A Better Burger

Ample Bites has found that a 50/50 mixture of ground lamb and lean (95/5) ground beef makes the most flavorful burger. Top that burger with some blue cheese, a grilled onion and some crumbles of bacon and you’ve got burger nirvana.

Better Burger
(Mark Kelly, 2013)

Serves 4

1/2 pound ground lamb
1/2 pound lean ground beef (95/5)
Extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
4 hamburger buns

Preheat grill to high.

Mix beef and lamb and form 4 patties. Drizzle the patties with olive oil and season both sides with salt and pepper. Bring the patties to room temperature while the grill preheats.

Grill the burgers for 3 to 4 minutes until they release from the grates. Turn burners to low. Flip the burgers and grill for another 3 minutes for medium-rare. While the burgers are finishing, toast the buns.

Let burgers stand for 5 minutes before serving.
