Make everyone feel special when you serve them this treat. It’s not every day that you’d serve lamb, but it’s a nice change from beef and turkey. The lamb provides all the juices you need, so there’s no need for cooking oil.

    Delicious! Made exactly 6 nicely-sized burgers. Subbed the shallots for a little red onion on hand and served with mixed greens and a side of Mediterranean orzo with blistered cherry tomatoes, Kalamata olives, capers, and sundried tomatoes -- no bun necessary. Great for meal prep Sunday; just changed out the sides for another meal later in the week. I will be making this again.
