    Best lamb burgers ever. Served with tzatziki. They are our new favourite burger.

    So easy, and delicious on the barbeque. I used the recommended amount of rosemary, and didn't find it overpowering. Will try with flat breads and mint mayo as recommended by another commenter - sounds divine!

    Made these as a change from beef burgers and they were totally gorgeous really impressed with them and even the hubby agreed! Better than beef as they were so much more succulent! we did them in flat breads with mint mayo! Definately worth a go they are so quick and easy these will become a regular for us!

    These are some of the tastiest burgers I've ever tried. I found these very tasty and very filling. I put much more Rosemary in than stated and I found that wasn't over-powering but tasty and I also didn't crush the garlic but I chopped it. They only took around 25 mins to make and cook in total so much quicker to make than stated. Very, Very tasty!

    Really rather yummy, used twice as much rosemary as stated and it still wasn't very rosemary intense.

    These were very easy to make and succulent. I halved the rosemary as I thought the taste would be too strong but when we tried them, I think it would have been okay with the 4tsp.
