Lamb and Halloumi Burgers

A nice change from the normal beef burger, this combination is simply delicious and absolutely bursting with flavor. The lamb mince patty is filled with grated halloumi and fresh mint then served with a crunchy red cabbage slaw inside a crisp lettuce leaf. We all know lamb and mint is a winning flavor match but add salty chewy halloumi into the mix and it takes it to a whole new level. The raw red cabbage slaw adds a satisfying crunch and a lettuce leaf wrap means you can pick up and enjoy this like a regular burger.

Lamb and Halloumi Burgers

Halloumi is a cheese from Cyrus that’s traditionally made with sheep and goat milk. It can be a great alternative for those who are sensitive to cow dairy. Halloumi has a high melting point so it grills beautifully and holds its shape, which also makes it great for binding burgers together!

This red cabbage slaw is a little different from coleslaw coated in mayonnaise. It’s simply mixed together with extra virgin olive oil and apple cider vinegar, which brings an extra freshness for summer and would make a great side for other BBQ dishes.
