Bunless Lamb Burger



Day 7 of our carbless diet - I have been seeing things associated with burgers everywhere; burger ads, people eating burgers on the tram (very bad!), flyer from the local burger joint in the letter box and more burger ads. "Well.... if you can't beat them, join them!" I said to myself so for our dinner we had these beautiful lamb burger sans bun and chips but with  rather big patties instead. Check out our burger with chips if this sounds too silly to you :)



serves 2
you'll need;
500 g of lamb mince or mince of your choice
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 tsp of smoked paprika
1 tsp of cumin powder
1/4 cup of bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste
1 small head of cos lettuce
2 vine ripen tomatoes, sliced
1 large beetroot, roasted, sliced and marinated*
1/2 a cucumber, sliced
1/2 a red onion, cut into thin rings
tzatziki to serve
gherkin to serve
lemon wedges to serve
*marinate sliced beetroot with salt, pepper, olive oil and dash of balsamic vinegar.



Mix mince with beaten egg, red onion, spices, bread crumbs and season well.



With wet hands, divide meat mixture into 2 portions and mould into patties. (4 if you are making normal burgers)



Grill meat patties on a hot griddle or on the bbq.



Prepare the tzatziki.



Marinated beetroot.



My choice of fillings.



Assemble the bunless burger as you would with a normal burger and drizzle a generous amount of tzatziki atop the lamb patties. I also served it with a wedge of lemon and some gherkins.
