Lamb Burgers
Heat up your grill. Once hot, throw 4 ears of corn on (unshucked).

1 lb. ground lamb
1 diced pepper (use what you have: jalepeno, bell pepper, etc.)
1T fresh thyme
1T fresh oregano
Can substitute other herbs (basil, parsley, savory, cilantro, etc.)
1 clove minced garlic
1 splash hot sauce
1 minced shallot (or 1-2T minced onion)
salt and pepper

Mix together and form 4 patties. Grill for 3-4 minutes per side. Add cheese if desired.

Marinated tomato and onion
Slice 2 large fresh tomatoes (homegrown preferred, heirloom if possible). Slice 1/2 of a sweet onion. Layer tomato and onion. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Let sit until burgers are cooked.

Top burgers with sliced, marinated tomato and onion. Serve on a fresh rosemary or sourdough roll. Serve with grilled corn on the cob and side salad. Enjoy!
