1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tbsp whole milk
56g grated Pecorino Romano
56g chopped sun-dried tomatoes
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
500g lamb mince
6 large slices prosciutto, sliced medium-thin (for wrapping the burgers)
55ml olive oil
Fresh basil leaves, for topping each burger
Fresh tomato slices, for topping each burger

Balsamic vinegar, for drizzling
1) In a large bowl combine the breadcrumbs, parsley, egg, milk, cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, salt and pepper, Stir to combine. Add the lamb and stir until incorporated.

2) Divide the mixture into six (2.5cm) thick burgers. Place the slices of prosciutto on a cutting board or piece of greaseproof paper. Place one lamb burger in the centre of each slice of prosciutto and wrap the prosciutto around the burger.

3) Place a large, heavy frying pan over a medium heat. Add the olive oil and heat for two 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.

4) 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.
