Lamb Burgers

I raised sheep for an Future Farmers of America project in High School and can remember the fine Dinners my family made with the lambs we raised.
Here is one great recipe for any occasion that may come to one's mind,like Easter Dinner.

Lamb Burgers with Roquefort Cheese

Lamb is the ideal meat for burgers, as it has loads of flavor. Add bits of beef fat and place little pockets of Roquefort cheese inside each patty. This lamb recipe is a real treat when served with mayonnaise,jalapeno peppers and fried onions.

Ingredients;1 lb ground lamb
1 lb ground beef
1 egg
1 onion, finely diced
Salt and pepper
Handful rosemary leaves,cut thin
1 cup cracker crumbs
10 oz crumbly Roquefort cheese
2 onions finely sliced
In a large bowl, combine ground meats, egg, diced onion, salt and pepper, and rosemary. Mix well with your hands to combine.
Add cracker crumbs until the mixture binds together.

For each burger patty, grab a good handful of the meat mixture.
Divide in half and crumble about an ounce of blue cheese into the middle before shaping each patty.

Grill on high heat for three minutes per side for pink meat.

For garnish, gently fry the sliced onions over a medium-high heat with a few sprigs of rosemary until brown and crispy.
Garnish each burger with onions and nice jalapeno slices..
