Greek lamb and haloumi burgers - light and delicious!

Greek lamb and haloumi burgers

Years ago I remember standing at the bench shaping mince into patties to cook for my little guy when suddenly I felt a searing sting on my bottom followed by giggling when I yelped in pain.

He seemed to find biting pretty funny but I was in a real pickle.

I was covered in mince so I couldn’t touch him, he wouldn’t get down and the more I reacted the more he laughed and tried to bite me again.

Now add the closer… I was wearing elastic waisted pants.

So if you were a fly on the wall you would have seen me with a laughing baby hanging off my legs trying to bite me, with my pants around my knees and hands flying everywhere trying to get him to sit down.

Some days I think we could win big bucks in Funniest Home Videos.

You would think I would learn to do things near the sink so I can at least wash my hands and shake the attacker but it seems I never caught on to that kind of sensibility.

Luckily when I was shaping the mince for my Greek lamb and haloumi burgers I had no such problems.

My lunches when it was just me and my first little man at home were pretty boring but every few weeks we used to get treated to the husband working from home (now it’s every day!). 

I used to use it as an excuse/incentive to make something fancy for lunch.

The inspiration for these came from Maureen aka The Orgasmic Chef when she made the most perfect looking brioche buns.

They’re made in the Thermomix but I’m sure you could make them in a mixer.

To me they screamed burger bun.

I have no idea where the Greek came from but I was happy to dig out my authentic Greek plate for the occasion.

These burgers are nice and light and you can add lots of salad to make them super healthy.

I am pretty sure you could cook halloumi on the BBQ (maybe in a pan) so add these to your next BBQ, I insist.

The mince would also make pretty tasty meatballs dipped in the yoghurt sauce – perfect for holiday entertaining.

Enjoy!
