Lamb burger recipe

I need a new recipe for lamb burgers/patties. The one I used last was an absolutely delicious kofta-style recipe from Martha Stewart with garlic, onions, cayenne pepper, and coriander powder. I'd like a recipe that is a little different from the usual Mediterranena/Greek/Indian style. I'm thinking maybe Asian or Italian. Any ideas? Thanks a lot.

  1. I use Penzey's rosemary, garlic powder and cracked black pepper on the outside of the lamb patty, and "cheese" them with havarti a minute before they are done. I serve on a bun on a nest of Boston lettuce, and mint sauce. They take slightly longer to cook than beef, and really plump up, as you know.

    1. Look under the recipes section of Chowhound, and you'll find a recipe for grilled lamb burgers with a cucumber yogurt sauce. I made them about a week ago, and they were terrific!

      1. For anyone else who was intrigued by the ones you mentioned that you previously made here is a link. Thanks for mentioning, I'll be making these very soon!

        On the Recipes section of Chowhound there is a recipe for Asian Beefburgers and I'm thinking you could sub lamb for the beef for Asian-inspired lamb burgers.

        1. I don't have the exact recipe, but try stuffing your lamb burger with a mint/garlic/butter chunk before grilling. It's excellent!
