Recipe: Lamb patties and tomato salad


500g (1lb) lamb mince
1/5 cup fresh breadcrumbs
1 red onion, chopped
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp finely chopped rosemary leaves
Sea salt and cracked black pepper
4 rashers bacon, trimmed and halved
Vegetable oil for shallow frying
4 vine-ripened tomatoes, sliced
1 cup basil leaves
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil


Place the mince, breadcrumbs, onion, cumin, rosemary, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix well to combine. Use a 1/4 cup (2f l oz measure) to shape the mince mixture into eight patties and wrap with the bacon. Cover the base of a non-stick frying pan with the oil and heat over medium heat. Add the patties and cook for 3 minutes each side or until cooked through. Place the tomatoes, basil and balsamic and olive oil in a bowl and toss to combine. Served the salad with the patties and spoon over any remaining balsamic mixture.
