A tasty lamb burger with a cheesy surprise in the middle

Ingredients

  • 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

Method

  • Mix together the lamb with the mint and seasoning, divide in half and shape each into burger.

  • Cut the cheese in half and press a piece into the centre of each burger, pressing well over where it’s been inserted to seal it.

  • 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.

  • Serve the burgers in toasted bread rolls or baps with rocket leaves underneath and sliced tomato on top
