Ever have one of those weeks? I've just been a giant ball of stress and anxiety for days now and I can't quite put my finger on any one thing that is triggering it. PMS, the kidlets, lack of sleep, work? The stupid house alarm going off in the middle of the night two nights in a frickin' row? Anyhow, I've been feeling sleep deprived and extremely stabby. So you can imagine that cooking something uber complicated is not high on my agenda. One of my fav recipes to make during times like these are lamb burgers. Lamb burgers seem fancier than your everyday hamburger, but take about the same amount of effort.
2 1/4 lbs. ground lamb
1/2 cup diced red onion
6 oz. crumbled feta
1/2 cup chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
1 tablespoon ground coriander
3/4 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
3 tablespoons oil (+ extra for oiling the grill)
1. In a large bowl, mix the ingredients with your hands until evenly blended. Form into 6 patties. Make a thumbprint indention on the top, middle of each patty.
2. Cover and place in the fridge for 30-60 minutes
3. Preheat grill. Grill burgers over medium heat on oiled grill, for about 5-6 minutes on each side (or desired doneness).
4. Remove from grill and serve with your favorite condiments. We like to top ours with a low-cal Greek yogurt dressing like OPA by Lighthouse Feta Dill Dressing.
Makes 6 burgers.
