Lamb Burgers stuffed with fig goat cheese
By Chef Lippe
This time of the year is my favorite! I grill all year long but summer BBQ time is so nice to have a quick easy dish that tastes good and is little work. My Lamb burgers are made with ground lamb shoulder and stuffed with a sweet fig goat cheese.
Lamb Burger Ingredients:
1 ½ pound ground lamb shoulder
½ cup minced Italian parsley
1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
4 cloves of garlic finely chopped
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon salt
½ teaspoon white pepper
Fig Goat Cheese Ingredients:
¼ cup honey
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
12 Fresh figs
¼ cup soft fresh goat cheese
Mix lamb, parsley, lemon, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper together in a bowl. Form into 4” balls and make a thumb print in centers for cheese filling. Set aside and make cheese.
Goat Cheese. Combine honey and pepper, stir to blend. Chop fresh figs into small pieces and mix with goat cheese and honey pepper mixture. Drop by spoon into thumb prints of lamb burger balls. Clover with lamb and flatten each ball into burger.
Grill and eat!
