Made lamb burgers for dinner tonight. I enjoy lamb, while S isn’t usually a huge fan of the flavor, but she was a good sport today. I think more than anything else, I just like saying lamb burger. Lamburger. Laaaamburger.
Anyhow, I do say that this blog is about food too, so I may or may not occasionally post a recipe or two. However, one of my quirks in the kitchen is that I rarely follow an exact recipe (except maybe for baking, where accurate measurements can be more important). Most of the time I take ideas from a recipe, or several similar recipes, and add my own touch. I know, I should have been a chef. So if I’m relaying a recipe to y’all, I’ll probably stick with very precise ingredient amounts like “a little,” “a bunch,” and “some.” Okay, the details:
About a pound of ground lamb
Crumbled feta cheese (1/2 cup or so?)
Couple cloves of crushed garlic
Spoonful of molasses
Moroccan seasoning (this is just a jar of stuff we had in the cupboard that I thought would work well – use any other spices you prefer, to taste)
Mix all the above (by hand is more fun than with a utensil; nothing like squeezing ground meat between your fingers). Saute in a pan, or grill, or bake. I pan-fried tonight. Serve on a toasted bun, and top with my homemade yogurt sauce.
One small container of Greek yogurt
More feta cheese
More Moroccan seasoning
Mix all these too.
Serves two to four. I made some whoppers, so it was only two.
