Lamb Burgers


This weekend a massive rain storm ran up and down the east coast.  There was even snow in some places.  Yikes! 

This is quite the change from the 70 degree temperatures last week.  Mr. J and I decided it was time to bring out the grill and fire up some burgers.  These weren't just any burgers though. We had made the trip to Whole Foods and got some pre-made lamb burgers.  


I justify the pre-made by saying that they were on sale. I definitely would not be purchasing these again unless they were on sale.  Not that they weren't delicious but I checked out the ingredients and they were simply ground lamb, feta, and Kalamata olives.  I can certainly do that on my own.


Mr. J grilled up the burgers and some onions.  I see now that he was not being 100% honest with me last fall when he swore he gave the grill a good scrub down before storing it for the winter. Tsk, tsk!

He also jazzed up the burgers with a homemade spread of sauteed garlic and melted feta topped with tomatoes.  It was a great addition and makes up a bit for the lacking of grill cleaning.


Lessons learned:
  1. Burgers made from ground lamb are delicious
  2. Toppings add value
  3. Do not waste money on pre-made versions
  4. Don't believe husband when he says he cleaned something

  2. What a great burger! We are supposed to get to 90 today here in Colorado. Definitely grilling weather as opposed to turning on the stove today!

  5. Ha-I grilled out the other day and had to change bottles of propane-the first ran out! It was irritating, but the burgers finally got cooked. Your lamb does sound like a better idea though. I will keep the info in mind on pre-seasoned patties when it comes to the meat case.I do like to know what seasonings and adds in they did to increase the price as well as make it more flavorful.
    Your burgers do look tasty! Also, your husband has a lot more scrubbing to do now than had he done it before storing it in the fall. Lesson learned the hard way I guess! Have a great evening.

    1. I am sure you will come up with some yummy seasonings for your grilling adventures. I am not sure my husband actually learned that lesson.

  6. I would say that I agree with all 4 of your conclusions and I can't wait untill the end of next month when we start heading out to our summer house and fire up the grill...which I'm sure wasn't cleaned despite whatever I was told! :)
