Food Recipes Cheesy Lamb Burgers With Herb Mayo 3.8 (12) If you’re looking for a quick dinner and a fresh take on burger night, look no further. These simple lamb burgers come together quickly with just a few ingredients. A salt-and-pepper patty gets quickly grilled, then topped with a gooey slice of Havarti cheese. All that’s left to do is stir onion-y chives and peppery basil into some mayo and you’ve got dinner. To bulk it up, serve with roasted sweet potato wedges, which play well with the juicy lamb and salty cheese, or throw together a quick tomato-cucumber salad. Pair with a tart white wine that can cut through the dish’s richness. By Robby Melvin Robby Melvin Robby Melvin is professional chef and Test Kitchen director for Southern Living Magazine.
