Lamb meat is an excellent source of high quality protein and also provides a different flavour profile than regular beef burgers. Lamb paired with blue cheese is a classic combination as both ingredients provide a bold, rich flavour. In this recipe you can either choose to stuff the burgers with the blue cheese butter or place it on the top of the burger patty one minute before taking off the grill. Either way you are sure to wow your guests with this tasty burger.
