Chatting around the kitchen island can give you quite an appetite. For your next potluck with family or friends, we're willing to bet that these mini lamb and OKA Raclette cheeseburgers will be a hit. But take it from a cheese that's been around for a while: plan on making more rather than not enough. These sliders have an annoying habit of disappearing in just minutes.

  1. In a large bowl, mix ground lamb, fresh herbs, egg, bread crumbs, shredded OKA, salt and pepper.
  2. Divide mix in 12 equal 50 g x 1 cm thick patties or the size of a golf ball.
  3. Cut onion and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes at medium heat until it caramelises. Deglaze with 15 ml (1 tbsp.) balsamic vinegar. Set aside.
  4. Cook patties on the BBQ at high heat for about 2 minutes on each side or until completely cooked.
  5. Place OKA Raclette slices on the patties and let them melt.
  6. Slowly brown breads, place patties and cover with caramelised onion, cherry tomatoes, pickles and fresh herbs, to taste.
