Another recipe for my Abel & Cole series.
In my Marvellous Meat Box, I got a pack of lamb mince. Now, I rarely cook lamb but when I do, it's usually for a roast. (check out my spring lamb recipe here) the first thing that came to mind when thinking of what to make with it, was lamb burgers.
I love baking so this was the perfect excuse to bake some bread rolls as well.
You will need
A few sprigs of Rosemary, finely chopped
Salt & Pepper
2 small cloves of Garlic, crushed
Blue cheese or Halloumi
For the buns:
50g Bird's Custard Powder
550ml of milk
25g unsalted butter
750g strong white flour
1 sachet instant dry yeast
a beaten egg for glazing
sesame seeds (optional)
First off, preheat your oven to 200 degrees. Mix the milk into the custard powder and pour into a saucepan. Bring to the boil. Once thickened, take off heat and add your butter and sugar. Leave to cool completely.
Divide the dough into pieces and, using a little flour shape into balls and then flatten slightly with a rolling pin. Place on a lined baking tray, cover and leave for about an hour, or until they've doubled in size.
Now for the burgers!
Place your mince into a large mixing bowl, season and add the crushed garlic and rosemary. Mix well
Now for the messy part - get your hands into the mince and make patties with them. Place on a plate and brush them with a little olive oil.
First off, heat the grill and then get out a griddle pan.
Once the pan is hot, place the burgers in and cook for around 8-10 minutes. Then, shove them under the grill for 2 minutes each side before getting them out.
Put the cheese on the lamb and then place under the grill for a minute before building your burgers.
They went down a storm with the male's in my household.
