- 500g of lamb mince
- 2 tsp of ground coriander
- 2 tsp cumin seeds
- 1 red chilli
- Chopped parsley, about a handful
- 2 sprigs of rosemary
- Worcestershire sauce
- 1 egg
- 100g feta cheese
- 1 tbsp of sunflower oil
- 200ml of natural yoghurt
- Small bunch of mint leaves, chopped
Step 1-Start by making the mint yoghurt dip. Simply mix together the yoghurt and finely chopped mint leaves in a bowl and season to your own taste. Put aside until you are ready to serve it.
Step 2-Take a large mixing bowl and add the 500g of lamb mince along with a good measure of Worcestershire sauce, the egg (which should have been beaten before adding), spices, chilli and herbs. Again, add as much salt and black pepper as you like before mixing it all together with your hands.
Step 3-Once well mixed, start making the burgers. There should be enough for around 16 burgers from this list of ingredients. Take the 100g of feta cheese and cut in to cubes, before adding a cube of cheese to the middle of each burger.
Step 4-Turn your oven on to a temperature of 200 degrees celcius/180 degrees in fan oven/gas mark 6 and heat some oil in a frying pan. Add the burgers to the frying pan to seal them for no more than 2 minutes until they start to brown. Then, transfer them to a baking tray and cook through for no longer than 10 minutes or so until they are piping hot in the middle
Step 5-Serve on a large plate or bowl with the mint yoghurt dip on the side. Place alongside the rest of your delicious New Year’s party food and let your guests get stuck in!
