Mediterranean Style Grilled Lamb Burgers

Ground lamb is a really great option for Lean and Green Meals. In fact, all lamb is a great options! Lean, delicious and easy to cook, lamb is a great protein source and a good break from the every day.

Here, I prepare Hudson Valley grass fed, ground lamb in a traditional Mediterranean style using the flavors of basil, marjoram, garlic and oregano. Combining these intense flavors with the sweet, delicate ground meat makes for an AMAZING burger that not only cooks fast and easy, but is super delicious.

To make a complete meal, I paired this with my Lemon & Dill Cucumber Salad and some steamed green beans.

If you prefer, you can substitute other ground meats instead of the lamb for sure.  In this recipe, ground chicken, ground beef, bison or even ostrich would be a delicious alternative for your Lean and Green Meal.

Super easy, quick and delicious this low carb meal is great as a Lean and Green Recipe, an HCG recipe, Weight Watchers or keto recipe.
