For the burgers

  • 500 g lamb mince
  • 1 handful fresh mint leaves
  • ¼ tsp salt

For the herb mayonnaise

  • 4 tbsp mayonnaise click the link for my homemade recipe
  • 1 small handful fresh mint leaves
  • 1 small handful fresh coriander
  • 1 small handful fresh thyme leaves only
  • ¼ lemon zest only
  • Salt

To serve

  • 4 burger buns
  • Salad I used lettuce and red onion


Make the burgers

  • Finely chop the mint leaves (a handful) and put them into a large bowl.
  • Add the lamb mince (500g) and salt (¼ tsp) and mix with your hands until the mint leaves and salt are evenly distributed.
  • Divide the mixture into four and shape into burgers. Make a little dent in the centre of each one (as the meat naturally puffs up as it cooks, so this will ensure that you end up with a flat burger).

Cook your burgers...

  • In the oven pre-heated to 220ºC/200ºC fan for 12-14 minutes.


  • Under the grill for 6-7 minutes on each side.


  • In a frying pan for 6-7 minutes on each side.


  • On the barbecue for 6-7 minutes on each side.

Make the herb mayonnaise

  • While the burgers are cooking, make the herb mayonnaise.
  • Put the mayonnaise (4 tbsp), herbs (a small handful of fresh mint leaves, a small handful of fresh coriander, the leaves from a couple of sprigs of fresh thyme) and the zest of ¼ of a lemon into a bowl.
  • Blitz with a hand blender until the herbs are finely chopped and evenly distributed in the mayonnaise.
  • Season with salt to taste.
