With Australia Day fast approaching and the weather hotting up into the mid to high 30’s, I thought a few ideas for easy food to feed the family or a group of hungry friends might be just what the butcher ordered!!

Australia Day is traditionally celebrated with lamb, so let’s have a look at a few options for both finger food for the stand up party goers as well as some recipes requiring the use of a fork!

Finger Food

  • Lamb sausage rolls with harissa yogurt
  • Lamb, capsicum and onion skewers
  • Beer-barbecued lamb ribs
  • Sausage and onion jam rolls
  • Lamb cutlets with charred corn and yoghurt dressing
  • Lamb burgers with buffalo mozzarella and cucumber salad
  • Lamb tikka flatbreads
  • Sumac and yoghurt lamb kebabs with raw beetroot salad
  • Lamb sliders with harissa and mint

Fork Food

  • Slow-cooked lamb shoulder with zucchini and feta salad
  • Lamb cutlets with rice tabbouleh and tahini sauce
  • Barbecued butterflied lamb with olive oil chips
  • Roast lamb with pomegranate glaze
