Handheld Nordic-inspired burgers offer an easy and fun introduction to lamb. These sliders are topped with skyr, a tangy Icelandic dairy product with a thick consistency like strained yogurt, and a sprinkling of celery leaves.
1 (5.3-ounce) container plain skyr or 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1/3 cup thinly sliced celery (from about 1 stalk)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
8 small soft whole grain buns, toasted
1/4 cup celery leaves (from about 1 bunch)
In a medium bowl, mix lamb with pepper and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. Form into 8 small patties each about 3-inches across. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add patties and cook until cooked to your desired doneness, 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine skyr, sliced celery, chives and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Serve burgers on toasted buns topped with skyr mixture and celery leaves.
