A tasty lamb burger with a cheesy surprise in the middle
Prep time: 5 mins
Cooking time: 15 mins
Total time: 20 mins
Skill level: Bit of effort
- 250g packet lamb mince
- 2 tbsp chopped fresh mint
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 60-90g Double Gloucester cheese
- Light olive oil, for drizzling
- 2 ciabatta rolls or burger baps, halved and toasted
- Rocket leaves and sliced tomato, to serve
- Mix together the lamb with the mint and seasoning, divide in half and shape each into burger.
- Cut the cheese in half and press a piece into the centre of each burger, pressing well over where it’s been inserted to seal it.
- Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan. Add burgers. Cook them for 12-15 minutes over a medium heat, turning them occasionally until the cheese starts to ooze out, and the meat juices are clear when burger is pierced with a skewer.
- Serve the burgers in toasted bread rolls or baps with rocket leaves underneath and sliced tomato on top
Sue’s tip: Try to push the cheese in, so that’s it’s central in the burger – if it’s too close to one side, it will start to ooze out before the lamb is cooked
