Unlike other burgers, this one probably needs cutlery!

Preparation: 15 mins 
Cooking: 20 mins

Ingredients to serve 6-8

  • 500g minced lamb 
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 small green pepper, diced into small cubes
  • 350ml passata
  • 4 tbsp ketchup (normal or spicy)
  • 1 tbsp Worcester sauce
  • 1 level tbsp brown sugar (optional)  
  • 1 tsp. strong mustard
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Tabasco, optional
  • 8 small hamburger rolls (or 6 large ones)
  • 6 to 8 small slices cheddar cheese
  • Pour the oil into a large pan and add the lamb, onion, garlic and green pepper. Fry over a high heat, break up the mixture with a spatula to stop large clumps forming.
  • After browning well, add the passata, ketchup, Worcester sauce, brown sugar, mustard, and 100ml of water. Blend together and leave to simmer for 20 minutes over a gentle heat. Season with salt and black pepper and a little Tabasco, if you wish.
  • Heat the bread rolls in the oven or in a toaster. Fill them with the mixture, add a slice of cheddar and put a lid on.
  • Serve with potato wedges and a nice salad.

Tip: unlike other burgers, this one should be eaten with a knife and fork!
