A delicious hamburger. Add some fresh rosemary to give the burgers a real Greek flavour. Serve the burgers on hamburger buns or pita bread with tzatziki sauce, or on their own with a Greek salad.


Serves: 6 

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1 kg lamb mince
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 125g goats cheese
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano

Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a small frypan over medium heat. Cook and stir the onions in the oil until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Gently knead together the softened onions, lamb, egg, bread crumbs, garlic, salt and pepper. Divide the mixture into 6 parts and roll into balls then cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Mix together the goats cheese, extra-virgin olive oil, basil and oregano until well combined; cover and chill for 5 minutes.
  4. Preheat the barbecue for medium-high heat.
  5. Working with one portion of meat at a time make an indentation in the centre of the ball with your thumb. Fill the indentation with a heaping tablespoon of the goats cheese mixture. Gently pull and form the meat patty around the cheese filling, making a burger-shaped patty. Repeat with each ball of the lamb mixture.
  6. Barbecue the patties until no longer pink in the centre and well done, about 8 minutes per side.
