One of my favorite recipes including mint is a simple one for LAMB BURGERS!
Minted Lamb Burgers
- 1 lb. ground lamb (let come near to room temperature)
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1/2 cup (loosely packed) mint leaves
- Salt to taste
- Pepper to taste
- olive oil
- Finely mince garlic and mint.
- Mix in salt & pepper.
- Add to ground lamb.
- Make 4 patties.
- Brush tops lightly with olive oil.
Broil 6 minutes. Flip. Brush tops with olive oil. Broil 6 more minutes. Serve.
If serving as an entree, add a side of roasted pear filled with a mix of plain yogurt & mint jelly or with sliced cucumbers and a tahini mayo for dipping.
If serving as a sandwich, add a slice of fresh pear or apple and a slice of brie.
