Place the minced lamb into a bowl. With your hands mix in all the herbs, spices and sweetener ensuring that it is fully incorporated.
Mash the egg into the meat and spice mix, cover with cling film and chill for at least 20 minutes in the fridge. This can be left over night if you’re prepping a meal for the next day.
Take the meat from the fridge and divide into 4. Make each quarter into a ball and then flatten until approximately 1 cm thick. Heat a non-stick frying pan on a moderate heat and cook each burger for around 4 minutes on each side. You will not need to add any additional fat to the frying pan as the burgers will contain enough to stop the meat from sticking.

Hey Charlie, thanks so much for your message, great idea about freezing the burgers ready for next time!
DebbieThursday 25th March 2021
Hi is the amount of mince correct for 4 burgers, 200g doesn’t seem enough
HollyMonday 29th March 2021

Was looking for a ‘winning recipe’ to enter in our neighbours Burger-Off competition. This won hands down and was a huge hit with everyone. Added some breadcrumbs and used fresh garlic instead of granules. Served in a flatbread with a slice of haloumi cheese, grilled aubergine and pea shoots. Also did a lemon, mint yoghurt dressing. Will most definitely do these again. DELICIOUS!!

Sounds absolutely delish! And well done on the win ????
DebraThursday 20th June 2019
Hi what can you use instead of Baharet spice please can’t find it in the shops
Emma TThursday 20th June 2019
Baharat is made up of a mixture of spices – allspice, black pepper, cardamon, cloves, coriander seed, cumin, nutmeg, turmeric, saffron, ginger and chilli/paprika. Most large supermarkets stock it, or you could purchase it online ????
VickyTuesday 19th February 2019
