Expert Tips

To broil patties, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, turning once.

One-half teaspoon of dried basil and 1/4 teaspoon of dried oregano can be used in place of the fresh herbs in this recipe.

Ground lamb, or any combination of ground beef, lamb and pork, can be used for these burgers.

Mix up a double batch of the burger mixture. Shape the patties and freeze half of them. The frozen patties can go directly from the freezer to the grill to be enjoyed on a hectic weeknight.

Serve these burgers with tabbouleh and a refreshing fruit sorbet.
