1 lb American ground lamb

3 Garlic cloves, minced

1 tbsp Olive oil

1 tbsp Dried parsley

1 1/2 tsp Onion salt

1 tsp Black pepper

4 Hamburger buns

1/2 cup Pickled onions

1 cup Greens (spinach or spring mix) - optional

Feta Slaw

1 tbsp Lemon juice

2 tbsp Olive oil

2 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Pepper

3 cups Shredded cabbage

1/2 cup Feta, crumbled

Roasted Tomato Aioli

15 oz. Can of Roasted tomatoes, drained

1 cup Mayonnaise

2 Garlic cloves

1 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Pepper


Burger Patties

1Combine ground lamb, olive oil, garlic, parsley, black pepper, and onion salt in a large bowl

2Mix well with clean hands or a wooden spoon or spatula.

3Form into 4 equal sized patties (about 1/4 pound each). Flatten to about 3/4 inch thick and press your thumb into the center of each patty. This will prevent some of the shrinking of the patty during cooking.

4Grill at 400 degrees for about 4 minutes on each side, or until internal temperature is 160 degrees Fahrenheit.


1For the feta slaw, add lemon juice, olive oil, black pepper, and salt to a large bowl. Whisk to combine

2Add shredded cabbage and crumbled feta to the dressing and toss to combine.

3For the tomato aioli, add drained roasted tomatoes, garlic, salt, pepper, and mayo to a blender jar.

4Blend until smooth.

Building the Burger

1Start with a toasted bun, add greens if desired (like spinach or spring mix), drizzle some roasted tomato aioli, top with your perfectly cooked lamb burger, add feta slaw, and crown it with some pickled onions. Truly a burger made better.
