Low Carbo hydrate Greek Lamb Burgers Recipe


Paleo Lamb Burgers

Low Carbohydrate, Healthy Mediterranean Diet

Serve this at your next barbecue and wow your guests (you’ll also be sending them home healthier!).  Although I generally make my own ground lamb patties, this time I used Atkins Ranch California Style Lamb Patties.  The sweet potatoes, goat cheese and chives give the dish a crossover between Greek & French cuisines.  Enjoy!

FYI: Lamb is considered a “game” meat and what that means is you’re probably safer consuming an animal that grazes in the open rather than factory farmed animals confined to a pin.
