Moroccan lamb burgers

Ingredients for Moroccan lamb burgers

400g lamb mince

1 teaspoon paprika

A teaspoon of ground cumin

1 teaspoon coriander leaf

1/2 teaspoon Ras El Hanout (grind this in a pestle and mortar first)

1 tablespoon breadcrumbs

One beaten egg

Method for Moroccan lamb burgers

Moroccan lamb burgers - The spices

Pop the mince into a bowl, add the spices and breadcrumbs. Combine. Then add one beaten egg and combine until you make a large ball. It should only take a few seconds of mixing by hand to combine all the egg.

Moroccan lamb burgers - the mixed meat

As you can see the spices are nice and evenly mixed throughout. Divide into 4, 6 or 8. Personally next time I will divide into half. That half will become 4 burgers and I will make meatballs for another dinner with the rest of the dough.

Moroccan lamb burgers on the griddle

Griddle for 6-7 minutes on each side. I then popped them into the oven at 190C for 10 minutes while I made airfryer chips. This meant that they were perfect! A lovely firm outside and cooked all the way through to perfection. You could always griddle them for another 2-3 minutes on each side to ensure that they are cooked throughout and skip the oven part.

Moroccan lamb burgers - griddled

We enjoyed ours served in a brioche bun with tomato ketchup and grated cheese, as we didn’t have much else in! You could enjoy this with chutney, mint sauce, all sorts really. They are absolutely delicious Moroccan lamb burgers and they were ready in under 30 minutes which is always great for a midweek dinner.

      If you want to make a healthier version then you could use turkey mince.
