This Lamb Burgers recipe is perfect if you're looking for a tasty alternative to beef burgers. The flavors of kofta inspire the lamb burgers. This popular Middle Eastern dish contains ground lamb mixed with cumin, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, paprika, ginger, garlic, onions, mint, and parsley. The spiced lamb is then formed onto wooden skewers and cooked.
Here you'll be getting a twist on this traditional dish by forming the spiced ground lamb into mouthwatering burger patties and cooking them in a skillet to add some crispy textures to the burgers. The burgers come together onto toasted burger buns—this recipe used whole wheat burger buns to calculate the nutritional values. However, you can use gluten-free burger buns, whole wheat burger buns, or anything you desire.
A refreshing homemade tzatziki sauce is whipped together using cucumber, Greek yogurt, garlic, and mint, to add some creamy and cooling effects to the lamb burgers. Also added is Harrisa sauce for some extra zest and heat. It's sold in jars made from bell peppers, chilies, tomatoes, garlic, and vinegar. Quick Pickled Red Onions and crunchy lettuce finish these incredible and juicy lamb burgers.
