Lamb burger with beets and halloumi

It’s summertime, hopefully the weather is playing ball. But whether (pun intended!) it is or not – summertime still means one thing… Get the BBQ out – even if you have to stand under a brolly, while the food is sizzling!

Or, I can let you into a secret for this recipe… it’s a burger with the taste and flair of a great BBQ – but it is cooked indoors – to be eaten outside if the weather is peachy!

Yield: 4

Lamb burger with beets and halloumi

A table is filled with a variety of American fast food burgers, including hamburgers, cheeseburgers, buffalo burgers, sliders, breakfast sandwiches, cemitas, chivitos, Jucy Lucys, and salmon burgers, as well as a kids' meal.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion, peeled and chopped finely
  • 1 clove of garlic, peeled and chopped finely
  • Pinch of chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 500 g lamb mince
  • Handful of fresh chopped mint, this is optional - but really adds a zing, so well worth adding!
  • 2 slices of Co-operative halloumi cheese
  • 4 sesame seed buns
  • 2 cooked beetroots, thinly sliced
  • To serve, redcurrant jelly, rocket and potato wedges (optional)


  1. Heat half of the oil in a pan and cook the onion for around 5 minutes - until softened. Next add the garlic chilli flakes, and the ground coriander - cook for a few more minutes.
  2. Put into a bowl to cool for a few minutes.
  3. Add the lamb and mint (if using) to the onion mixture in the bowl, mix well, and then divide into four equal portions and shape into burgers.
  4. Heat the remaining oil in the pan, and fry the burgers for around 5 minutes on each side (in batches if your pan is not big enough). Fry until golden and cooked through.
  5. Fry the halloumi for about a minute on each side until golden. Serve in the sesame bun with the burgers and beetroot slices. Top with rocket and redcurrant jelly. A great accompaniment would be potato wedges.
