Lamb Hamburger Patties

Lamb Hamburger Patties Here's a lamb hamburger patties recipe I use - not much different to the recipe for beef patties really. These hamburger patties come together in a nice malleable consistency which makes it easy to form patties that stay in one piece and don't fall to bits.

Hamburger made with lamb patties


  • 700g Lamb mince
  • 1 onion
  • 1 egg
  • half cup of breadcrumbs (approx)
  • fresh herbs - basil, coriander or parsley
  • 1Tbsp Fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • salt / pepper to season


This isn't rocket science. Mix everything together in a bowl, except for the breadcrumbs. Adding the egg really moistens up the mixture, and adding the breadcrumbs is how I dry out the mixture again. Add the breadcrumbs until the mixture is somewhat dry, and is easy to shape into patties.
Shape the mixture into approx 8 patties, and grill or fry to cook.

Great with your favorite homemade burger. I find that homemade bread makes all the difference, but I have used a fresh kaiser bun in the photograph which was also pretty good.
