Keto Lettuce Wrapped Lamb Burgers

9 ratings

Beef gets all of the love when it comes to burgers, but it’s time for lamb’s time to shine in this dish! This ground lamb is combined with fresh herbs and spices before getting a nice crust from pan-searing. Wrap the lamb burgers in your favorite type of lettuce, top with a yogurt sauce and dig in! Romaine was used for this recipe, but butter lettuce or iceberg would also work well!

    What kind of yogurt is everyone using? It’s hard for me to find anything under 7 grams

      Scrumptious! Will be making this regularly. I did not wrap the burgers, just served them on top of a small bed of romaine. Our burgers were in the oven 7 mins before I temped them at over 145F (145 is the general recommendation for lamb burgers.) Will probably estimate 5 mins next time. I used a cast iron skillet and had a quick but good sear on them going into the oven. Also we did use mint instead of dill in the yogurt sauce.

          This was good. I added little bit of grated cucumber to the yogurt sauce. I wasn’t able to get lamb so I used ground beef. Will definitely get the lamb next time. This dish had all of my favorite flavors
