Burgers with mint sound a bit odd, but they are truly delicious. At least I think so. My little brother hates them, but he also hates strawberries, so he just has bad taste. It is an easy recipe that is (almost) impossible to mess up, yet it adds a little something extra to eating a burger.

What you need:

-500g ground lamb

-1 garlic clove (but let’s be honest, more garlic is always better) (minced)

-2 table spoons of mint (sliced)

-1 shallot (minced)

-Pinch of sea salt

-Lemon zest Olive oil

-4 burger buns

-Some more mint for on top of the burger to make it look all nice

-2 Bowls (1 if you just buy the tzatziki, or 1 but then you need to clean if halfway through and that just seems like too much effort)

-Frying pan

For the ambitious cook (although it doesn’t really count as cooking but that’s just a detail) I will add a tzatziki recipe at the end, but you can also just use store bought (self-made does taste better though).

Now what you need to do for the burgers:

Step 1: Chuck the ground lamb, garlic, lemon zest, mint, and salt in one of your bowls.

Step 2: mix all of it together, until it is all evenly divided.

Step 3: Divide it into 4 balls and flatten them till they look like burgers.

Step 4: Grab your frying pan and put it on high heat, with a bit of olive oil in there as well.

Step 5: Chuck the burgers gently in the pan and cook them for about 5 to 6 minutes per side till they are nicely brown. Keep them flipping while doing this. (if your making tzatziki, this is a good point to start with that as well).

Step 6: Toast the buns. This can be done in the oven or in a frying pan.

Step 7: Place the burgers on the buns, put the tzatziki on there, and top it all off with a singular mint leave to make it look all nice. And voila. A delicious burger for you to enjoy.

What you need (Tzatziki)

- 1 cucumber

- More mint (add to your heart's desire. Only you know how much mint is enough. I recommend like 50g but what do I know.)

- 1 garlic clove (again, could be more. Who am I to stop you?)

- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice (use the lemon that you used for lemon zest in the burger)

- 250ml Greek yogurt Pinch of sea salt

What you need to do for the tzatziki:

Step 1: Cut the cucumber very small. Same goes for the garlic, and the mint.

Step 2: Chuck literally all of it in a big bowl.

Step 3: Mix it. That is it. Now you have tzatziki.

So take this knowledge and impress your friends with your out of this world cooking. Have a little salad on the side and you have a dinner for all to envy.
