Prosciutto Lamb Burgers

09

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.
