The Latest Burger Trend: Are You On It?

Zagat has noticed a trend: the lamb burger is showing up on menus across the country. This is a trend we’ve been hoping would catch on, because we love lamb burgers! In fact, we’re eyeing the lamb confit burger at Racines NY on the Zagat list. It cooks for 12 long hours with olive oil, star anise, bay leaf, and thyme – now that’s tender!

It’s easy to make juicy lamb burgers at home – especially with our ground lamb. It’s also great for lamb meatballs, lamb chili, lamb meatloaf, lamb kofta kebabs, lamb on pita pizza … anything beef can do, lamb can do better. That’s assuming you’re a fan of lamb. We sure are!

Spicy lamb sliders with grilled halloumi.

One of our favorite ways to enjoy lamb is in these Moroccan-spiced lamb sliders.  In this recipe we combine our merguez sausage and ground lamb, then top with grilled halloumi cheese and a harissa yogurt sauce. They’re perfect for a party.


Our grilled Greek-style lamb burgers are packed with flavor from fresh herbs, feta, tomato jam, and a balsamic glaze. So easy to make, they’re a great alternative to basic beef burgers.
