Lamb patties for your burger! Otto’s best lamb burger recipe changes things up to 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 in a harmonious bite – quite a festive grilled lamb burger if you ask Burger Guru Otto.

Serves 4 people

Grilled Lamb Burger
  • 18 oz. of lamb mince
  • 4 brioche burger buns
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • 7 oz. feta cheese
  • 3½ oz. sundried tomatoes
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 5 oz. rocket
  • Sesame seeds
  • Sweet paprika spice
  • A pinch of 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

For your grilled lamb burger, start by washing the rocket, peel and chop the garlic and cut the feta into small cubes. Pick the leaves off the parsley and separate the egg yolk from the whites. Put the egg yolk into a big bowl together with the minced lamb. Add garlic, feta, parsley, paprika spice, sesame, salt and pepper and mix well.


Homemade burger patties

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


Toast the brioche burger buns

Light up the O.F.B.: Preheat your grill to 900°C for three minutes. Cut the brioche burger buns into halves if they are not already pre-cut and drizzle olive oil on the insides of each half. Set the temperature as low as possible and place the brioche burger buns on the grid at Meat-o-Meter 5. The bread will become super crispy within 20 seconds so make sure to keep an eye on them!


Grill the lamb patties

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


Stack up your grilled lamb burgers!

Rub a garlic clove onto the toasted brioche burger buns – this complements the olive oil with a hint of garlic. Then, make a bed of rocket leaves with some dried tomatoes on the lower bun half. Next comes the heart of your grilled lamb burger: the lamb patties. Place the patty over the bed of leaves and top it with feta and more dried tomatoes 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!
