I love taking inspiration from friends and family when I’m thinking of new meals to make. Last summer I frequently spent weekends at a friend’s house, drinking raspberry mojitos and having BBQ’s in the sunshine. I loved how her and her husband always served the meat with lemon squeezed over, with feta cheese and pita bread on the side. My friend made these amazing feta-filled patties and while I didn’t get the exact recipe off her this one is inspired by hers.
You will need;
300 – 400g Lamb Mince (or beef mince)
Juice of 1 Lemon
2 t Oregano
1 piece of bread – toasted and cut into small cubes (I like multigrain)
1 t Cumin
1 small onion, finely chopped
Feta Cheese – cut into cubes
1. Add all ingredients to a bowl.
2. Mix everything together with clean hands, or wear gloves.
3. Fold a small palm-full of mixture around a cube of feta until it is covered.
4a. Place on a baking tray and bake at 180°C about 15 minutes, or until just cooked.
4b. Cook on a BBQ until just cooked through.
I serve mine in toasted pita bread, with hummus, salad and a favourite creamy dip. The lemon and feta add a nice freshness to what would otherwise be boring old BBQ patties!
