“I’m not stubborn, my way is just better.”
The Most Delicious Lamb Burger in the WORLD!
I am a stubborn person. Those who know me will attest to the fact, probably more loudly and vehemently than truly necessary! Oftentimes this quality is to my own detriment, but more often it results in not only the conquering of something that had been frustrating, a most wonderful feeling but also, as in this case, the satisfied palates of those who gather ’round my table.
These lamb burgers are the final version of some that I have been experimenting with for quite a while. I refused to give up on what I knew would be too delicious to quit. The first few versions, while tasty, were just too rich, resulting in half eaten burgers left on plates, a heartbreaking sight for any cook.
As with many moments of success, I just knew these were going to be winners when I was patting them out. I felt strongly (and I was right I might add!) that the finely diced peppers and onions were going to add a level of freshness and yet not overpower and border on tasting like filler or worse, veggie burgers!
I encourage you to play with the amount of feta as it is after all, a personal matter of taste. There are days when I might have put much more but I was going for subtle with this burger.
When you make these burgers I know that you will be treated to the same sounds that only those eating the most delicious flavours can produce, and that will be a success for all!
Why stubbornness is generally considered a negative quality is beyond me… I suppose it’s all in the marketing… I think I shall go with the word tenacious in the future!
Enjoy & Namaste!

- 1 lb ground beef or veal for a milder outcome (for juicer burgers I use medium ground)
