Yum!!! We altered the recipe a bit: used minced rosemary (fresh) instead of cilantro, because we're not fans of cilantro; used red wine (a cab sav) instead of sherry, simply because we had a bottle open and wanted to use it up; used 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper instead of red pepper flakes, which we didn't have on hand; and omitted the allspice. But man oh man were these burgers delicious! This was our first time trying to make our own lamb burgers, after having loved some real gems at restaurants, and this recipe made us wonder what took us so long to try it ourselves. The only thing we'll do different next time is cook them a little less time. We did 4 minutes per side, and that gave us burgers brown all the way through, but still juicy. But I prefer some pink in the middle, so next time we'll maybe try between 2 and 3 minutes per side. We served with tzaziki (using a video recipe also on this site, which was produced by foodwishes.blogspot.ca, where the actual ingredients and amounts are written out). Feta, I think, might overwhelm the pure goodness of these patties. Taste the burgers first, before deciding whether to add feta. You may find, as we did, that it's completely unnecessary.
