Woman's Weekly recipe A tasty lamb burger with a cheesy surprise in the middle


  • 250g packet lamb mince
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh mint
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 60-90g Double Gloucester cheese
  • Light olive oil, for drizzling
  • 2 ciabatta rolls or burger baps, halved and toasted
  • Rocket leaves and sliced tomato, to serve

This burger will taste delicious cooked on a BBQ


  1. Mix together the lamb with the mint and seasoning, divide in half and shape each into burger.
  2. Cut the cheese in half and press a piece into the centre of each burger, pressing well over where itís been inserted to seal it.
  3. Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan. Add burgers. Cook them for 12-15 minutes over a medium heat, turning them occasionally until the cheese starts to ooze out, and the meat juices are clear when burger is pierced with a skewer.
  4. Serve the burgers in toasted bread rolls or baps with rocket leaves underneath and sliced tomato on top

Sue's tip: Try to push the cheese in, so that's it's central in the burger - if it's too close to one side, it will start to ooze out before the lamb is cooked
