Roasted red pepper mayo

1 red bell pepper

1 cup mayo

2 cloves garlic

2 tsp fresh lemon juice

1 tsp kosher salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

Ultimate Grilled Lamb Burger

2 lb ground lamb

1 jalapeño, seeded and minced

6 Scallions, minced

2 Tbsp mint leaves, minced

2 Tbsp dill, minced

3 cloves garlic, minced

Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste

4 slices Manchego cheese

1 cup baby arugula

1 red onion, sliced

1 large ripe tomato, sliced

4 Brioche buns


When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to High and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Add the lamb, jalapeño, scallions, mint, dill, garlic, salt, and pepper to mixing bowl. Mix to combine.

Form the lamb mixture into 4 to 8 ounce patties about ¾" inch thick. Set aside.

Place the red bell pepper on preheated grill and cook for 20 minutes turning a quarter turn every 5 minutes or until it has charred a bit around the whole pepper. 

Remove the pepper from the grill and place in a large zip top bag and seal. After about 10 minutes, remove pepper from bag, cut in half, remove seeds and peel off skin.

Add the roasted red pepper, mayo, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper to a food processor and process until smooth. Set aside.

Place the lamb burgers on the grill still set to High, and cook for 5 minutes per side for medium or until desired doneness. The last minute of cooking, place your buns on the grill to toast and top burgers with a slice of cheese.

Spread sides of toasted buns with mayo, add burgers to buns and top with arugula, onion and tomato. Serve with your favorite sides. Enjoy!
