Spiced Lamb and Feta Burger

400g minced lamb (if pack is 450g just use it all)
100g feta cheese, crumbled 
1 small red onion, grated
1 tbsp harissa
small handful parsley, chopped
4 bread rolls

Put the mince in a bowl with the crumbled feta, red onion, harissa and chopped parsley.  Season well then shape into 4 burgers.  Put on a sheet of greaseproof paper on a baking tray and place in the fridge.

Leave in the fridge for around 30 minutes then to cook grill or griddle for 4 - 5 minutes on each side.  Serve in the buns with rocket and tzatziki.

These burgers were delicious and my partner said it's one of the best things I've ever made.  They weren't very spicy so next time I'll try doubling the harissa paste.  They don't need much salt because of the feta so don't go overboard with salt.  Don't be disappointed if you cut into your burger and the feta seems to have disappeared it seems to melt but leave a really nice feta taste all throughout.
