My fascination for burgers continues here with a freshly minced lamb patty, grilled and topped with tzatziki sauce and crumbled feta cheese. I serve mine on a brioche bun while Mrs Messy Benches has two grilled mushrooms for a gluten free option.

Lamb cutlets aren’t cheap but it’s easy to see/taste why. When perfectly grilled (medium rare for us) they are packed with flavour, juicy and tender.

Now this is a sandwich! Sure, it may take a bit of work but it’s well worth it. If you ask your butcher to leave the shank on the shoulder you’ll find this cooks in under half the time as the rest of the shoulder. This just happens to match up with lunchtime which is perfect for satisfying the craving you get sitting around all day waiting for the lamb to cook.

There’s nothing quite like getting your hands into a slow cooked lamb shoulder and pulling out the pockets of meaty goodness. I am a big fan of lamb and it often makes an appearance at our dinner table.
