This slider has a Mediterranean flavor, I used ground lamb that I mixed with just minced garlic, deep fried thinly sliced eggplant, made a fresh citrusy herb sauce with parsley, mint, garlic and lemon and then added sliced tomato. It's a delicious burger, you can play with the additions and make it your own also.
NOTE: you can make the fresh herb sauce the night before you are making the sliders, it is even better sitting overnight or hours before serving.

Makes 12 sliders

Burgers, eggplant and herb sauce:

  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • 1 large clove garlic minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 italian eggplant peeled and thinly sliced
  • light olive oil for frying
  • 1 small bunch parsley large stems removed and finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped mint
  • juice of one lemon
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Mix lamb with garlic and salt and pepper, form into small patties and cover and refrigerate until you are ready to grill them. Peel and slice eggplant (this is when a mandoline comes in handy), while you are doing that heat a few inches of light olive oil in a sauce pan or cast iron skillet until it reaches 375 degrees. Fry a few slices of eggplant at a time until they are golden brown (don't crowd them while frying) Remove with slotted spoon and place on paper towel, sprinkle with a little sea salt if you like. Set aside (you can place in warm (170-200 degree) oven so they stay warm.
  2. Mix chopped parsley and mint with the minced garlic, lemon juice and olive oil and set aside. Heat grill pan on stove top or fire up the barbie to grill the burgers. I did it on the stove top. When burgers are done to the degree of doneness you like, wipe out pan of excess fat and grill the buns. While you are doing that slice some tomato.

Putting together the burger:

  • lamb burger
  • herb sauce
  • eggplant chips
  • sliced tomato
  • grilled buns

This part is easy and you can layer how you like, what I did was lay a slice of tomato on the bun, slather with the herb sauce, lay burger on top of that and finish with a few slices of eggplant chips.
