lamb burgers

I had a craving for lamb burgers, and we wanted to try out our new meat grinder, so we purchased a leg of lamb and made our own ground lamb. The meat was fantastic! Just enough fat to make the burgers juicy and flavourful. I have made the burger recipe below with many different types of fresh herbs: chives, mint, rosemary and oregano all work very well.

Lamb Burgers
2 lbs freshly ground lamb meat
1 egg
2 T plain yogurt
2 T dijon mustard
1/3 cup fresh breadcrumbs
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 T fresh dill, chopped well
large pinch salt
large pinch freshly ground black pepper
6-8 portabella mushrooms
250 grams goat cheese (chevre)

Combine ingredients and shape into patties that are as large or small as you like. Grill over high heat until done to your likeness. Meanwhile, grill the portabella mushrooms, gill side down and then flip to grill opposite side. Top with 2 T chevre, per mushroom. Serve mushrooms over burgers on a multigrain roll!
