DELICIOUS

Description

This recipe is masterminded by my husband Saul. He is in charge of the grill and this is one of my favorite meals.

I am a huge fan of lamb and using it to make the patty takes a simple burger to a whole new level. It’s bold and decadent and better than any burger you have ever had.

If you are not a fan of lamb you can substitute ground beef or turkey instead but the lamb is what makes it special. Trust me!!

The caramelized onions and grilled pineapples add sweetness and the chilli gives it a kick.

I make this for weeknight dinners and when we are having friends over for a BBQ. My guests love assembling their own burgers. For those that want a low carb version you can leave out the bun, but you only live once. Food is made to be enjoyed.

I look forward to hearing all your feedback and suggestions.
Happy grilling xxx Chef MM
