Prosciutto Lamb Burgers


Wah wah wah wah. You’ve seen the title of this post, so do you really care what I’m writing here? I mean…prosciutto. Lamb. Burgers. (And also Basil! Sun-dried Tomatoes! Romano!)

Given my background, I’m obviously a huge fan of lamb, but I reeeeally love it in burger form. It just can’t be beat. Unless you wrap it in pork, I suppose. These burgers are juicy on the inside, and the prosciutto provides a nice salty, crispy bite on top. I would have never thought to include sun-dried tomatoes in a burger patty, but they work so well here, especially with the basil and balsamic vinegar. Seriously guys, these burgers are drool-worthy and awesome.

The original recipe doesn’t call for cheese but personally, I think every burger is better with cheese. I made these a while back, before going off dairy, so I added provolone to them. You don’t really need the cheese, though, with every other wonderful flavor going on.

Prosciutto Lamb Burgers

  • I need to hide this post from the boyfriend before there’s a mutiny! He would kill for one of these.

  • You had me at “lamb” then you went ahead and added “prosciutto”
    I so wish the husband liked lamb!

    Yum, Elly!

  • I think I’ve found a way to get Patrick to warm up to lamb [aside from gyros lol]. This looks great and I’m loving the combination of lamb & prosciutto!

  • Oh wow. This looks incredible!

  • Lamb and prosciutto are literally my husband’s two favorite foods (he’s half Greek!) and I adore them as well…this is on the menu next week for sure!

  • I got excited when I saw this since lamb is on my menu for next week and I haven’t figured out what I want to do with it yet. But then I realized what I have in my freezer is rack of lamb, not ground lamb!

  • Lamb….mmmm. No need to say more, but of course I will still read the text in your post!

  • I had some doubts about adding so much stuff to something as awesome as lamb is on its own, but I know you like lamb as much as I do, so I trust you. And it was so good! I love the prosciutto and lamb together.
