Stuffed Lamb Burgers


We are taking lamb burgers up a notch with this recipe that you will for sure want to try! Stuffed with mozzarella with the sweetness of preserves and peppery taste of arugula makes this recipe so delicious.


  • 1-1.3 lbs Up North Heritage Farm Ground Lamb (Order HERE)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • pepper
  • 3-4 slices of fresh mozzarella (You can find it at most stores/costco sliced in a log)
  • fresh arugula. (Ours is from a favorite local farm Undertoe Farm)
  • apricot preserves or jam/preserves of choice (fig or dates jam would work)
  • Balsamic Vinegar (I highly recommend Fustini's Riserva - find it HERE)
  • brioche buns


  1. Mix salt, garlic powder and pepper with ground lamb.
  2. Divide meat into 3 equal parts.
  3. Form meat into patties around 1 slice of mozzarella. Make sure it is sealed around cheese.
  4. Cook the meat on the grill or over medium on the stovetop. Cook until desired doneness, 145º F is medium rare, 160º F is medium, 170º F is well done. An instant read meat thermometer is your friend!
  5. Throw the buns on the grill the last minute to heat up and place the lamb burger on the bun when done.
  6. Top with a dollop of apricot preserves, a handful of arugula and top with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
  7. Enjoy!
