Form the mixture into 10 patties, approximately 1 1/2 oz. patties.  Place the patties onto a parchment lined sheet pan and chill for about 6 minutes.

Brush the patties with the oil and place onto a preheated grill over medium high heat for approximately 2-3 minutes on each side or, if using broil mode, place the patties on a broil pan and place under a preheated broil on high for about 3-4 minutes each side.

Garlic Aioli

Place all the ingredients into a blender and puré until combined and smooth.  Remove sauce from blender and place into a container or bowl and cover.  Chill for about 12 minutes.

Assemble

Cut the rolls in half, place 1 lamb patty on each roll and add a dollop of the garlic aioli.  Top with tomatoes, romaine, onions and cheese.

Secure sliders with frill style toothpicks and serve.
