  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • Ingredients for lamb burgers
  • 500g lamb mince

  • 1/2 a small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed

  • 100g natural yoghurt
  • 1/4 of a cucumber, finely chopped

Method

  1. 1Preheat the oven to 220°C/Fan 200°C/Gas 7.
  2. 2Make the pickled cucumber by cutting the cucumber in half lengthways then peel into long strips using a vegetable peeler. Place into a small bowl with the rest of the ingredients and mix. Set aside to pickle.
  3. 3Cut the potatoes into wedges. Place them in a large bowl with the olive oil, herbs, season with salt and pepper and mix to combine.
  4. 4Place the potatoes on a large baking tray and cook in the preheated oven for approximately 30 minutes. Turn them over halfway through.
  5. 5While the potatoes are in the oven, make the lamb burgers. Place all the burger ingredients into a large bowl and use your hands to combine them together. Divide the mixture into 12 small balls and form into mini burgers.
  6. 6Fry the mini lamb burgers in a drizzle of olive oil until nicely browned on both sides.
  7. 7Make the tzatziki by mixing all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
  8. 8Once the potatoes are cooked, place them on a large serving plate.
  9. 9Top with the mini lamb burgers, sliced red onion and crumbled feta cheese.
  10. 10Sprinkle over fresh chopped parsley and serve with the pickled cucumber and tzatziki.
