We really like having lamb mince on hand. It makes a really nice change from beef and it can be pretty versatile.

  • Garlic
  • Red Onion
  • Salt, Pepper and Vegetable Oil
  • Yellow Pepper and Red Onion – To up the veg content and give some beautiful colour!

Burgers and meatballs are some of my favourite things to do with lamb mince because they’re easy, tasty and you can do so many different things with them.

Lamb is used a lot in Greek and Moroccan food so that it can really shine. Just like in this Greek lamb burger recipe the addition of feta and roasted vegetables really accentuates the flavour of the meat.

If you’re eating these in the summer then sling them on the barbecue and they’ll come out fantastic.

We decided to do a similar thing with these Moroccan lamb burger flatbreads. The meat is flavoured with one of our favourite spices, aleppo pepper, along with cumin and some garlic, red onion and fresh mint.

We’re lucky enough to have a nearby shop that stocks aleppo pepper but if you can’t find it anywhere then you can order some right here:

The burgers are then fried in a hot skillet to get all nice and crispy on the outside before stuffing into flatbreads with some roasted vegetables. Topped with some crumbled feta, chilli yoghurt and a big handful of fresh coriander (cilantro). Oooooh yeah.
