I made the burgers as directed (used the broiler to cook) but used some homemade tomato jam (made from my garden tomatoes earlier in the year) in place of the tomato relish. Love the combo of the goat cheese with the lamb & tomato jam. Thanks for sharing!
I actually picked this recipe more for the burger part than the relish so please keep that in mind when reading. I had some 'outback spirit' bbq sauce, so I added a dash of that and an egg to the meat mix before coating in panko. We skipped making the relish and instead built up the burgers with a tomato, lettuce, red onions and the goats cheese and used some of my home made chilli sauce on it. Also fried a little bit of haloumi and added that too. So yeah, a bit of a deviation, but this was a great inspiration. Thanks for sharing. Made for My Food Odyssey.
These burgers are to die for! I especially loved the tomato relish, and as easy as it is to make I'll probably do all the time now in place of boring old ketchup. Thanks for sharing this winner!
I made these for a friend who, halfway through life, became allergic to Red Meat and Cheese from cow's milk. Her favorite food used to be cheeseburgers, and she hasn't had one in 5 years. Needless to say, she LOVED these, as did everyone else. We skipped the tomato relish and opted for caramelized red onions. I also added an egg to help bind them and cooked them on a griddle over HIGH heat. This recipe is a winner! Thanks for posting.
Super tasty and moist burger. I followed the recipe exactly and the lamb burgers turned out perfectly. The tomato/onion relish was a delicious topping. Who needs ketchup?! If you are looking for something different from your average burger, I highly recommend giving these a try. ~Made for ZWT 5 ~
DH and I made these lamb burgers for dinner tonight and absolutely loved them!! I, like Peter J, used a heaping 1/4 tsp of crushed red pepper flakes to the relish, which gave it the perfect amount of heat. Also, I did not have any kaiser/hamburger buns, so I used up some large pitas (the kind with the pocket where you can put the meat inside) and I think it might be even more delicious this way than with rolls/buns. I didnt measure the chevre goat cheese, just spread it generously on my pita. We will definitely make this recipe again. Thanks, Sharon!
Great flavour combination and the goat's cheese tends to melt and blend beautifully with the relish when you close the burger. I used Bergy's suggestion and added about a 1/4 teaspoon of chilli flakes to the relish which gave it a bit of tang without being over the top.
Great flavors! And it all blended together so nicely. My dh went back for THIRDS!!! A definite keeper. Next time I think I will go extra heavy on the cheese, the creamy tart flavor of the chevre was the perfect accompaniment to the lamb patties & tomato relish.
This was very tasty and would be a 5 star but I felt that the tomatoe relish lacked a bit of kick - I would add 1/2 tsp of chili flakes - now, this would not be for everyone - most, I am sure, will love it exactly as is - I do like a bit more spice than the average person. I loved the flavor of the lamb patties with the capers basil & shallot. I used corn meal as the coating and was lucky enough to find Chevre goat cheese. Definately a do again Sharon - You Aussie's know your lamb!
