Paleo Greek Lamb Burgers are perfect for a weekend barbecue!
I mean, come on. Just look at that egg yolk and that juicy lamb.
Greek food is one of my favorite cuisines ever! If I ever go to Greece, I would probably be more about the food than the ancient history . . . and I feel no shame about that. Greek food is the best!
We established that Greek food is the best, but what happens when you combine cuisines? A Greek twist on the classic American burger can only be a good thing, especially when the burger is topped with a fried egg. Seriously, fried eggs make everything taste better. I am a wholehearted supporter of the #putaneggonit trend!
So, let’s dissect these Paleo Greek Lamb Burgers. First, we have a fun riff on traditional Greek lemon potatoes: Spiralized Lemon Potato “Buns!” The potato strings are tossed with an egg (as a binder), mustard, fresh lemon juice and garlic to make the perfect bottoms for our burgers.
Next, a thick layer of hummus! (duh.) I made a Paleo hummus out of cauliflower, and it was delicious! Believe it or not, it didn’t taste like cauliflower at all. Unfortunately, I went and lost my recipe for this hummus. <— insert sobbing face emoji. We’ll see if it ends up on the blog; I still have my photos (which turned out really well, by the way — it’s such a shame that I lost the recipe!). If I find it, I’ll post it.
On top of the hummus, we have our delicious, juicy lamb burgers. Look how thick they are! On top of the burgers sits a pile of fresh, crunchy vegetables: cucumber, tomato, red onion, & herbs doused in lemon juice. I finished off this masterpiece with a scattering of green olives, a crumble of feta, and a crispy fried egg. Feel free to omit the feta if you want to make it perfectly Paleo and dairy-free!
Paleo diet + Greek food + Juicy lamb + American burger = Paleo Greek Lamb Burgers!
Do you really need anything else to convince you to make these burgers?
