Burgers are something which I rarely make because of hassle. Burgers are not something which I consume that often anyway more so if I am out. They are rarely something which we will purchase to cook at home unless it is the summer and we are having a BBQ. However, recently when I was still subscribed to Hello Fresh I found a recipe for Lamb Passanda burgers. Again, lamb is a meat which I avoid really as I find it very fatty or it can be. After cooking the lamb passanda burgers for sure I knew that this is a recipe which I will be recreating. Of course, this is one when the weather picks up and you have BBQ’s you could consume. Or like me when you fancy a semi cheat meal at home.
Ingredient – Serves 2
15g Nigella Seeds
2 Garlic Cloves
150g Greek Yoghurt
30g Passanda Spice Blend
1 Bunch Mint
250g Lamb Mince
2 Burger Buns
Baking Tray, Frying Pan , Bowl and Plate
- Preheat the oven to 200c. Chop the potatoes into chunks around 2cm and add to the bowl. Add the turmeric, nigella seeds, a glug of oil and a large pinch of salt.
- Pop the potatoes onto the baking tray in the top of the oven and cook till golden brown around 25-30 minutes don’t forget to turn around half way through.
- Chop the shallots into small pieces and grate the garlic.
- Add Lamb mince in another mixing bowl with the passanda spice blend. Then add a pinch of salt, the shallot and half the garlic. Mix well and use wet hands to shape the mix into burger shapes.
- Finely chop the mint remove the stalks.Place in a small bowl then stir in the remaining garlic, the Greek yoghurt and more salt and pepper.
- Heat a small amount of oil in the frying pan on a medium to high heat. Fry the Lamb Passanda burgers for 117 till carmelised turn them every couple of moments.
- Cut the burger buns in half and pop them on another baking tray on the middle shelf of your oven for a few mins to warm through.
- Add the mint yoghurt to the bottom of the bun smear a decent size dollop. Then place the burger into the bun.
- When the potatoes are ready serve use an additional mint yoghurt as a dip.
For sure I could not believe how tasty this Lamb Passanda burger was going to be but for sure it was packed with flavour. This is a meal which i will be recreating because it is something which I know Joe fancies trying. I am unsure if it is one which you could make with children because they can be pretty spicy but if your child likes spice they should be fine with this.
