Well I have to say Weight Watchers have excelled themselves with this month’s magazine (April). This is a big hit with me. Okay I’ll admit that I did alter the recipe slightly but I think my additions make it 🙂 I couldn’t get mint leaves so I added 2 tsps of mint sauce. I also added 2 tsps of cumin powder and I also added 1 beaten egg to bind the patties. You will need to up the propoints of the recipe because of the egg. You could just keep to the original recipe also. I’ve just added the original recipe below.
10 minutes to prepare, 10 minutes to cook
23 propoints per recipe
11 propoints per serving
250g lean lamb mince
75g carrot, coarsely grated
60g light feta, crumbled
1/2 dried oregano
Few sprigs of fresh mint, leaves only, chopped roughly
Calorie controlled cooking spray
2x 40g mini pitta breads
Little gem lettuce
1. Mix together the mince, carrot, feta, oregano and mint in a bowl, season, and shape into 4 patties.
2. Mist a griddle pan or nonstick frying pan with cooking spray, add the burgers and cook for 2-3 minutes on either side. Leave to rest for 5 minutes, loosely covered.
3. To serve, lightly toast the pittas, slice the open and fill with lettuce. Add 2 burgers to each and top with the tomato.
Tip: if you can, make them some time in advance and chill them so that they set a bit better. If you make them and add them straight to the pan they do fall apart easily, the lesss turning you can do the better.
