With Australia Day approaching, I thought I’d share a recipe that’s easy enough for the kids to get involved and make, and one the whole family will love. These Moroccan Lamb Burgers can be pre-made and are great cooked on the BBQ.
You can also use this mince mix to make little meatballs to include in the school lunch.
Take a look at the variations (below the main recipe) for suggestions to alter the recipe to suit your specific dietary requirements.
