Lamb and Kawakawa Herb Burgers with Lemon Feta

Method

Remove Silver Fern Farms Lamb and Kawakawa Herb Burgers from the fridge and packaging and allow to bloom for 10 minutes at room temperature.

Place feta and crème fraîche, lemon juice and chopped mint into the bowl of a food processor.

Process for 2-3 minutes, until mixture is thick and creamy. Season to taste, then set aside while you prepare the burgers.

Preheat a barbecue on high. Brush the burgers with olive oil then cook for 3½ minutes each side, or until cooked through (cook for 4 minutes each side if cooking on the stovetop).

Cover loosely on a plate to rest for 5 minutes.

Spread whipped feta onto each toasted bun base.

Add lettuce leaves, 2 slices of tomato and sliced cucumber.

Add the burger and some dill sprigs.

Spread more whipped feta on the underside of the bun top and place on top of the burger.
