This recipe was inspired by Southern Living Magazine's version of Fig Glazed Beef Burgers with Red Onion Jam. Because I love lamb, I created a burger with ground lamb and ground veal. The center was stuffed with feta cheese that had sun-dried tomatoes and basil. The fig jam is the star of this burger. I served it on Honey Whole Wheat Buns, with fresh spinach and a topping of cooked red onions with a sweet & sour flavor. Wow, what a burger! I will show you, step-by-step how to make this on my food blog at: http://foodiewife-kitchen.blogspot.com/2010/08/feta-stuffed-fig-glazed-grilled-lamb.html

Ingredients

Vegetable cooking spray
1 pound ground lamb
½ pound ground veal*
2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
2 tsp Montreal Steak Seasoning (or season with kosher salt, fresh cracked pepper and garlic powder, to taste)
2 tsp fresh oregano (or 1 tsp dried)
3-4 Tbsp fresh parsley (optional)
3 tablespoons fig preserves
2-3 thin slices feta cheese
4 quality hamburger buns, toasted
fresh spinach leaves, for garnish
For the red onion jam:
4 cups thinly sliced red onions (about 2 medium)
1 teaspoon olive oil
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup red wine vinegar
1-2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
NOTE: mixing veal (or pork) can tone down the flavor of lamb
