Mini Lamb Burgers

My husband loves this recipe for mini lamb burgers. They're great for a light dinner or a hearty appetizer. Ground lamb makes really flavorful sliders, but you can use ground beef if you prefer. —Evelyn Rothwell, Los Angeles, California

    8 sliders


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • 1 medium onion, halved and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 teaspoons butter, divided
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 8 Hawaiian sweet rolls, halved

  • In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, maple syrup and mustard; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the cheese, salt and pepper. Crumble lamb over mixture and mix well. Shape into eight patties.
  • In a large skillet, saute onion in 1 tablespoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter until tender. Add vinegar; cook 1 minute longer. Remove from the pan and keep warm.
  • In the same skillet, cook patties in remaining oil and butter over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear.
  • Spread mayonnaise mixture over roll bottoms; top each with a burger and onion mixture and if desired, arugula. Replace roll tops.
