Ultimate Lamb Sliders

  1. Warm a small amount of the lard or oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic, stirring occasionally to sweat for about 2 to 3 minutes until translucent. Transfer to a bowl to cool to room temperature for 5 minutes. 
  2. Add ground lamb, cooled onions and garlic, and remaining ingredients to a large mixing bowl and blend with gloved hands or a mixing spoon until well incorporated. Warm the pan from your onions and cook a small piece of the patty mix to test and adjust the seasoning as needed.  
  3. Divide the meat into 8 3-ounce slider patties.  
  4. Set the patties on a small baking pan in the freezer to set up for 15 minutes.  
  5. In the same frying pan, heat a small amount of fat or oil over medium-high heat. Remove patties from the freezer, place in pan to sear each side for about 2 minutes or until nicely browned crispy edges are visible. Once cooked, remove the patties from the heat to rest on a plate for 2 to 4 minutes. 
  6. Get creative with your slider set up to serve. Try ketchup, goat cheese, arugula, and heirloom tomatoes as we did here. Balsamic vinegar, garlic, and rosemary are always great compliments to lamb.  
  7. These patties also work great for a homemade version of gyros when served in pita bread with sliced cucumber, tzatziki, parsley, and mint.
