    Chargrilled lamb burger with macadamia aioli recipe

    A fresh, juicy way to get your burger fix – rich in flavour, light on fat

    Serves: 4


    500 g lamb mince

    1 brown onion, grated

    2 garlic cloves, crushed

    2 teaspoons ground lemon myrtle

    1 tablespoon mint jelly

    1 red chilli, seeded, finely diced

    1 tablespoon rosemary leaves, finely diced

    1 egg yolk

    1 cup macadamias, finely chopped

    2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley

    Salt and pepper to taste

    1/4 cup macadamia oil

    6 sourdough rolls, cut in half

    Macadamia aioli

    1 clove garlic salt and pepper

    1 egg yolk

    1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

    200-300 ml macadamia oil

    lemon juice to taste

    Rocket beetroot feta salad

    2 big handfuls of rocket

    100 g Greek feta, crumbled

    1 beetroot, cooked, peeled and thinly sliced

    1 tomato, thinly sliced


    1. For the burger, place all the ingredients, except the oil and rolls into a large bowl and mix with your hands until well combined. Divide the mixture into 6 patties. Cover and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.

    2. For the aioli, crush garlic and place in a bowl. Add a pinch of salt and pepper, the egg yolk and mustard and whisk until well combined. Add a few drops of oil, whisking constantly, until the mixture starts to thicken. Slowly pour in the remaining oil in a thin, steady stream, whisking constantly, until combined and the texture is thick and creamy. Add lemon juice 1 tablespoon at a time until the desired zing is reached, set aside.

    3. Preheat a chargrill or barbecue to a medium-high heat, brush the patties with macadamia oil and cook for 3-4 minutes each side or until cooked through. Toast the rolls and spread with macadamia aioli, top with lamb patties and the rocket, beetroot, feta salad.
