Tiny little burgers, sweetened with dried apricots. Perfect MamaBake fare!
1/4 to 1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 red onion
500g lamb mince
1 garlic clove
100g diced dried apricots
2 T chopped parsley
Using a food processor or strong blender, whiz the apricots, onions, garlic and parsley to form a sticky, paste like mix. (You can of course chop away happily by hand until the mix is fine enough).
Turn the mix into a bowl and add the lamb mince and egg.
Add the almond meal gradually, mixing as you go, until the mix forms a fairly stiff dough.
Shape into approx 20 little patties and place on a plate (or two!) in the fridge to set.
*If freezing uncooked, divvy up the patties into the quantities you like and label. Freeze in single layers in freezer bags, or in a container – being sure to put a piece of cling film or baking paper between each layer.
To cook: heat a little oil in a fry pan and cook for around 5 minutes each side or until cooked through.
Serve as you would a regular burger, or as part of a salad plate. Perfect for little lunches around the kitchen table!
