Just reading this makes me drool... For the bread, have you tried naan bread? I make my own. I make all kinda sliders and burgers and found out its wonderful when you bake your own bread right aling w the burger...let me know ifbyou d like the bread recipy. Its simply and good. Puffs up so you have a top and a bottom you can cut and put your burger right in. I serve my turkey sliders w a mix of plum nectarine and apricot roast. They guys luv it

If you add an egg or flour thats what is the difference between burger and meatloaf!

Heck I'll post my burger recipe, warning I cook and measure with the eye

1lb 80/20 ground beef
HP Sauce (http://www.heinz.co.uk/sauce-partners/hp-sauce)
Worcestershire sauce (Pronounced Wus-chester-sheer. I'm English, trust me on this)
seasoning (S&P)
Cabot Sharp Cheddar
Harris Teeter La Brea Bakery Three-Cheese Semolina Loaf (About 3-4 slices)
Olive or vegitable oil (brushing)

Very simple to make.
1) Blitz the 3-4 slices of bread into bread crumbs
2) put ground beef into a bowl, add bread crumbs, season and 4 dashes of Worcestershire
3) measure out about 2 table spoons of HP.. or squeeze about enough to fill an ping-pong balls worth in
4) combine thoughly by hand
5) cut 1/4" cheese strips off the cabbot block.
6) form patties round the cheese
7) brush with oil
8) Grill to your liking.


I make em big when I grill them, I also like to add grilled bacon

One of my favourite mixes for burger meat is half lamb/half buffalo, and cook SLOW over a LOW heat. Ohhhh....

I did that too with lamb/ buffalo and it was awesome... Only thing is that I usually sear of the sides and then slow cook the insides....but it was very nice...

Ground Buffalo is a choice if: (a) you are on a very low fat diet, and (b) you must eat something from the red meat case. Which means of course, that there is no place for buffalo on the grille unless you happen to be a Buffalo rancher.

Lamb on the other hand is also dry as the desert but has a great flavor. So if its a lamb burger, make the patty with a pat of butter inside. Cook over medium heat and the grill will flare up when the butter starts to melt. Remove immediately and serve.

I never had my lamb dry, I love lamb and cook it often, more than any other red meat. In order to get it medium rare, what I like to,do, heat the grill blazing hot, slap a nice sear on both side to lock in the juices and then just ready book to perfection. Medium rare with nice pink is my preference.




This is a leg of lamb, cut in portions





lamb Chop

That's not a burger. My experience with lamb burgers is they are nearly always dry and overcooked.

Extra lean meat has no place in a burger, just make something else.

I am certainly up for some pink centered lamb loin chops with a crispy outside , but like Bolty says, lamb is too dry for a burger. If you must, since it is all about the lamb taste as the only reason to grind it and grille it as a burger, only the neutral choice of butter (see above) works. If you put enough bacon in it to fix it it no longer tastes like lamb.

You could enhance the lamb flavor with garam masala
