things to eat in a restaurant, so when I have the urge for one it’s great to be able to make it at home! This lamb burger is really tasty and pretty easy to make! I hope you enjoy it, let me know if you make it I love hearing it!
1-2 sweet potatoes
1 tablespoon of plain flour
Seasoning of choice – chipotle/paprika work nice but anything goes
1 lemon, zest and juice
1 garlic clove, grated
1-2 tbsp mint, finely chopped
2 onions, finely sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
Knob of butter
For the Burger:
500g lamb mince
1/2-1 onion, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic, grated
2 tsp dried mixed herbs
1 tbsp flour
In a bowl mush together all of the burger ingredients (use your hands for best results!)
Form into 4 burger patty shapes, pop on a tray and put into the fridge for 15 minutes.
Heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Peel and slice the potatoes into chip shape. Put into a pan and fill with water and bring to the boil for 5 minutes. Drain the potatoes and toss in the pan with the seasoning, salt and pepper and the plain flour. Put on to a baking tray, drizzle with vegetable oil and pop in the oven.
After about twenty minutes, heat a little oil in a frying pan and when it gets hot add the burgers. You want to fry these for a good 7-10 minutes on each side.
At the same time you start cooking the burgers, add the onions in a small saucepan with some olive oil and a knob of butter and let these crisp up and caramelise – you’ll want stir these every now and again to make sure they don’t stick to the bottom!
For the final bit, pop the yogurt, lemon zest and juice, and mint in a bowl and mix together.
Now its time to make the burger! Slice the bun in half and spoon on some of the yogurt mix. Add a couple of spinach/lettuce leaves if you have any, then add the burger and finally top with some onions (and a little more yogurt if you fancy!)
Serve with some sweet potato fries and enjoy!
Let me know your thoughts!
