O.k. It’s nearly 6 pm and you haven’t even thought about supper.
You’re thinking “Hmm, pizza? Maybe burgers?”
That’s me most nights during the grazing season!
But we both know, eating out isn’t an option.
It’s expensive and you can make it better at home.
Not to mention, you’re going to have that BLAH feeling afterwards if you do eat out. I know I always do.
So what can you do?
GRAB SOME LAMB!
Lamb burgers make THE BEST Summer grilling EVER! And it's quick, healthy and delicious. You’ll have no guilt eating these burgers! And lots of energy and no “Blah”!
Here are 3 DELICIOUS, HEALTHY lamb burger recipes you can make for Supper NOW!
Lamb Burger #1: Keep-It-Simple Lamb Burgers
No fuss here! Just lamb and the grill. Simple and delicious!
Using 1 lb of ground lamb for every 4 people, divide the lamb into even portions, approximately ¼ lb each, and shape into patties.
Grill on medium high heat for 5-7 minutes per side, or until desired doneness.
Serve on hamburger buns with your favorite toppings! Lettuce, tomato, red onion, mustard, and ketchup!
It’s the quintessential summer burger with lamb instead of beef! And it's NOT your standard Quarter Pounder!
Lamb Burger #2: Rosemary Lamb Burgers*
This lamb burger explodes with flavor! Rosemary, tangy lemon mayo, & sweet grilled onion make for a restaurant quality burger you can’t resist.
For the Tangy Lemon Mayo:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons snipped fresh chives
Freshly ground black pepper
In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, lemon zest and juice, garlic clove, and chives. Season with pepper. Set aside while you make the burgers.

Lamb Burger # 3: Spicy Lamb Burgers w/Feta
These burgers are one of our favorites! The warmth of the spices and the salty feta combine to make the perfect lamb burger! These can be served in warm pitas (although a standard bun does just fine!) with thick slices of fresh tomato, red onion, and lettuce or fresh spinach.
