Greek Lamb Burgers
The weekend is made for dip centric meals right? Delicious meals that you can really linger over and share with others, but without too much fuss.
So when my friends over at Yumi Dips asked me if I would review some of their products I was very quick to say “Yes please.”
Then I got thinking. What is my favourite style of dip and what would I love to eat it with?
So I present to you, dear reader, Greek Lamb Burgers with hommus, fresh mint salad, homemade chips and pickled cucumber.
These burgers are very good.
The Hommus and little fresh greek (ish) salad with feta and mint is a perfect accompaniment to the burger. I use a combination of lamb and beef mince because I like the flavour of lamb, but I don’t like to be overwhelmed by it. The chips are awesome, particularly when you smother them in Yumi’s garlic aioli.

Place the lamb, beef, capers, oregano and egg in a bowl.
Mix with your hands until well combined, then form into six patties. Pop in the fridge to chill.
For the salad, place the green leaves into a bowl and dress with a little Balsamic Vinegar. Top with as much Fetta as you like and a little drizzle of the oil from the feta. Tear in the mint leaves and gently toss to combine.
