Lamb_Patties_1000This pattie mix is easy and very tasty. You can also use it to make meat calls or koftas.

Ingredients   

400g (1lb) grass fed (ground) lamb, beef or pork mince

2 slices streaky bacon, diced fine
½ brown onion chopped finely
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 Gluten Free cup bread crumbs
1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley

1 tbsp fresh chopped rosemary
3 tbsp grated carrot
1 tbsp fresh chopped basil
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
100g (4oz) taste cheese, grated finely (optional, leave out for DF)  

2 -3 tbsp olive oil

Method  

These can be made ahead and stored covered in the fridge.  

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except the oil. Using your hands, mix throughout, but gently.  I use my thumb when I am mixing as it allows me to push the ingredients into the mix to make sure its all distributed evenly.   

Lightly oil the palms of your hands, and shape the mixture into one large ball. Turn out onto a chopping board and cut the ball into 4 even sized balls. Cut each in half again. 

Shape into 25mm (1 inch) thick patties. I use an egg ring to shape the patties so they are all uniform in size and cook off evenly. 

Cook on your heated BBQ (grill) for 4 minutes on each side or until they are done to your desired doneness.
