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!
- 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)
- 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.
- Put into a bowl to cool for a few minutes.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
