Lamb, Chilli & Pesto Burgers

You can use my poor man's pesto recipe here and throw in whatever herbs are on hand. Just think lamb and ... go together. In this case my little garden is full of coriander, rosemary, mint and some big red chilli so they all ended up in these.

Ingredients
takes 20 minutes
serves 2-4 (one was enough for me but Trevor managed two)

Pattie ingredients:-
  • 500g lean lamb mince
  • 2-4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp pesto
  • handful fresh coriander leaves & rosemary leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 large red chilli, deseeded & finely chopped (my chilli's aren't that hot so use as much or little as you prefer)
  • Salt & pepper to season
  • 2-4 burger buns
  • salad filling such as: cos lettuce, avocado, tomato, cucumber
  • onion chutney
 Mint yoghurt to serve (optional):-
  • yoghurt
  • fresh mint
Method 
  1. Place all the pattie ingredients in a bowl and mix together
    then divide into 4 patties.
  2. Place a small amount of oil into a fry pan and heat on high. Place patties into the pan and flatten slightly, cook on high for between 4-6 minutes each side. I like mine slightly pink in the middle. Let them rest covered for 5 minutes.
  3. Assemble the burgers: split the burger buns & place under grill to warm through. Place all the different fillings on the table and let everyone make their own creations. Enjoy!
