Minted lamb burgers

These thick, juicy minted lamb burgers are the easiest you’ll ever make, plus they taste absolutely delicious that’s got to be a bonus right? The roasted sweet potato chips served alongside are the perfect match. I would classify myself as a certified lover of cheese and usually cannot have a burger without a slice, but this beauty needed no extra’s; it was pure perfection!
