Lamb and Sweetfire® Beetroot Burgers with Feta

04 JANUARY 2013
Dish type: Lamb

Serves 4
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15-20 minutes

Ingredients

500g minced lamb
250g Sweetfire® beetroot*, finely chopped
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp chopped mint
2 cloves garlic, crushed
100g feta cheese, cut into
4 pieces
Salt and freshly ground black pepper 

4 burger buns or ciabatta rolls
Salad leaves
Cherry tomatoes, cut in ½
Finely sliced red onion rings

Method

1. In a large bowl, combine the lamb, Sweetfire® beetroot, egg, mint and garlic. Season to taste with salt & freshly ground black pepper and mix thoroughly.

2. Divide into 4 equal portions. Take one portion and flatten it in the palm of your hand. Place a cube of feta in the middle and draw the meat up and over the cheese, moulding it into a burger shape and taking care to ensure the cheese is totally surrounded. Repeat with the other meat portions and set aside in the fridge for 30 minutes to rest.

3. When you are ready to cook the burgers, heat a griddle pan (or BBQ) to medium hot and cook the burgers for around 6-8 minutes on each side. Check they are cooked by inserting a skewer into the middle. If it comes out piping hot to touch they are cooked, if not cook for a further minute or so.

4. Serve the burgers in buns with salad.

* Ruby red baby beetroot, freshly cooked and infused with Sweetfire® marinade (a natural marinade made using chillis, oil, a little sugar, and white wine vinegar) which adds a delicious kick to salads and spices up cold meats and sandwiches. Available from Tescos and Waitrose.
