Have you guys tried lamb burgers yet? It seems like lamb has become more of a mainstream option these days, and I’m seeing it more often on restaurant menus and available for purchase in stores like Whole Foods. Our local Whole Foods even has pre-made lamb patties that you can purchase – now that’s easy! If you haven’t tried it yet, these lamb burgers with rosemary pesto sauce are the perfect introduction to this flavorful meat.
It’s nice to have a different option other than our regular ground beef burgers to mix in when we want something fresh. Ground lamb typically has a little more fat than the ground beef we eat, so the lamb burgers are kind of like a rich, flavorful alternative to ground beef.
We decided to spice these burgers up with a rosemary pesto sauce because, well – why the hell not? Rosemary is a perfect pairing with lamb. Plus, I like having the leftover pesto sauce in the fridge to use as a dip for veggies and plantain chips, so you really can’t go wrong there.
Rich and flavorful, these lamb burgers with rosemary pesto sauce are a gourmet meal that can be on your plate in under 20 minutes. Paleo + Whole30 friendly.
