Memorial Day Coming Next Week: Try These Lamb Recipes on the Grill

Get ready to fire up those grills this weekend. Memorial Day is on the way.

All right, in an area blessed with mild winters and sunshine 365 days a year (yes, even those rainy summer days see at least a bit of light), we don't really have a grilling season like the rest of the country. We have more of a barbecue way of life.

Still, as is the case in places with less outdoor cooking time, it's easy to get stuck in a rut.

Between hamburgers, turkey burgers, tuna burger, heck, even black bean burgers, you have to hit a point where you're over the same old patties and hot-dog-type options.

Why not try something a bit more exciting? How about lamb?

Right now, the Australian Lamb Board is making a big push for spring, and it's pulled together recipes from some of the top restaurants in the country that can spruce up your Memorial Day party -- you can always pretend you made it up.
