With loads of changes going on recently, I have somewhat neglected the blog and been sticking to recipes I have made before, with little enthusiasm for making anything new. But, I did manage to find some time to make some of these burgers. I normally make my own burgers as they taste much nicer than shop bought or frozen ones but they are normally made from beef. Then I came across these Lamb and Feta burgers on the Weight Watchers i-phone app, which I thought was a brilliant combination and don't know why I hadn't thought of it before since I really like Greek food. The recipe below serves 4 (or 2 hungry people!) and each serving (with Tzatziki and pitta) is 11 pro points
To make the burgers you will need:
- 500g lean lamb mince (125g per person)
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 tablespoon mint
- 1 tablespoon parsley
- 1 onion, very finely chopped
- Worcestershire Sauce
- Salt and Pepper
- 4 Pitta Bread (if you are on WW use WW wholemeal pitta breads)
- 1 tablespoon shop bought Tzatziki (or make your own if you can be bothered)
- 85g Feta Cheese, crumbled
In a large mixing bowl, add the lamb, onion, garlic, mint, parsley and feta. Add a dash of Worcestershire sauce and season with a little salt and pepper. Mix everything together - get your hands in there and squish it all about!!
Once mixed together, separate the mixture into four equal pieces. Take one piece and roll it into a ball, then flatten it out between your hands into a burger shape. Repeat with the other 3 pieces.
Once cooked, cut each burger in half and serve 2 halves in a pitta bread (it fits better that way!)with whatever salad you fancy and a tablespoon of Tzatziki. Yum!!
