30 Min.
4 Min.

Lamb patties for your burger! Otto’s best lamb burger recipe changes up your regular burger by using rich and flavorful lamb mince. Stack it up with sesame, rocket, feta and dried tomatoes on a brioche bun and it all comes together to a harmonic whole – quite a neat grilled lamb burger if you ask burger guru Otto.

Ingredients for four people

For the grilled lamb burger
  • 18 Oz. of lamb mince
  • 4 Brioche burger buns
  • 2 Egg yolks
  • 1 Bundle of parsley
  • 7 Oz. feta cheese
  • 3½ Oz. sundried tomatoes
  • 4 Garlic cloves
  • 5 Oz. rocket
  • Sesame
  • Sweet paprika spice
  • Salt


Shape the lamb patties out of lamb mince, feta, egg yolk, sesame and herbs.
Drizzle olive oil over the brioche burger buns and toast them lightly on the lowest temperature level, before rubbing a garlic clove over them.
Put the lamb patties on the grill grate, set the Meat-O-Meter to level 3 and select a medium temperature.
Like the Italian flag: white feta, green rocket and red tomatoes – che bella!


Lay the ground work

Wash the rocket, peel and chop the garlic and cut the feta into small cubes. Pick the leaves off the parsley and divide eggs. Put egg yolk into a big bowl together with the lamb mince. Add garlic, feta, parsley, paprika spice, sesame, salt and pepper and mix well.


Homemade burger patties

Shape four lamb patties out of the lamb mince mixture. They are easily shaped if you wet your hands in cold water. In case the lamb patties start to fall apart, you can add another egg yolk.


Toast the brioche burger buns

Light up the Otto Grill: Preheat your grill onto 1500°F for three minutes. Cut the brioche burger buns into halves, if they are not pre-cut and drizzle olive oil on the insides. Set the temperature as low as possible and place the brioche burger buns on the grid at Meat-o-Meter 5. The bread gets super crispy within 20 seconds. So make sure to keep an eye on them!


Grill the lamb patties

Now it’s the lamb patties’ turn! Set the Meat-O-Meter on level 3 and set the burner to middle heat. Let the lamb patties get evenly brown and lower the temperature as needed, since the sesame seeds burn easily. After about one to two minutes you can turn the lamb patties and also grill the other side. After that, the patty is still lightly pink on the inside and this is exactly how you’re grilled lamb burger is supposed to be!


Stack up your grilled lamb burgers!

Rub a garlic clove on the toasted brioche burger buns – this complements the olive oil. Then, make a bed of rocket leaves and some dried tomatoes on the lower bun half. Next comes the heart of your grilled lamb burger: the lamb patties. Cover it with dried tomatoes and feta before closing the burger with the top half of the brioche bun. Stabilize the grilled lamb burger with a wooden skewer and crown it with a small Italian flag of white feta, green rocket and a red dried tomato!
