“A recipe I found in the Australian Womans Weekly. I made them up for my husband to BBQ and they were absolutely delicious. You can either roast the red capsicums (peppers) yourself or buy them pre-made.”

Ready In:


  • 1

    tablespoon olive oil
  • 1

    loaf Turkish bread, cut into 4 portions, each split in half
  • 12

    cup hummus
  • 70

    g Baby Spinach
  • 150

    g roasted red capsicums, sliced thickly (roasted peppers)
  • 12

    small red onion, sliced thinly

  • chili sauce (optional)
  • For the Lamb Patties

  • 34

    cup fresh breadcrumb
  • 2

    tablespoons milk
  • 500

    g lamb mince
  • 1

    medium brown onion, coarsely grated
  • 14

    cup chopped of fresh mint
  • 1

    garlic clove, crushed
  • 2

    teaspoons ground cumin


  • Place breadcrumbs in a medium bowl and pour the milk over. Add the mince, onion, mint, garlic and cumin. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Use your hands to mix until well combined.
  • Divide the mixture into 4 even portions and shape each portion into a patty about 15cm in diameter and 1cm thick.
  • Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat until hot. Add the Lamb Patties and cook for 5 minutes. Turn and cook the patties for a further 2-3 minutes or until just cooked through. Alternatively you can BBQ these on a grill.
  • Meanwhile, preheat grill on high. Place bread portions, cut-side up, on an oven tray and toast under preheated grill for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. To serve, spread the bottom halves of the bread portions with a little hummus.
  • Top with the spinach, roasted red capsicum, Lamb Patties, onion, remaining hummus, red onion and the chilli sauce. Season with freshly ground black pepper.
  • Cover with top of the bread portions and serve immediately.

I live in Perth, Western Australia. I am an Office Manager in a Mining Exploration Company. I love summer and going to the beach. I also like rugging up in warm clothing during winter. I love watching cable tv with my hubby on quiet nights at home. I love cooking with a glass of red wine but equally I like a beer or two! I have two cats who I adore but who live with my parents as our place is on a main road and I want them to have a long life. We have recently acquired 2 Jack Russell puppies who are so adorable. They are now part of our little family. DH and I like to get away down south of Western Australia at least 4 times a year. We are happy to stay in 5 star hotels or camp! Depends on the mood! We have recently purchased a block way down south of Western Australia in a little coastal town called Hopetoun. We are looking forward to building a house and spending a lot more time down there, with the view that we will retire down there and enjoy our fishing life. I am happy with my life and look forward to having children with my lovely husband. I don’t have many dislikes but I do dislike bitchiness and arrogance.
