aubergine, Burger, moussaka
small red onion
about 8mm wide
brioche burger buns
red onion rings
Preheat grill to fairly hot (not highest setting).
Place minced lamb in a bowl along with the tomato paste, onion and garlic.
Sprinkle on the cinnamon, allspice, oregano, salt and pepper.
Use your hand to mix the ingredients together thoroughly.
Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions.
Shape each portion into a ball and flatten to the size of your burger bun.
Place burgers on a grill pan lined with foil and grill for about 14 minutes turning occasionally until cooked through.
Meanwhile heat 2 tbsp of oil in a griddle pan and fry the aubergine slices for about 3 minutes a side until golden and cooked through.
Place a slice of Cheddar over each burger and grill until cheese melts. You can also add your burger buns to the grill pan if you wish to have them toasted (keep an eye on them)!
Finally assemble your burger in the bun using the rocket leaves, onion rings, tomato slices, moussaka burger and slice of griddled aubergine.
Serve with ketchup or tzatziki.
Handy tip: pop the burger mixture into a large round pastry cutter and flatten with with your fingers for the perfect round burger.
