Ingredients

1/2 cup plain dried bread crumbs

1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf Italian parsley

1 large egg, lightly beaten

2 tablespoons whole milk

1/2 cup grated Pecorino Romano

1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes

3/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 pound ground lamb

6 large slices prosciutto, sliced medium-thin (for wrapping the burgers)

1/4 cup olive oil

Fresh basil leaves, for topping each burger

Fresh tomato slices, for topping each burger

Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling

Balsamic vinegar, for drizzling

Directions

  1. In a large bowl combine the bread crumbs, parsley, egg, milk, cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, salt, and pepper, Stir to combine. Add the lamb and stir until incorporated. Divide the mixture into 6 (1-inch) thick burgers. Place the slices of prosciutto on a cutting board or piece of parchment paper. Place 1 lamb burger in the center of each slice of prosciutto and wrap the prosciutto around the burger.
  2. Place a large, heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil and heat for 2 minutes. Place the lamb burgers, prosciutto-covered side down in the pan and cook over medium heat until the prosciutto is golden, about 6 to 8 minutes. Turn the burgers and finish cooking, about 6 to 8 minutes more.
  3. Remove the burgers from the pan and place on a serving platter or individual plates. Top each burger with 2 to 3 basil leaves, 1 to 2 slices of tomato, and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Serve immediately.
