Spicy Lamb Burgers by JeffreyW
I’m travelling again, but made sure to get this ready for you. I decided since I had so many burger recipes I would make a whole week of it. The posts include Cuban Burgers, Dill Burgers, Jalapeno Burgers, Focaccia Burgers
and the recipes can be found here
If burgers aren’t your thing, I also have a week of peach recipes at this link.
That should be enough to keep you busy until I get back. What are you grilling this weekend?
The featured recipes tonight are a Curried Turkey Burger from me and a Spicy Lamb Burger (pictured) from JeffreyW.
Curried Turkey Burgers
Always looking for new flavors to grill and since I love good pita bread, something that would go nicely with that. Came up with this for a taste treat and a perfect way to use ground turkey since it can be bland if not well seasoned before grilling. Serve with fresh corn on the cob and grilled eggplant.
- 1 to 1-1/2 lb ground turkey
- 3 tbsp plain yogurt
- 1 tsp ground curry
- 1/8 tsp ground cumin
- ½ tsp salt
- 3 green onions, chopped
- 4 pita breads
In bowl combine all ingredients except bread and mix well. Form 4 patties and grill, broil or fry to desired doneness. Serve in pita bread. Ground mustard and mayonnaise make good toppings or a little Greek salad dressing, along with lettuce & tomatoes.

I dug a pound of lamb burger from the freezer this morning. I bought a couple pounds of it a while back, made gyros out of the first pound. Saw this recipe today while browsing around and remembered that I had some. We had everything the recipe called for, feta included, but I wanted goat cheese so Mrs J picked some up while on a run to town this afternoon. Oh, and the cilantro. Yuck. She didn’t get any of that, we both suffer from the “tastes like soap” syndrome.
I mixed this stuff up in a bowl and let is sit in the fridge for a couple of hours:
- 1 pound ground lamb
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
- 1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
- 1 teaspoon sherry
- 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
I broiled three patties from that mix in the toaster oven and went from there. Some tomato slices and the same from a smallish red onion and here you go:
