I love summer. Living in Canada means that we get very few months of hot weather; generally it’s 10 months of winter and then 2 months of construction. But nevertheless, we DO get some nice days, and I try to take advantage of it. This means grilling and BBQ-ing and chilling outside by a pool. Lucky for me, plenty of my friends are up for this. One of my friends, Jordan, has a pool at her parent’s place, and we spent an afternoon hanging out and making lunch. On the menu included a pear and candied pecan salad, lamb burgers, and apple crisp.
- 1 lb ground lamb
- half an onion (we used red, but I’ve also done it with white), diced
- several cloves of garlic, minced (I don’t remember how many I used, but I love garlic, so a liberal amount)
- salt and pepper
- ground coriander
- 1 egg
Take all the ingredients and mix well. You can adjust the seasonings to your taste; we found that lamb really takes spice well and we could really tasted the cumin-it was delicious! We just eyed it and threw in what we had on hand. Form the lamb into 4 patties. We grilled them on the BBQ and didn’t even have to garnish them with anything, they were so tasty. I did this again a week later and didn’t have coriander, but that was fine. I just used cumin, and it tasted fabulous!
I hope everyone is enjoying summer as much as I am!
