Greek Lamb Burgers

Cooking method: Grilling
Serves 6
Total preparation time: 20 min.
Ground lamb can be mixed with all manner of flavorings, including piquant kalamata olives, and still taste very much like lamb.


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup onion, diced
1 (large clove) garlic, minced
2 pounds ground lamb
2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons kalamata olives, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh mint, chopped
vegetable oil cooking spray


1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook for about 2 minutes, or until they begin to soften. Add garlic and cook for 2 or 3 minutes longer, or until the onions are tender. Set aside to cool.

2. Combine the lamb, parsley, olives, mint, and cooled onions in a large bowl. Using your hands, mix well. Form into 6 patties. Refrigerate until ready to grill.

3. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill. Lightly spray the grill rack with vegetable oil cooking spray. The coals should be hot.

4. Grill the burgers for about 7 minutes. Turn and grill for about 6 minutes longer for medium-well burgers. Serve with the salsa.


You can cook the onions and garlic in a skillet in the kitchen or, if you have a gas grill with a burner, cook them outside.


Serve with Minted Summer Fruit Salsa
