I am LOVING this Summer weather and these burgers! It seemed winter this year was a lot longer than usual and Summer is my favorite time of year so I have been itching to start cooking some fresh summer foods. Saturday we grilled some of these burgers for a few friends and they were a huge hit. Lamb is a leaner protein and also a little gamey so the seasoning really enhances the flavors of the burgers, if you can’t find lamb, beef would work just as well. Enjoy!
Makes 6 Burgers
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 12 Minutes
Total Time: 22 Minutes
2 Lbs Ground Lamb
2 tbsp Ground Cumin
1 tbsp Dried Thyme
1 tbsp Dried Oregano
1.5 c Fresh Blueberries
Optional Burger Accompaniments (as seen in photo):
Fried Duck Egg
Moo Goo (Recipe coming soon!)
Preheat a grill to medium-high heat.
In a medium size mixing bowl, mix together lamb and spices. Gently fold in blueberries so you do not mash the berries. Divide meat into 6 equal portions and form into 1/2 inch-thick patties.
Once the grill is hot, place burgers on grill, close the lid and cook for 5 minutes. Flip the burgers and the finished cooking time depends on how well done you want your burger. Grill for 3-4 more minutes for a medium-well burger. Remove burgers from the grill and let rest for 2-3 more minutes.
Additions to make the recipe look like the picture:
While the burgers are cooking, slice 1/4-inch thick slices of pineapple and place them on the grill just to warm and get grill marks. On the stove, fry a duck egg (or regular egg) until it is cooked over easy. Assemble: Lay a piece of lettuce for the base, add a grilled pineapple slice, lamb burger, fried duck egg and the moo goo.
