Lamb burger with pickled red onions, feta & baby gem lettuce
This lamb burger is a summertime favourite
500g lamb mince
2 garlic cloves, crushed
4 smoked anchovies (or unsmoked), minced
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp rosemary, finely chopped
Salt and pepper
For the pickled red onions
1 large red onion, finely sliced
3 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp caster sugar
Pinch of salt to taste
Baby gem lettuce
To prepare the pickled onions, put the onion slices into a heatproof bowl. Boil the kettle and pour over the slices. Leave for about 1 minute, drain.
Add the onions to the rest of the ingredients and allow to marinate.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix the lamb mince with the remaining ingredients. Season well with salt and pepper. Put some cling film into the bottom of a mug, add some mince to shape your burger patties.
Cook your burger patties either on a hot barbecue, griddle or frying pan until cooked through.
Toast the burger buns, add some pickled onions, feta and gem lettuce, adding extra ingredients if you wish.
