Lamb burgersWe had these mini lamb burgers with Mediterranean hummus as a pre-run for National Braai Day which was today 24 September. I was in JHB at the Good Food and Wine show so Braai Day in a way happened without me today. Luckily I can as a true South African,  slap a few chops and some sausage on a grid any time I want, especially now that  the weather is changing  and we have slightly warmer evenings.

These mini lamb burgers were right up my ally, you see I love a good hamburger, perfectly grilled on the outside, medium to rare and juicy on the inside on soft sesame buns with crispy lettuce and tomato……simple but oh so good! Of course you can add flavor and texture to your lamb burger, but if you use good quality meat, you are more than halfway there. Even a good chicken burger now and then, gets my attention, but  the king of burgers for me, has to me a lamb burger. It is just in a different league! The flavor for me is just amazing, maybe because the flavor really is in the fat….. oh alright it is Braai Day, relax a little and just eat it, ok!

I added a Greek twist to my lamb burgers this time and served it with Mediterranean Delicacies Hummus. I also made bite-size lamb burgers, which was just perfect snack food!
