FETA STUFFED LAMB BURGERS
1/2 cup packed mint leaves, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves (optional)
1/2 cup crumbled feta
1 1/4 lb ground lamb
Prepare a medium grill.
Mince and mash the garlic with pinch of sea salt, then gently stir together with mint, feta, and black pepper. Form this mixture into patties (You will need one feta patty per lamb burger) Now, form firm lamb patties (4-8 depending on the size) and with a sharp knife, delicately slice the burger horizontally, without fully cutting the burger in 1/2. Place the feta patty in the middle of the burger and pinch closed. Repeat with remaining lamb and filling.
Season burgers with salt and pepper.
I've recently heard a chef recommend to brush a heating grill rack 4 or 5 times before grilling to create a stick free surface while grilling. Grill burgers, turning once, 8 to 10 minutes total for medium-rare.
