Greek Lamb and Fennel Burgers recipe

These beautifully flavoured burgers are perfect for serving with garlic mayonnaise (225g mayonnaise with 3 minced garlic cloves), a seeded burger bun and some red onion rings. They're great to serve at a BBQ as an alternative to the usual beef burgers and the addition of fennel gives them a wonderfully unusual flavour.


  • 900g minced lamb
  • 1 bulb of fennel
  • 4 tbsp. breadcrumbs
  • 2 shallots
  • Pinch salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano


  1. Finely chop the shallots and the fennel bulb.

  2. Mix together the lamb mince, fennel, shallots, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper and oregano.

  3. Shape burgers from the mixture – make them at least 2cm thick.

  4. Cook the burgers on a hot BBQ for 3-5 minutes on each side or in a frying pan for around the same amount of time. Check that they are not pink in the middle before serving.

This recipe makes around 8-10 burgers depending on how big you make them.
