Lamburgers for Easter!

20170410_200501

Who needs hamburgers when you’ve got lamburgers??!! I usually cook a leg of lamb for Easter, but this year we are trying a more casual approach and choosing to enjoy extra family time instead of cooking so much!

First, start with a great apron! I love the ones from Anthropologie! And they make the most amazing hostess gifts! See which options they have here!

So, last night, I made up my patties ahead of time and have frozen them to save time on Sunday!

 

First, I mixed my dried spices….oregano, rosemary, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and parsley. Fresh ingredients are always better, but I had the dried spices right in my pantry. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

Then I added my olive oil and made a paste!

Next was time for the magic of mixing….with my own bare hands! It makes the best burgers! No meat fears here!

After mixing the spices and meat….yummmmm….I am excited already, I formed patties. I used 1.5 lbs of ground lamb to make five patties. I actually meant to make six 1/4 lb burgers, but gave someone an extra large burger. That person must be someone special!

 

They are all packed up in wax paper and frozen in my freezer. I will move them to the refrigerator Saturday night to slow thaw, and then on Sunday afternoon, we will grill those babies up!
