Packed of protein, this dish will keep you full for longer, useful for those watching their weight.
  • Replace the lamb mince with beef mince if you like.
  • You can also barbecue the burgers, using either the barbecue char-grill plate or flat plate.
  • Burgers should always be thoroughly cooked. Burgers should not be served rare or pink. A good guide is to insert a skewer into the thickest part; if it is ready to eat the juices will be clear.
  • Do not store fresh mince any longer than necessary. Refer to use-by-dates for packaged mince and use well within that time. Loose mince is best used within 1 to 2 days.
  • To reduce the sodium content of this dish, reduce the amount of feta cheese used and replace Turkish bread with wholegrain sandwich bread.

These lamb patties are fantastic - really tasty and good enough for entertaining. Use them for burger patties, or even roll into small balls and put onto skewers with vegetables to make kebabs for the BBQ.
