Blue Cheese Infused Lamb Burgers

Serving Time Icon 20 min
Serves Number Icon Serves 4

You can always pile your burgers high with slices of local Ontario cheese, but tucking rich, crumbled Ontario blue cheese into your burger mixture unlocks the flavour on the grill. The combination of blue cheese and lamb is worth it. Serve this burger on your favourite bun with sweet potato fries or on a bed of peppery arugula for a wonderfully juicy lunch or dinner. Napkins are a must.

Prep 10 MIN

Cook 10 MIN



Step 1

In a small dry skillet, toast fennel and chili flakes over medium heat for about 1 minute or until fragrant. Let cool slightly, then grind using a spice or coffee grinder or alternatively, crush in a mortar and pestle.


Step 2

Scrape into a large bowl and add lamb, parsley, cornmeal, thyme, salt and pepper. Using your hands, mix together until well combined.


Step 3

Divide into 4 equal balls.


Step 4

Tuck crumbled blue cheese into each lamb ball, then flatten and shape into a 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick patty. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheet or platter.

Step 5

Preheat grill to medium high heat. Place burgers on greased grill and grill for about 4 minutes per side or until no longer pink inside.

Tip: Make-ahead, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
