    1kg Scotch Lamb Mince

    2 slices White Bread

    Sea Salt and Black Pepper

    1 medium Red Onion, finely chopped

    50g Feta Cheese, crumbled

    1 small Red, Yellow or Green Pepper, finely chopped

    3 cloves of Garlic, minced

    1 large Vine Tomato, finely chopped

    Season with – Cumin, Fresh Rosemary, chopped Fresh Mint, Chilli Flakes, a little grated Ginger, Mango Chutney, drizzle of Honey or Curry Powder.


    To make the breadcrumbs, blitz the bread in a food processor.

    In a bowl, mix with the minced lamb and some salt and pepper, taking care not to over mix. Now add the onion, feta cheese, pepper, garlic and tomato, along with the seasoning – divide into 6 or 8 portions.

    Roll into balls – flatten with the palm of your hand to make burger shapes.

    Rest, covered in the fridge, for 30 minutes.

    BBQ or grill for 4-6 minutes on each side – depending on how you liked yours cooked.

    Serve on toasted buns with lettuce, sliced tomato and red onion rings.
