  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup diced new onion (or a 1/4 cup of diced regular onion)
  • 3 tablespoons diced green garlic (or two cloves of diced regular garlic)
  • 1- pound ground lamb preferably organic and free range (tastes better… seriously)
  • 1/2-3/4 cup your favorite bbq sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 4 hamburger buns


  • Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C).
  • Prepare four foil cups by cutting a 12″x12″ piece of foil into four equal pieces and shaping them around the opening of a drinking glass. Place all four foil cups in a glass baking dish that’s large enough to hold them all without squashing them.
  • Heat olive oil in a small pan, then add onion and garlic, sauteing until soft. Strain oil and place onion and garlic in a medium sized bowl. Stir in bbq sauce, salt, and pepper until well mixed. Add in lamb, and squish together with your hands until well incorporated.
  • Divide the lamb into four parts, forming into patties and placing each one in a foil cup. Cook in oven until burgers reach an internal temperature of 155°F (68°C), about 25 minutes. Remove from heat, let rest for five minutes. Drain fat from foil cups, and serve on a bun with dressing of your choice (I personally like them straight).
