TIP OF THE DAY: Lamb Burgers Instead Of Hamburgers

Make your Labor Day cookout different this year: Serve lamb burgers instead of hamburgers. (O.K., serve them in addition to hamburgers).

If you love lamb and don’t eat it often enough, you can get as much enjoyment from a lamb burger as from pricier lamb chops and legs of lamb. The same wonderful lamb flavor comes through in ground lamb.

A lamb burger is delicious plain with lettuce, tomato and onions, just like a regular burger.

But lamb burgers can be accessorized in a variety of ways. Try these favorites:

  • Greek-style, mixed with chopped Kalamata olives, crumbled feta, oregano, fresh dill and a touch of mint.
  • Indian-style, with curry powder, turmeric and ginger, plus optional onions, raisins and almonds.

  • Asian-style, with scallions, a drop of sesame oil and toasted sesame seeds, served with hoisin sauce and pickled ginger on the side instead of pickles and ketchup.
  • And of course, add salt and pepper to taste.

    We can’t wait for Labor Day: We’re heading to Whole Foods Market to pick up some ground lamb for a lamb burger lunch.

    Tips for making great burgers.
