2tablespoonsextra virgin olive oil
1/3cupdiced new onion(or a 1/4 cup of diced regular onion)
3tablespoonsdiced green garlic(or two cloves of diced regular garlic)
1-poundground lambpreferably organic and free range (tastes better… seriously)
1/2-3/4cupyour favorite bbq sauce
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).
