In celebration of International Burger Day this May 28th, why not try a gourmet creation.


  • 600g lean minced lamb

  • 2 tbsp pine nuts

  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 2 tsp ground allspice

  • ½ cup Greek yoghurt

  • 1 tbsp tahini paste

  • Juice of half a lemon

  • 4 Turkish rolls

  • Salad, lemon wedges and pickled vegetables, to serve


  • 1.

    Mix the lamb with the pine nuts, spring onion, garlic and allspice and season with salt and pepper. Form into 4 patties and lightly brush with oil.

  • 2.

    Preheat a ridged char grill or barbeque to moderately high and cook the patties for 4 minutes on each side or until cooked to your liking. Set aside to rest for 5 minutes, covering loosely with foil.

  • 3.

    Mix the yoghurt and tahini together and season with salt and pepper.

  • 4.

    Add lemon juice to taste. Place onto the buns and top with the patties.

  • 5.

    Add the salad and serve with lemon wedges and pickled chillies.

  • Tips:

  • 1.

    For a healthier, lighter version try it without the bun and serve with extra salad. The lamb patties can be prepared up to a few hours in advance and refrigerated until ready to cook.
