Lamb burgers

Revisiting family favourites

I’ve been revisiting recipes that have been some of my old school recipes and family favourites that were our staples when we got started as clean eaters. I first posted this recipe in 2016, at that time, the kids were fussy, vegetables had to be hidden and disguised, and there was no potential for intense flavours or spice.
Times (thankfully) have changed, the kids have grown (like man-sized grown), and they now enjoy a wide range of foods. Things like vegetables are enjoyed, spice and chilli are consumed without complaint, and new ingredients are tried without tantrums.
As the kids have grown, my recipes have changes organically to meet their palates and preferences, I’ve updated this recipe because of that, but fear not, all I have done is make it a little bit better.
The original suitable be kids, and less developed palates is at the bottom of the post.

Takeaway alternative

We all love a naughty takeaway, but we can all live without the extra calories and the expanding waistlines. You don’t need to live without your takeaway, swap it out for a delicious and healthier fakeaway. I always love a good burger, they are my guilty pleasure. These burgers tick the box for a great burger without too much naughtiness. The crumbled cheese adds a great texture to the burgers and delivers some extra flavour., I love to serve these burgers on a lettuce bun with some cucumber slices.
