Arabian Lamb Burgers


Apologies for the name, the boys came up with it and it has stuck over the years!

The idea for these came from the flavours of a tagine but the need for spread in our household sometimes!

You will need to check the seasoning with salt, you may need more than a teaspoon to balance the prunes.


500g minced lamb

50-75g prunes, finely diced

3 spring onions, finely sliced

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground all spice

1/8 teaspoon ground chilli powder

1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped

salt and pepper


Combine the ingredients well and set aside for an hour or two if you have time.

Form into burgers, we made 10 mini burgers today or 4-6 regular sized.

Heat a non stick frying pan or BBQ plate over a medium to high flame.

Once hot add the burgers and cook on each side for around 4-5 mins to ensure they are cooked all the way through and crispy on the outside.

Serve in burger buns or lettuce leaves with a little yogurt dressing.
