Lamb burgers

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites


Make your own apricot and mint lamb burgers for the barbecue or grill.

These burgers are so much more tastier than what you can buy in the shops. If you wish, you can double the mix and freeze half the patties once you’ve shaped them and before cooking them.

Makes 6 large burgers, or 10-12 smaller ones.
